Arsenal make inquiries about Sturridge by TS
Is it just me or are Arsenal linked with a lot of loan transfers this season? Be that as it may, The Daily Mirror are saying that Arsenal have taken an interest in loaning Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge to the Emirates. However, Chelsea are not willing to let the player go until they bring in a replacement striker. The Mirror also claim that Liverpool and Spurs have asked about the player. Why is it when we are linked to someone are those two moronic clubs following us like a bunch of starving hyenas waiting to feed off our scraps?
With Mr Bendtner on loan to Juventus we still have the likes of Chamakh and Park but if they were to leave today we would be left with just Giroud as a recognised striker. Podolski can play in that position but even so, we would be stretched thin in that department so its no wonder AW is making inquiries about bringing in Sturridge. Arsenal are also the only one of the three clubs interested who could offer Sturridge Champions League football but as we’ve seen before, (Sahin) that’s not the only thing that attracts players to a club.
If its true that AW is bringing Sturridge that means that Chelsea are looking to up their firepower before the transfer window closes because I can’t see Chelsea allowing a loan deal for a striker if they not in the market for buying one. This may be true but there are a lot of negatives surrounding it. For one, How happy would AW be to take one of Chelsea’s players, help develop him and then let him return to Stamford Bridge in 12 months time? Secondly, why loan out Bendtner if we were just going to loan out Sturridge? They two players who are pretty much in the same ball park anyways.
I could understand if we were interested in buying the player, but I don’t know if loaning him is actually a viable option. The thing I hate most about the idea, is that loaning players makes us look bad. Like we struggling to get the funds to actually make a move for a transfer-which just simply isn’t true. I say if Wenger wants Sturridge’s signature then he should put in a transfer bid- if we get rejected, at least we’ll go out in style.
