Arsenal rumoured to have bid big for a player by Twig
According to rumours on Twitter, Arsenal have reportedly bid 30 million pounds for a player today. The story originated from the trusty GeofArsenal who has got some insider information on Arsenal correct in the past. Wenger has consistently said he would bid that much if he found the right player. His comments after the Swansea game show that Arsenal is indeed looking but that he would not mention names.
So which player could it be? Wenger notoriously bids a bit less than the parent club think the player is worth. In that light, if the rumour is true, it is quite possible that the player in question could be Falcao or Cavani who could easily cost more than the 30 million pounds reportedly offered.
Looking at yesterday’s game it is clear that Arsenal sorely miss a clinical target man. Chance after chance was created by our midfielders but our strikers couldn’t score. A striker in the mould of Cavani will give Arsenal that much needed penetration and ruthlessness in front of goal. Another player that could probably need such big money investment is Fellaini. Even though Moyes has played him primarily as a forward, the player fancies his best position to be in central midfield where Arsenal need strengthening.
There have also been reports from Spain that Real Madrid are unhappy with the Argentinean star Angel Di Maria, with Jose Mourinho dropping him from the starting line up in recent weeks. However, he plays in the same position as Theo Walcott on the right.
So which big name player would you like to see? My hunch is that the player is Cavani. I honestly don’t see Madrid selling Falcao at this crucial moment of their season. A bid for Falcao is additionally likely to be unsuccessful, since Madrid can potentially get much more for him from Chelsea than Arsenal. Fingers crossed.
