Ki Sung Yeung to Arsenal? by TS
Well it seems these next coming days will be riddled with Arsenal transfer rumors and the Gunners are once again being linked with anyone wanting a transfer. On our list today is the Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng who has told the club that he would like a move to the Premier League. Now with Sahin on his way, M’villa still in the cross hairs and Biglia on the fringes one has to wonder just how many midfielders the media thinks Arsenal need!
The story was reported by the Daily Star and stated that Arsenal were interested in acquiring the midfielder along with Swansea and QPR. Which granted isn’t the finest selection of clubs to be competing with but does not necessarily rule out the guys potential. Having said that, I haven’t seen him play and hadn’t heard of him since today so I think I can safely say, the lad is relatively unknown and not the type of player we need to be signing right now.
I did some research though because Arsenal have been known to sign some unknowns and the player, who joined Celtic in 2009, is still only 23 years old. With Song gone, perhaps the media are linking him with us just until Sahin becomes official- at least that what I hope. Stranger things have been known to happen!
Arsenal surely would be wary to sign an unknown given everyone’s expectations for quality players. Even though the Korean international would probably be dirt cheap and probably end up backing up a back up player for our first choice back up. Let’s hope this is just a source of tabloid gossip! I don’t think we need to deplete our already thin wage structures any further…
