There is an excellent Arsenal transfer rumour out this morning saying that the brilliant Bayern Munich and Holland hitman Arjen Robben is fully intending to leave the Bundesliga this summer, and would love to return to London where he had three excellent season’s with Chelsea.
He has been turned on by the other Bayern players and the fans for “being selfish”, despite some immense performances in his time there, and really enjoyed his trip to Wembley last week when he scored the winner in Holland’s 3-2 win over England.
This has led today’s Mirror to suggest that he is looking for a return to a top London team, possibly Arsenal?
Robben said: “I can try put up a brave face and make out all the things in Munich do not affect me, but of course it gets on my nerves and effects me. I just needed this game against England so much. It was a joy to be playing at my best again.”
“It was great to play at Wembley and to see many people I know. It was only my second international game for Holland since the World Cup and it was great that this was in London at Wembley.”
Robben is approaching the final year of his contract with the German giants so is expected to be allowed to leave for a fee of around just £10 million.
Should Wenger bring him to Arsenal to play alongside his international team-mate Robin Van Persie this summer?
