Another player declares his wish to play for Arsenal! by AH
So in the past we have seen so many players declare an interest in one day signing for the Gunners. Some of these players are big star names, most recently supposedly Barcelona’s David Villa, who reportedly wants out in the summer to join the Gunners after a move failed to materialise in the January window. The majority of the time it’s lesser known players, almost worthy of Arsenal fan status just like you and me. Unfortunately this is another one of those players, a midfielder who we have never heard of before and are likely never to hear of again as the players rarely get their wish when it comes to signing under Arsene Wenger.
The player is maybe a lot closer to home than you expected and he in fact plays for Fulham. Sadly it’s not Brede Hangeland, John Arne Riise, Urby Emmanuelson or even our very own Emmanuel Frimpong. But it is in fact Iranian midfielder, Ashkan Dejagah who has revealed he dreams of playing for Arsenal as well as Manchester United or Chelsea.
He said in an interview with ISNA News Agency, “I am concentrating on Fulham and I want to do my best in the team. I hope we finish in a good place at the end of the current season. Such as the many other players, I want to play in the big teams. I dream of playing in England giants Manchester United, Arsenal or Chelsea.”
I’m sure the player has talent and if he makes it at the big stage then well done to him but I don’t think he will get his chance at Arsenal, and it’s definitely not something for the fans to be getting excited about. The main point of this article isn’t to point out that there is a needless player dreaming about playing for Arsenal, but it is in fact about the fact that we are still seen by players as a “BIG” club, a status that has been questionable and under threat over the last few years.
Whether it be an unknown player or the world’s best talent, it’s good to see that the players still see Arsenal as one of the biggest teams and not just our fans.
