Arsenal boss has NOT ruled out Wanyama transfer

After the Arsenal transfer rumours last week that claimed that the Southampton and Kenya international midfielder Victor Wanyama was the man that Arsene Wenger had place on top of his transfer wish list, or at least the player to replace the injury hit Francis Coquelin anyway, the Arsenal boss was asked about this in his press conference.

And after Sky Sports reported that the Frenchman had dismissed the speculation that he was set to complete the transfer in January, the football media in general are saying that Wenger has ruled out signing Wanyama.

Our manager said yesterday, “I rate the player but we are not on the case. We will be out there and see what we can do. But at the moment we have the whole of December to go and we are in a good position in the Premier League.

“At the moment it is important we don’t lose more players because we are short and that everybody contributes fully, like they did on Wednesday and Saturday, so we can have consistency until January.”

Having heard hundreds of comments like this from the Prof, I must say that this one does not sound like a complete denial to me. Not on the case does not mean that he is not interested or that Wanyama is not one of the players he wants to sign. To me it just means that the Gunners are not currently in talks and even then we do not know that Wenger is being entirely open. To be fair, why would he?

I do not think we should write off the transfer of this Premier League star to Arsenal just yet, especially as Metro is reporting that Southampton are already closing in on a replacement in the shape of the Porto player Gianelli Imbula.

Do you think Wanyama would be the right transfer for Arsenal?

    In as much as Wanyama could be a right buy for Arsenal if they buy him from Southampton who are well known for selling their players far above their market price, Arsenal may not sign Wanyama during this coming January transfer window as being purported by the media. The reason being, Arsenal don’t desprately need Wanyama or a new DMF for their DM role. Arsenal aready have the Billionaire Flamini who has steped it up and efficiently mannig the DM position at Arsenal midfield in place of the injured Arsenal’s resident DM Coquelin. I know there is a fear in some Arsenal fans quarters that are fearing a scenario of an unavoidable unavailabity of Flamini before Coquelin returns. But I can assure my fellow Gooners not to panic as Arsenal have another DMF opition in the young Gunner of Kamara they could deploy to the DM position to hold fort in the interim.

    If u ask me, I think Wanyama is rated highly than Imbula but…it seems he’s not been performing too well of late
