Could Wenger really sell “Mr. Arsenal”?

With four days remaining until the official opening day of the transfer window everyone is waiting for a flurry of big money bids for so-called “home-grown” players to fulfil the new FA regulations. From the start of next season every Premiership team must have at least 8 HG players in their squads.

Man City are in the horrendous position of only having 3 at this moment in time, so they will be getting their big fat cheque book out and start enticing other clubs to sell them their best Englishman. Obviously one of their main targets will be Raheem Sterling, but another one of Pelligrini’s favourites is our very own Jack Wilshere.

Arsenal have been known in the past to sell some of our staff to Man City to swell our own coffers, usually at vastly inflated prices, but could Arsene Wenger seriously listen to any offers for Our Jack?

One man who thinks it is just about impossible to consider letting Wilshere move on is the former England and Man United star Rio Ferdinand. This is what he had to say: “Arsenal can’t sell him… They can’t sell him. That’s Mr Arsenal right there. He is Arsenal, he is living and breathing Arsenal. He doesn’t want to leave. Fans will pull the place down.”

There are many Arsenal fans that agree with him, but for some Jack is the epitome of unfulfilled promise, and it has been pointed out many times that Arsenal win more games when Wilshere is not playing than with him in the starting line-up.

So let’s play a little game and discuss what your reaction would be if Man City rang you up and offered £60 million for him? Stick or twist?

    60 mil would be a great deal. We can get Vidal with that money. I fancy Vidal much more than jack, if I had to go for one I would pick Vidal. I hope jack stays. Great talent and he must show it and keep fit. I don’t think Wenger would listen to any offers for jack. Only if jack says he wants to leave, then Wenger might consider the bid..I hope jack stays and we add Vidal to our already talented midfield

      Aguero will go to Madrid. N we get benzema. Don’t say benzema is overrated. He is better than giroud in every way.

    My guess, Wenger is working secretly on deal to bring javi Martinez. You know y, javi is not connected to us til now. Its surprising Bayern isn’t using him much. He can play both cb n DM.

        Javi return from his injury at the end of March. And he got a few games under his belt. I think he would be very expensive.
        bayern paid so much money for him. £30 to £35 mill for a DM is not Wenger’s idea of signing. Who knows? But that will be a great transfer.

      Apparently it’s taking longer due to the fact that they are clearing out the medical room of all Diaby’s possessions. He realised he was spending so much time there that he may as well treat it as his home and moved in.

      Once his stuff is out the way they should be able to commence with Cech’s Medical Check.

    City can go look elsewhere to do their shopping, we are no longer in a position where we need to sell our players.

    And if we do it should be at 3 times their value.

    Wilshere = 90 millions for City

    Off topic completely because this is never going to happen – how come every transfer we make takes a minimum of two years, and then it may never happen – Cech, Schneiderlin etc, but every other club does it in 3 days, as in Manure with Schneiderlin?

      They never happen because we were never in for them. Did we bid for Schneiderlin?

      If there was one thing that would improve the quality of discussion on this forum it would be if everyone could get up to speed on how the transfer window/rumour mill works. I am guessing that there are still a good proportion of posters who assume that once they see a player linked to us then a) it must be true and b) Wenger is on the phone trying to do a deal.

    Wilshire for me has been outstanding since his return from that big lay off he must stay.

      He only played in
      a few end of season
      knock about games
      against rubbish English
      club teams and Slovenia ranked 48th.
      Wilshere is always lively after 4 months off.
      But that only lasts 5-6 games
      then he’s injured another 3 – 6 months.
      And this pattern has repeated 6 years in a row.

    Haha, no chance, and the reasons are out there for all to see.

    Because of the home grown rule, it looks likely Ospina (who put in another world class performance against Argentina last night) is going, and we’re keeping Szczesny who isn’t even good enough to lace Ospina’s boots. So if Wenger was to get rid of a home grown player…then why Wilshere instead of Szczesny?

    Another reason Wilshere won’t go is because of loyalty. Wenger is so loyal to his players, blindly at times, so it’s very unlikely he’d sell a player he’s been working with and developing since a young boy. Now that Wilshere’s putting in some top quality performances, why on earth would Wenger sell?!

    I can only imagine a transfer happening because of Wilshere pushing for it. But again, no chance…unless Wenger continues with his no rotation, and putting players in the wrong position policy haha.

    Have Arsenal a stockpile of home growns whereas they can afford to let one go for a good cash? 8 home growns are said to be the minimum required at a Premier club, right? Man city & Arsenal transfer marketing relationship is lopsided. With Man City getting the players they want from us and we have not taken any one from them. I think it’s time the Boss does a two way transfer business with Man City, if City can meet Arsenal valuation for Jack Wilshere. Have Man City ever failed to get the player they want from Arsenal? But there is the first time of failure. Will Arsenal do a Ashley Cole, William Gallas plus Cash transfer business with Man City? Will Arsenal demand for non home grown top player and cash for letting Wilshere go to City? Is Jack Wilshere off the field behaviour a discipline deed. Apart of been caught smoking and drawing from Shisha pipe, is it ethical and gentlemanly of him to drop Lauren Neal, the mother of his 2 children and start running about with Andriani Michael all over the place? Jack is not only a smoker but also an open womanizer. Why can’t he marry the mother of his children to settle down?

    The reality is……. Football is still a business and EVERY player has a selling price.

    A club may even demand twice the market price but they will sell if the price is high enough.

    Every PLAYER has his price also. If a club offers 3 or 4 times current salary, the player will be pressured from many people to take the money and run. (wives, managers, players from the new club, etc)
