DONE DEAL? Arsenal finally agree defensive midfielder transfer

It has been over nine years since Arsenal lost the services of one of the best midfielders the club has ever had in Patrick Vieira. And three years later we also said goodbye to the Brazilian international Gilberto Silva who had done a great job giving the Gunners some real steel in the middle of the park.

And now it appears that Arsene Wenger has finally joined the consensus of opinion that Arsenal need another player of that ilk if we are to turn our creative talent into a Premier League title and regular trophies. If you believe some of the many recent Arsenal transfer rumours, then Wenger may have been close to signing a powerful central midfielder during this summer transfer window.

However, according to a Daily Star report, the Frenchman has finally made up his mind and it is the German World Cup winner Sami Khedira that he will bring to the Emirates. The paper claims that the transfer is almost agreed already, with Arsenal and the player having come to terms over the personal side of the move.

All that is left is for us to agree the transfer fee with his current club Real Madrid, who know that January is their last chance to get any money for the 27-year old before he walks away for nothing at the end of the season. And Arsenal might even be able to play Khedira in the Champions League, assuming we are still in it, because he has not played for his La Liga club so far this season

    Great another broken player
    FFS he got injured warming up for the world cup final, how long do you think he will last in the PL?
    I hope this is bullsh1t but it wouldn’t surprise me that with a number of rock solid brick shithouse players out there Wenger goes for a non dedicated DM and a box to box crocked player.

    Not true. If Wenger wanted Khedira, he would’ve picked him up this summer. Madrid wanted rid and Khedira wanted out but nobody was interested, probably due to his poor injury record. Can’t see it happening.

    I am a bit nervous for today.
    And the worst part is no more football for the next two weeks if we do badly in this game.
    The bitterness of the game increase ten folds.

    If Kheidra could stay fit and
    still had the hunger to succeed
    absolutely sign him.
    A 10 mill spend would be worth it if we win the title.
    But so much could happen between then and now
    and we have a huge squad allready.

    Pleasseee Not Khediera !!
    If we want to buy him at all, lets make it a Swap deal… Give us Khediera & take wenger.
    Wenger will never replace a player in his squad, unless he stop believing in them. So as long as he’s in love with Arteta & Flamini…. FORGET ANY HOPE OF A DM !! THEY ARE ALL RUMORS.

    I don’t think is right to write “Vieira” in the same article with “Khedira”.This to name’s are to different.Show a little respect to Vieira and don’t put him alongside a player who don’t play at Real in the first XI when is fully fit and don’t make something great for any time in his carrer.The fotlbalistic style is different between them to.I think THE ONLY PLAYER who can be labbeled “The next Vieira” in that moment in the world is PAUL POGBA.

    If Khedira was that much of a Bergen and a game changer I bet Jose Mourinho would not let us have him, we shal see,

    Of topick= I’m geting sick and tired of hearing about Fabregas hope we can make him and Costa coffe look avarage today and why o why dose Arsen take this shit from Jose we have the funds buy the player we desperately need instead of buying injury prone or end of contract has beens AW has not beaten Chelsea yet 13 out of 13 games Shame on us i just hope we can change that today but it’s a tall order.
