Flamini holding up Arsenal transfer plans?

It will come as no surprise to Arsenal fans to hear that Arsene Wenger has been trying to find a way to get the French midfielder Mathieu Flamini out of the club. Ever since his younger compatriot Francis Coquelin burst back onto the scene for Arsenal about half way through last season, Flamini’s days have been numbered.

And now we have the Spanish club captain Mikel Arteta fit again, the chance of the Gunners finding a place in the first team for the former AC Milan man are almost non-existent. But Flamini still has a year to run on his contract and with a reported weekly salary of around £60,000 a week, the Daily Mail is reporting that we have failed to find him another club.

Apparently the Turkish champions Galatasaray were keen but the transfer has not been done and their window closed last night. Could this be what is stopping Wenger from bringing in a new central midfielder, such as the young PSG star Adrien Rabiot?

If so, surely we can persuade some club to take Flamini on loan, perhaps even Galatasaray. If he is not going to play, why not do whatever it takes to free up his place in the Arsenal squad?

    In Europe’s top 5 leagues, only one club haven’t signed an outfield player this summer. Guess who it is?

    As for Flamini, sell him for spare parts over in Deptford.

        We will no the truth when we finally do get Arsenals next signings ..whenever that may be :(. If our eventual next signings are jaw dropping well then we will know that he meant every word of only signing special players ..but if the next one or two barely stand up against Schneiderlin Wanyama Draxler etc ..or on a par with them well then we know that he failed to plan and seriously let the fans down. Every PL club has signed at least five shiny new toys whilst we got one, one of the best all the same, but not enough.

          There’s still time to sign wanyama but I doubt it,
          Because of the way he demanded to leave,
          Just like sterling. .. that’s what put Wenger off from signing him.

            I don’t think Wenger would sign him if Southampton held a leaving party for him – only if he came at 80% discount. Schneiderlin was perfect for Wenger, yet he did nada.

            You don’t know what to believe in the press, but everything seems typical Wenger so far. He made an offer and refuses to budge. how many times have we been in this situation before? Hazard? Suarez? Mata? Higuain? Bring back David Dein – we need a negotiate who can negotiate, and devolve power from Wenger.

            Keep on thinking about rewriting a Christmas Carol, with obviously Wenger buying someone on transfer day, to the delight of the downtrodden fans at the end. I can’t think who would play the ghosts ATM though…

      Fair enough 50 mill for
      a 28 yr old is too high.
      Not totally sure
      about 16 mill for Rabiot.
      But he could be a cover for injury prone Wilshere
      and a possible replacement for Cazorla and being 21
      should easily recoup his fee if he moves.

    Comment from the Guardian on transfers:

    I read the comments of supporters on forums and YouTube (perhaps not the most level-headed sources of information) and modern day fans are like babies. There are now massive numbers of Arsenal fans who want Wenger out because he hasn’t panic bought someone on transfer deadline day. In fact, I don’t know why I’m mentioning Arsenal, because Man Utd fans want van Gaal out, Liverpool fans want Rodgers out, Tottenham fans want Pochettino out, Everton fans want Martinez out, and even Chelsea fans are starting to turn on Mourinho.

    If it was left to supporters in this day and age, every manager would get sacked in the PL apart from the manager that wins the league, but if he had a mediocre start to the following season then he’d get the bullet as well.

Martinez is a proven goal scorer, he even scored like 8 goals in the champions league, instead he kept trying for players we all know clubs wouldn’t sell. How about carlos bacca, or is he saying giroud is better than these two. It’s time for him to retire.

    We could have got Jackson Martinez for half the price and he would have loved to come here. He openly said this, that he grew up an Arsenal fan

    Anyway, if we get Rabiot then he will be good backup to Coquelin at least. With Coquelin, Rabiot, Wilshere and Bielik, our Holding Midfielder future would look good.

    However, without another prolific CF or winger we will once again fight for 4th place.

    £50 millon for a nearly 29 year old is not good business but on deadline day you have to pay the extra money. This is what happens when you wait and gamble

    Cavani is NOT as prolific as Ibrahimovic or Benzema. Actually, he misses easy chances quite often but beggers can’t be choosers

    As commented above it may be better to pay over £60 millon for Higuain’s release clause. Higuain is pretty much same as Cavani but a couple of years younger.

    Anyway, if we don’t get either Cavani or Higuain or get someone like Welbeck, it will be shameful
