In the last few transfer windows Arsenal fans have clamoured for Wenger to go out and buy a beast of a defensive midfielder, but there didn’t seem to be any suitable ones available (Well, not according to Wenger anyway!)
But this summer there looks to be LOTS available, and the one that looks perfect to Arsenal fans (and hopefully Arsene as well) is Monaco’s Geoffrey Kondogbia, who was extremely impressive (and scored) as his team knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League.
The reason he is even more perfect than other possible targets is because he is big (6ft 2″), he is strong, he is young (just turned 22), he is FRENCH, and he even has lots of experience despite his tender years. He has played for his country at every level from the U16 upwards, including three games for the senior French side, and has even spent a year in La Liga with Sevilla. And the final reason that Wenger is likely to go for him is because Monaco are only asking for £25million to buy out his contract!
It was reported yesterday that Inter Milan had offered around £18m for Frenchman, but today the Mirror, amongst others, reckon that Arsenal is now ready to offer the full asking price for the talented youngster, and this could prove to be an excellent investment if he continues his improvement under Wenger’s tutelage at the Emirates.
I don’t need to ask if the readers are keen for Arsenal to sign him, as I am pretty sure all of us do, so I am just going to urge Wenger to go and get him NOW!
Onwards and Upwards!
