There have been loads of Arsenal transfer rumours lately that Arsene Wenger is going to have a clear out of underperforming Gunners this summer, in a final bid to win the Premiership in the last year of his current contract. To be honest it sounds very unlike Wenger as his favourite words are usually cohesion and team spirit during the summer transfer window.
But it is no means beyond belief that he may sell a couple of stars to add to his transfer fund and bring in a top striker, which is something we obviously need (and have done for some time). Today, according to FootballInsider, it would appear that Manchester City are still trying to desperately increase their home-grown quota to satisfy the new FA Rules, and there may be an opportunity to Wenger to get some (normally) inflated transfer fees from the Etihad coffers.
The report reckons that City are keen on prising Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain away from the Emirates, and I know most readers of JustArsenal would bite their hands off and probably drive the players to the airport, but I’m sure wiley old Wenger will make them pay through the nose for two midfielders that have contributed very lttle to the Arsenal cause this season.
So, if you were Arsene Wenger, would you let those two follow Nasri, Clichy, et all up to Manchester if City came up with a reasonable offer?
