They say that there is no such thing as bad publicity and so perhaps the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere should just be glad that he is being talked about. At least he has not been forgotten and this is further evidence that the young midfielder is still being seen as one of the best hopes for the future of his club and country.
I blame Arsene Wenger for all this to be honest. If the Arsenal manager was a bit less like a poker player on his last hand, all in, and with his house and car riding on the result, or if he had actually done a bit more of what the football media had been expecting, then they would not have to start grasping at straws quite so desperately.
Arsene Wenger has repeatedly stated that he will only buy players that could seriously improve the Arsenal team and at least 80% of the fans believe that he should be only looking for Defensive midfielders and World-Class strikers but what if a super attacking midfielder should become available? Wenger is well-known for stacking his midfield with stars, and with Rosicky, Arteta and Cazorla approaching their twilight years he could easily make room for one more young superstar.
There is a new Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds and it is safe to say that nobody saw this one coming. This time is not about a potential signing for the Gunners, but about another club showing interest in one of our players. No surprise there, but the club is the German and European champions Bayern Munich and the player is our 33-year old midfielder Tomas Rosicky.
The Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal for the last few days, with reports that the Gunners have offered 30 million euros PLUS our German striker Lukas Podolski to the Bundesliga club!
Why signing Draxler would be brilliant by KJ
Arsenal have just been linked with an audacious £40 million move for Schalke wunderkind Julian Draxler. He’s the second youngest player to have been fielded in the Bundesliga and is rapidly rising as one of the best young talents in Europe.
I do not think that there is any doubt whatsoever that Arsenal fans, players and staff would all agree that Robert Lewandowski would be a fantastic signing for the club this summer. However, with clubs like Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Real Madrid supposedly interested in the striker, it seems more like a dream than a possibility.
It will not be easy for Arsenal to beat the competition for the signature of the Polish international striker Robert Lewandowski, but if Arsene Wenger and the officials at the club could persuade the 24-year old to spearhead the Gunners’ quest for glory, it would be a massively bold statement of intent. The chances of being able to do it, after Borussia Dortmund dug their heels in and refused to sell to their German Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich, are as good as they are ever going to get, so Wenger must make the attempt now.
