There have been some ridiculous things said about Gonzalo Higuain, one of the strikers that has been the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours this summer, by the president of his Serie A club Napoli. Aurelio De Laurentiis does not seem to be able to help himself either, as he is in the papers again this week saying that he will not allow Higuain to leave for any less than his wild valuation of something like £65 million.
The striker situation at Arsenal has already been the matter of quite a bit of debate, for us fans and for those paid to talk about football and the Premier League. The problem is certainly not of the numerical variety, because even if Joel Campbell joins Lukas Podolski out the Emirates exit door, we would still have plenty of options.
One of the biggest things that Arsenal fans learned from the Copa America final last night, when Chile took Argentina to extra time and then a penalty shoot out that they won, was how cool our striker Alexis Sanchez is under pressure.
Obviously most of the Arsenal transfer rumours this morning are talking about Arturo Vidal’s imminent arrival at the club, with many publications saying that it is a done deal. Now that Morgan Schneiderlin is going to Man United it is looking more likely that Vidal is heading our way.
Cazorla in his own words. By Galen
Another boring day in the window. I have visited most Arsenal forums today and about 80% of fans don’t want Pipita. I am struggling to understand why? It is not every day that a world class striker becomes available and fans are saying ‘no we don’t want this’. Its like a kid in the sweet shop with loads of options to choose from!
So I guess that the talks between Arsenal and the representatives of one of our top transfer targets of the summer have been pretty positive, as they are to be followed by a transfer bid of around £30 million for Gonzalo Higuain, according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumour being reported by the Daily Star.
There are better options than Benzema for Arsenal by Galen
I am against Arsenal going after Benzema as it would depend on if Madrid get Aguero. Man City are no babies and can’t be bullied by Madrid. They have the finance available to make Aguero as rich as Messi. You don’t want a deal that will be happening on the 31st of August at Midnight. lets look at some options that we could get instead…..
