Is Lescott a good option for Arsenal? by Ash
It is widely reported that the Arsenal board are going to hand Arsene Wenger a significant amount of money to spend in the transfer market this summer. The amount usually suggested is around £70 million, but there has been talk that this amount will be reduced if the Gunners do not finish in the top four because of the loss of revenue from the Champions League.
Even if Theo Walcott does not play as the central striker for Arsenal against Manchester City today, a lot of the expectation for scoring goals will be on his young shoulders. With the jury still out on whether he can make it as an out and out front man for the Gunners, people will be watching him closely today to see how he fares against the better teams in the Premier league.
Gael Clichy spent eight seasons at Arsenal under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger before moving to Manchester City last July. He does not occupy the same pantomime villain role as Samir Nasri or Ashley Cole, however, because he is not gloating and disrespectful like those two. He seems to appreciate what Arsenal and Wenger did for him and his career.
