There are a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours lately suggesting that Arsene Wenger is keen on bringing the ex-Man United reserve Chicharito back to the Premier League in January. The little Mexican striker was prolific before he arrived at Old Trafford but, despite scoring regularly as a super-sub, Ferguson rarely gave him a run in the starting line-up.
With Arsenal having to do without our excellent young midfield general Francis Coquelin for at least three months, and knowing Arsenal that time period will keep being extended, the January transfer window can not come quick enough for us Gooners.
I am not sure if you have heard this one before Gooners, but some people think that Arsenal could do with signing a world class central midfielder, a player with defensive discipline, high work rate and the power to battle Premier League opponents. Oh I don’t know, maybe someone like Patrick Vieira perhaps. I seem to remember the Gunners doing quite well when he played for us.
First of all, Gooners, I do think that Arsenal should not really have a problem completing this transfer if Arsene Wenger and the board are serious about it and don’t do the usual trick of penny pinching and dithering. But if the Gunners do mess about in the transfer pursuit of Lars Bender, then it could all end in disappointment.
One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours could see the Gunners embroiled in a transfer battle with five other Premier League clubs, according to a report in The Mirror. And that could definitely turn into an interesting fight.
