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.
I know that Arsene Wenger has suggested this weekend that Arsenal are unlikely to be completing any of their transfer business before the World Cup finishes in mid-July, but quite frankly I do not believe him. I am sure that he would love to make at least one of his signings before all the international players head off to Brazil and I think that player will be Lars Bender.
Arsenal fans are well used to suffering, both during the football season and once it is over and the transfer window opens. But I am not sure how much more we can take. After this season has turned from delight to despair, Arsene Wenger needs to move quickly in order to get the fans back on side and the best way to do that would be to make an early signing or two once the transfer window opens. And bringing in Lars Bender would be the perfect way to start.
Bender will not be coming to Arsenal by Ash
It may not be during the transfer window months but that doesn’t mean the transfer news and rumours stop there as the media continues to link Arsenal with players across the globe. One player who was a popular target for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger during the summer just past was German international defensive midfielder Lars Bender.
What chance do we stand in the Champions League? by AH
After beating Fenerbahce 5-0 over the course of two legs in the qualification round of this year’s Uefa Champions League, Arsenal were entered into the competition for another consecutive year under Arsene Wenger and we were placed in pot 1 amongst the big clubs once again.
Today’s transfer topic – Lars Bender by Ash
Today’s transfer topic player is Lars Bender and as Arsenal have been linked with him several times already this summer, I’m sure you know who he is. This rumour comes on the back of a horribly humiliating 3-1 defeat to the hands of Aston Villa, and funnily enough it seems convenient that this player seems to fill all the areas we need to replace, especially after the injury to Arteta.
