The Spanish striker Michu has had his rapid rise to stardom underlined with an international call-up to Spain, and there transfer rumours linking him with a possible move to Arsenal in January, but I nearly choked on my cornflakes when I saw the price tag being talked about as being around the £30 million mark.
As a few already wrote in their comments, last year’s home game against Swansea was the low point of the season for Arsenal. Not only did they defeat us on our turf, they defeated us at our own game too. We looked quite useless in that game, to tell you the truth. They were the surprise of the season and they managed not only to retain all of their main players (like our supposed target Michu), but also add new ones (Bony). They are, by all means, a worthy adversary, one not be taken lightly.

So here we are, 10 days left until the close of the transfer window and a new mammoth list of rumours linking us with players who in my eyes we will not get; Pogba, Fellaini, Michu, Guaita, Cabaye, Richards, Kondogbia, Lamela
Arsene says ”Who?” Let’s give him some help. by Neil
After the Arsenal vs. Villa debacle, of which I will not speak, it became clear to me that our manager needs some help. He said, and I quote ”Everyone keeps telling me to buy, but who..that is the question?”
As Arsene Wenger has seen all his main transfer targets fall by the wayside, it seems that Arsenal will have no choice but to meet Swansea’s valuation of £25m for their Spanish striker Michu after just one good season in the Premiership.
Laudrup waves away Arsenal interest by Ash

Dzeko and Michu by Stefan
Yesterday morning Arsenal fans were greeted with fresh hope of signing a decent striker or two this summer. They are no Luis Suarez, but we have been linked with Swansea City’s Michu and Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko. I was getting worried when I faced up to the prospect of having Olivier Giroud, Yaya Sanogo, Nicklas Bendtner and Park Chu Young as our strike force for next season. Most of the four are target men type strikers too which worried me more.
