The situations of Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge and our own Theo Walcott are very similar. They are both unsettled at their present clubs seemingly because they are both being used as wingers but are both adamant that they have a godgiven right to be deployed as an out-and-out striker.
Arsenal to swap Bendtner for Lewandowski-Yes Please! by BA
Robert Lewandowski has just scored 30 goals from 46 appearances in all competitions this season. He led his side, Borussia Dortmund, to an historic league and cup double, scoring a hat-trick against Bayern Munich in the cup final. He was also voted player of the year in the German Bundesliga.
It is definitely one of the more outlandish Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds today, but if it is true it would seem to be an excellent deal for Arsene Wenger right now.
I guess everyone has seen the yearly rumours linking Arsene Wenger with a move to Real Madrid, after it has been revealed that Jose Mourinho is not getting on very well with his players, and he was even (like Wenger) abused by the Real Madrid fans despite his team being five points clear of Barcelona in La Liga.
Reports are coming in that the Italian giants Juventus are still intending to make a big bid to sign Theo Walcott, and are prepared to offer the Serbian International Milos Krasic as part exchange on the deal.
The Gunners’ leading light Robin Van Persie has, as expected, been subject to the majority of attention in regards to his contract which expires at the end of next season. But he is not the only Arsenal player being linked with a move away from the Emirates.
Of all the Arsenal transfer rumours I have heard so far this year, this must surely count as one of the best, in fact if I was Arsene Wenger I would immediately fly out to the Ukraine and get this deal done and dusted quickly.
The QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt was the undisputed star at Loftus Road last season and was voted Championship Player Of The Year, and Neil Warnock is well aware that he will have trouble keeping Taarabt out of the clutches of a top club, and according to the Star, Arsenal are one of those interested.
