There are reports this morning that Arsenal are attempting to hijack Chelsea’s move for the French striker Loic Remy, but we all know that Arsene Wenger had three months to meet the Frenchman’s buy-out clause of just 8.5million but has only now decided to take action after Olivier Giroud was ruled out for the next three months.
You would think that, compared to Arsenal at least, Jose Mourinho would be well pleased with the striking options available to him as manager of Chelsea. With £50 million Fernando Torres, multiple trophy and award winning Samuel Eto’o and the power of Demba Ba, the Blues seem to have an embarrassment of riches. The problem is, they can’t seem to get the ball in the back of the net.
Having lost top spot in the Champions League group with just minutes to spare, Arsenal knew that they were in for a tough team to play in the knockout phase. And having got the hardest team in the play-offs, Chelsea in the Capital One cup, Tottenham in the FA cup and, of course, the group of death in the Champions League, did we really expect anything other than Bayern Munich for the second year running. I think that if UEFA could have managed it, they would have drawn Arsenal against two teams and made us play in blindfolds.
It is no secret that Arsenal have not been the nost attractive club for potential signings to join in recent years. In fact, most of the big name players have been heading in the opposite direction, but that mat be about to change. By breaking the club transfer record, and by so much, Arsenal seem to have set down a marker. If the Gunners play their cards right now, then Arsenal fans could see some of the top names in football turning down other clubs in favour of playing at the Emirates.
