Why Arsenal Should NOT Move For This Midfielder!

In the midst of all the talk about a potential move for Victor Wanyama, Arsenal are also being linked to another bright young defensive midfielder, Inter Milan’s Marcelo Brozovic, who the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is said to have been scouting for quite some time now.

According to reports from the Daily Express and the Metro, Arsenal have already made contact with the Italian side in regards to the transfer of the young Croatian midfielder. The reports further go on to suggest that the Inter boss Roberto Mancini is willing to let him go in January for a fee of around £10 million, which Arsenal could easily afford without needing to win the jackpot on some online casinos!

Now the news can be considered as fairly reliable considering that the source of the news in Italy is Tuttomercatoweb, which is usually reliable. One factor that supports the story is that Roberto Mancini is willing to let him go in January, with the Gunners in desperate need for midfield reinforcements in the wake of long-term injuries to Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla, with fellow midfielders Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere yet to feature this season.

But apart from being available in January, Brozovic might not have much to offer to Arsenal. Firstly, this is a player who has struggled to get into the Inter Milan team and has only made 13 appearances for the Nerazzuri this season, which is why Mancini is willing to let him go. In addition to not being an established name, there may also be complications in a potential deal as the 23-year-old is on loan at Inter, with his parent club being Dinamo Zagreb.

So if you’d ask me, it really isn’t worth Arsenal taking the gamble. We are better off trying everything to sign Wanyama in January, and if not, in the summer. Besides, Coquelin will be back in February and Flamini isn’t doing a bad job in the meantime. Should we have more injuries, Wenger can even move Koscielny to holding midfield and bring in Gabriel to partner Mertesacker at the back..

    Let’s just get Wanyama and stop bargain shopping. He has done well in whatever league/team he has featured in so far. We can’t wrong with him.

    Walcott Ozil Sanchez
    Cazorla Wanyama
    Monreal Koscielny Gabriel Bellerin

    Opinions divided. What do you think? Thumb up 9 Thumb down 19

    We should just take Wanyama on loan for the rest of the season. He won’t play once coquelin is back anyways

    Your assessment of brozovic is quite similar to my own.

    However your opinion that we could move Koscielny out of defense and into DM is absurd, if needs must Gabriel can do that job, but you cannot remove our best cb out of defense

    You have to wonder what Flamini has to do to do a good job. Arsenal have never lost an EPL game at home when he’s played. That’s one hell of a record for a player who a ton of you would shove out the door and replace with a potential unknown. Even if he had played in the EPL the rest of the Arsenal players haven’t played with him so that is a huge risk during a settling in/getting to know each other period.

    Ok available targets:
    Rabiot – Young highly rated, wants to come
    Carvalho – Same as above though no UCL ties and ready for the prem in stature!
    Wanyama – All of the above and already doing good in the prem

    Comes down to price and how much wenger wants them… my honest opinion is W.Carvalho as he can slot in now and settle to the club for the next 6months for next season but will get quite a few games until then so dont have to rush Coq back, plus, he can play in 2/3 positions incl CB, likes arsenal as a club and could develop into something special under Wenger.

      He has a buyout clause also so go pay the £28m or €35m and get it over with. Would love him at the club no doubt. Carvalho/Coquelin/Ramsey/Santi/Wilshere for them 2spots maybe Flamini kept around!!

    This article is pointless and whatever maybe the reason Arsenal have to go in for Wanyama due to his physical presence and the way it is hard to knock him off the ball plus Barca hate playing against tougher opposition.

    Granit Xhaka is the answer. Questions are, does Wenger rates him highly enough, would BMG want to let him go and are their demands sufficient to Arsene’s liking?

    Wouldn’t mind bringing in Wanyama, but should not be a priority imo
