Arsenal target Liverpool striker to join Wilshere on injury list?

With the terrible record that Arsenal have had with various injury problems over the last few years, even this season after Arsene Wenger appointed two key fitness and medical experts to solve the problem, you would think perhaps that the club would try to avoid bringing in any more players that are injury prone.

So I was stunned to see that Arsenal is being reported by the Daily Mail as the club that is favourite to seal the transfer of the Liverpool and England international striker Daniel Sturridge in the summer. The 26-year old is apparently not happy with the way that his current club have dealt with his injury problems and the criticism he has received about his attitude during these numerous and persistent problems.

Sturridge is certainly a top quality striker, as Liverpool’s win percentage going up 15 percent with him on the pitch proves. And Arsenal’s recent troubles have highlighted once again to us fans the need for more fire power. But have we learned nothing from the situation with players like Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby? Both of those are top quality players as well but they cannot help us much when they are in the treatment room.

Even if Sturridge was available on the cheap, which is pretty likely considering his injury record, can Arsenal really afford to take the risk of having another member of the squad spending more time in the treatment room than on the pitch?

  1. Is he better than Theo = yes
    Is he better than Welbz = yes
    Is he better than OG = yes
    Is he injured more times than OG, Theo, and Welbz = yes

    This summer will even be harder to sign a WC striker or any top class player infact with the all the EPL clubs getting a good chuck plus City, United, Lpool and Chelsea looking to revamp there squads. Of course there is also now the new threat from the China splashing mad cash around for players.

  2. For F**k sake……everyone knows Sturridge is a frequent in the physioroom …..and isn’t so much in a different situation from wilshere

    but to say he’s an Arsenal target (as per ur title) is insane and an insult to the deductive reasoning of a common man

    Looks like u need a pack of ice-blocks pressed upon ur head for hours

  3. The recent spate of signings has started to
    attract attention in Britain.
    Asked if the Premier League should be
    concerned about the CSL’s spending power,
    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger replied: “Yes, of
    “China looks to have the financial power to
    move the whole league of Europe to China.”
    However, he wondered whether CSL clubs
    would continue to pay out huge sums of
    money on transfer fees.
    “Will they sustain their desire to do it?” he
    asked. “Let’s remember, Japan started to do
    it a few years ago but slowed down.
    “I don’t know how deep the desire in China
    is. If it is a very strong political desire, we
    should worry.”

    Hehe……Now wenger is worried, the chinese should put in a bid for him(wenger) as well…… Something too sweet for Kroenke to ignore

    isn’t it all bout the Money??????

  4. Arsenal must be earning a good profit through their insurance, on injured player’s.
    which would explain why the greedy xxxx’s want to sign another injury prone player! ?

    At least he will blend in well,
    with the rest of our English (rotten to the) Core.

    1. The club is upset that teams like Man City, Lpool, Man U, Chelsea and the likes are leading the charts in the injury league his season so they want to strengthen and take back our spot by singing Sturridge .

  5. and that keeps me wondering


    British Core L()L
