Arsenal target the WRONG player from EPL rival?

If you saw the recent comments from the Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin then you will know that the Spaniard is right on track with the recent thoughts of Arsene Wenger when it comes to the need for some more signings in the January transfer window.

If you asked the average Arsenal fan, however, then you would soon realise that Bellerin and his boss are on their own. In fact even Wenger has been sounding like he is ready to spend some money to cope with the lengthy Arsenal injury list.

So assuming that Wenger will use the transfer window, the next question is which position or positions are most in need of cover and competition and which are the players we want to bring in. Your first thought will probably not be an attacking midfielder, but that is what the latest Arsenal transfer rumour on Metro says the boss is looking at.

Before Jamie Vardy went on his goal spree it was another Leicester City player Riyad Mahrez that was getting all the plaudits and his figures of six assists and seven goals in the league shows that he has been a real star for the Foxes and why Wenger is said to be looking to sign him.

But would it not make more sense for Arsenal to be looking at Vardy?

    There are only 5 certainties in life:



    Ozil will get an assist (even if it means setting himself up)

    Muffdiver is currently knee deep in muff

    Sanchez will just grow another hamstring by next weekend

    Therefore: Vardy or Mahrez not needed

    Yea!…. If mahrez is what u mean by the wrong player, we’d definitely go for him…… squawka said he’s one of the premier Leagues best …..yes according to squawka .. not what we see on the pitch for ourselves….not the goal spree…not the broken records….


    Metro knows better &
    Squawka knows best .. L()L

    If i had to choose between the two,
    I would pick Mahrez all day long,
    He is technically a better player than vardy,
    as well as being 4 years younger.

      and he’s algerian………. Algeria will bLeed red! L()L


      Our coast needs enlargement!

    Afraid Vardy wouldn’t fit in Arsene’s plan…no flicks or headers, too much pace & scores on highly consistent basis!

    1. SoOpa AeoN says:

      yea cuz we are surrounded by slow players right?……. Dare to play a front three of theo , vardy and sanchez and see if pace could be measured!

    What is it with Wenger just before every Transfer Window he comes up with I nearly signed
    this player or that player. Today he comes up with I nearly signed .Kingsely Coman
    Who cares because you didn’t. Nearly Never won the race. Just sign a few Top class players
    or go and let someone else have a go.

    Has wenger yet decided to give up in being deluded?
