Arsenal’s GREEN LIGHT to beat Man Utd to Bayern star’s transfer

If Arsene Wenger was looking for some encouragement about his transfer plans for Arsenal as we draw ever close to the opening of the winter transfer window which is not just over a month away, the the latest Arsenal transfer rumour reported by Metro should be just whgat the doctor ordered. of Alaba but for most of the week

Whether or not the player in question, the Bayern Munich and Austrian international star David Alaba, is ready to leave his current club just yet is another matter, although the report does suggest that the versatile 24-year old is prepared to leave the German champions as they continue to struggle since Carlo Ancelotti took over as manager from Pep Guardiola in the summer.

Guardiola’s new club Man City are one of those being linked with the possible transfer of Alaba but for most of the week the football press have been talking about another of our Premier League rivals Man United are the most likely to sign him, until this latest twist to the transfer tale emerged.

Apparently the Austrian, who can operate as a defensive midfielder as well as in his more usual left back role, would actually prefer to join Arsenal. One reason for this is his preference to relocate to London but perhaps the most important is the news that he grew up supporting the Gunners.

So with this to encourage him do you think Wenger will bid for this toplclass player in January?

    Is wenger’s over cautious attitude hurting our team? we have speed and technicality but we play a slow build up often from the back giving teams time to set up a wall! With players like sanchez/walcott/ox/ozil/ we should be playing a quick tempo, balls over the top, blitz style until we’ve secured a comfortable scoreline. Only then should we be taking off 1 or 2 offensive players to secure a WIN. Isn’t wenger nullifying our strength by playing this slow tempo, slow build up tactic that requires barcelona-eque technicality, vision and creativity?

    We have no Rakitic, Iniesta, Busquets or Messi so why try to play a style like that when you don’t have the players that could employ this tactic??

    Alaba is a fire engine! Young, versatile and a winner… Alaba on the left Bellerin on the right, in SA we say “Abashwe!” meaning “they [opponents] will die! “

    Manchester United even without a champions league is an attractive club than arsenal. Sad truth.

      Speaking of Man Utd, I keep seeing articles about them getting Griezmann next summer. I don’t care if he’s holding up a Man U shirt or says he wants to play with Pogba at club level. If he’s available Wenger should go all out for his signature.

  4. Juhi McLovin says:

    Any actual truth to this? Because Alaba is one of the best left backs in the world.

    If there’s even 1% chance for him to leave in January (or next summer for that matter), we MUST get him. No if’s or but’s.

    Monreal is 30 and Gibbs is 27, I’d be okay with 1 of them giving way for Alaba. It seems like Alaba has been around for ages but he’s still young, would be great to have him and Bellerin as our fullbacks for years to come.

      We need to keep Gibbs. I’d be devastated to lose him. Great servant to the club.

  6. Jansen says:

    Wenger will not buy 1 single player this winter and not 1 single starter next summer.

    1. citrenoogeht says:

      I think that Lucas Pirez was a bit of a panic buy which with hindsight Wenger may now regret. He must realise that in Lucas Pirez, he doesn’t have the ‘world class striker’ that is necessary to take us to the next level. He already has the likes of Giroud and Pirez to keep happy and to add to that Welbeck is due to return very soon. The problem is none of them are the quality that we really need i.e A Lacazette, Aubamayang, Icardi etc. if Wenger goes out and buys a striker he is going to risk upsetting the dressing room. He’s snookered himself!
