Ian Wright is such an Arsenal fan that it often interferes with his ability to be impartial in his role as a TV pundit and football journalist, but then again the same can be said of most of the former footballers working on the other side of the game these days and with all the anti-Arsenal bias, Wright at least helps to keep some balance.
He is not shy about giving his opinion the failings of the club, manager and players either. Where he is best qualified to give that opinion is clearly on the attacking side of things as he was the club’s all time top scorer until a certain Monsieur Henry came along.
So I definitely think it is worth listening to Wrighty’s opinion on the possible transfer of Raheem Sterling from Liverpool, which he gave during an end of the season review for Breathe Sport and you can see on youtube.
The gist of it is that he thinks it would be a great move for the Gunners as he really rates the talent of the young England forward. He also believes that the competition it would provide to some of the current Arsenal stars would be good for them and also for the club on the whole.
He said, “I think he’d give Santi Cazorla a run for his money, I think he’d give Ramsey a run and I think he’d give Theo Walcott a run. You want that calibre of player in your team so they would then have to raise their standard of play as well.”
So do you think that Wenger should hit Liverpool with a serious offer?
