Could Arteta tempt Aguero to join Arsenal?

Arsenal tipped to make a move for Aguero? Here we go again…


Sergio Aguero will finally part ways with Manchester City after winning an astonishing 13 trophies in his 10-year spell at the club.

Four league titles and EFL trophies, three Community Shield, one FA Cup and a Golden Boot in 2015 will all make his memories at the Etihad even sweet.

Although they are going in separate directions, there is still four competitions to fight for this season. But one question will be constant theme till the time the Argentine’s next club is officially revealed. ‘Where will Sergio Aguero be playing next season?’

Chelsea were seriously interested in him, before he signed for the Manchester club in 2011.  The London club were also linked with him as recently as 2017.

However, they are thought to be not interested in the 32-year-old this summer, even though they are looking to sign a center-forward.

Barcelona and Inter Milan have also been thrown under the huge speculation, but Arsenal have been given a green light by a former Gunner.

Paul Merson, who made 264 appearances for the Gunners between 1985 to 1997, thinks Arsenal would be the perfect club for the 32-year-old.

“Will he stay in England or will his next move be abroad? If he stays in England, I think Arsenal would suit the style he would be looking for. They’d be a good choice,” he told Sky Sports.

“Mikel Arteta was at Manchester City and the way Arsenal play; they get around the box and they do create a lot of opportunities. Arsenal do tick that box for Aguero.”

Aguero has previously hinted he would love to live in London when admiring Chelsea a few years ago.

He said: “I look at players like [Didier] Drogba and [Frank] Lampard and they have been – and still are – the best players in their positions in the world.

“I could really learn from players like that.

“Chelsea are a great club. They have become one of the most feared in Europe over recent years.

“London would be a really amazing city to live in as well – myself and my wife could be really happy there.”

Arsenal fans, however, don’t want the Argentine at the Emirates.

And they are right. The club already have vast potential in the center-forward position with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli and Folarin Balogun in the queue after Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette.

Arsenal cannot keep buying players who are reaching the twilight of their career and convince fans that they are building something for the future.

    Utter nonsense! No more aged crocks wanted . Anyway it will never happen and is just anothr false rumour!

    1. Wyoming says:

      Aguero is not coming here. But I tell you who is. PSG are offering Neymar and Mbappe to Arsenal in a straight swap for Willian and Reiss Nelson.
      The pair say they are coming for the sunshine the clear blue waters of the Thames and the chance to learn from that great footballing brain Stan Kroenke.
      Oh look at the time here it is 2.25 am Thurday the first of April.

        Great idea for a post! Thanks my great American state…

        1. SueP says:

          Will be watching for that😉

    2. lcebox says:

      Exactly what I was thinking.

  2. SueP says:

    I loved watching Aguero. Absolutely one of my favourite players but to contemplate him playing for Arsenal at this stage of his career would be sheer folly

  3. Lenohappy says:

    Aguero is one of my all time great, I love his passion his aggressiveness and his goalscoring. But no it will be a bad business.

    1. Sue says:

      I love his thighs 😂

      There was a time I’d have loved him at the Emirates… not any longer, he’s getting on a bit!!

  4. gotanidea says:

    I think Aguero would play in his home country, because he said so several years ago

  5. Dan says:

    Would take him in a heartbeat but why would he join us?

    1. SueP says:

      I’m curious to know why, Dan?

  6. Shakir says:

    A superb player

  7. Declan says:

    What a very strange article, Yash Bisht. You extol his virtues, ask us if Arteta could persuade him to join us, then slag him off and say no Arsenal fans want him! Very strange………

  8. Sue says:

    OT.. No ESR in the England U21 squad… sigh….

    1. Tas says:

      Yea shame his injured he needs to bounce back from his disappointing debut for U21

      1. Sue says:

        The team has been really poor which is surprising, given the heaps of talent in the squad.
        Gutted he’ll miss Pool…

    2. siamois says:

      From what I’ve read they’ve been very poor and the manager is clueless but his job is safe

      1. Sue says:

        Vert true, Siamois!!! They need one more goal to qualify….
        Guendouzi has scored for France U21s…

          1. Sue says:

            And they’ve scored!!

          2. Sue says:

            I can’t believe it, conceded in stoppage time and are out…. smh…

  9. Danny says:

    Hes at the wrong club if been a Chelsea player would have been a certainty to sign!!

    1. Oracle Collins says:

      very very true 😂😂😂

  10. Matthew says:

    Injury player,already 32&a wicked player

    1. Tas says:

      He will go to Juventus, they seam to do well with W Class older players

  11. Nuru Mohammed says:

    Why always we are busy buying second hand.luis, William,than aguero

  12. Joe Gunner says:

    Why are we always Link with all these old legs, we need to learn from our mistakes, we need Yong lads if truely we are building, for me Aguero have done it all at City, if he has something to offer City would have extend his contract, Folarin deserve new contract, we also have Matineli, I see light at the end of the tunnel

  13. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

    loved him as a player in his prime but a simple NO will suffice

  14. S says:

    Fernandinho has more chance of joining us

  15. wil says:

    If Arteta pulls this one , we will definitely challenge for the league

  16. Wenger91 says:

    He is a top scorer but do we really need him?

    Only if we let go of some of our current strikers (Auba or Laca), that’s the only way. Otherwise, it no senses if we even think of him right now.

    We should only look for a playmaker at this moment!

  17. Sue says:

    OT.. Hat trick of assists for Tesco 👍

  18. John Ibrahim says:

    hes born in 87…shouldnt he be 34 yo this year???
