‘I think Arsenal is a good fit’ Former Gunner talks up Aguero to Arsenal move

Gael Clichy says Sergio Aguero will be a good fit for Arsenal as he draws the curtain on his Manchester City career.

The Argentinean is one of the best strikers the Premier League has ever had and City has decided against giving him a new deal.

He wouldn’t have a shortage of new teams and Arsenal is one of the sides that have been linked with a move for him.

The Gunners have struggled for goals this season after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failed to return to his best form of the last two campaigns.

Mikel Arteta might now look towards a new attacker in the summer and none comes better than Aguero.

The Spaniard has also shown that he isn’t afraid of giving chances to experienced players after giving deals to David Luiz and Willian.

Clichy reckons that the striker will want to remain in the Premier League and says the only question is if he would want to play for another English club.

Clichy told Stadium Astro: ‘I could see him staying in the Premier League, because he will want to climb to third or second [in the all-time top goalscorers charts]. He can get there, for sure. 

‘Does he want that? Ten years with Manchester City is enough, I think he will move where he can enjoy it a bit more. Can he see himself at another English club? That’s the question.

‘He loves the sun. I would like to see him stay [in England] to get to second or third in goals, but I think he will move away from the Premier League. 

‘I think Arsenal is a good fit, in terms of style of play. They play nice football and they create opportunities, but I really doubt he would go there. I’m pretty sure he will go to Spain.’

    No please, thanks. Another Willian!
    We can’t continue to be a fort for spent forces looking for retirement bonuses.
    Aguero”s good years are long behind him, I believe

      ell edu to give Brighton willovk and add money for bissouma, give Pepe to Aston Villa for grealish and add so.e money, give Maitland to palace and add mo ey for zaha, sell lacazette and buy Calvert lewin and get aguero on a one year deal, buy maxi Aron’s and sell bellerin, buy Ricardo Rodriguez and sell kolasinac and guenduzi. Buy odegard and give balogun anew contract…send nketiah on loan to Villa and buy back Martinez. It’s possible if we are ambitious

        @Sekitya.
        Like your thinking.
        Unfortunately no one is leaving the high salary house party to which they have become accustomed.
        If I was in their position I would be holding on to my rock solid contract for dear life too.

        Sekitya, FANTASY FOOTBALL, YOUR SPECIALITY! Be careful never to bump into Mr Reality, as you would get a nasty shock!

    We have a swanky attack.
    Aubameyang Lacazette Pepe Martinelli Saka Nketia Balogun.
    Besides no one will leave as they won’t get any where near their present salary else where.
    At 25/27 by all means. But 32?
    If he came on a 1 year rolling 30k p/w plus assists/goal bonuses contract.
    Yes.
    Otherwise thanks but no thanks.

    He’s 33 in June, has had a succession of injuries recently and would expect a shed load of cash, it would be insane to sign him…

  4. SueP says:

    I read somewhere that Arteta had ruled out being interested in signing Aguero

    Good old CALAMITY CLICHY. Same old nonsense coming from his mouth as came from his boots when he played, so calamitously (hence his nickname), for us.

    But he was right in finally saying he thinks Aguero will go abroad, as that seems far the most likely outcome, given that no successful Prem club would spend huge wages on an old crock with no resale value.

    Mind you, that “old crock with no resale value” does seem to have become OUR trademark recently. Nuff said!
