Meet Top Quality DM linked with Arsenal transfer

Well when I say the latest, there have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a move for the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Sven Bender before, but those were in previous transfer windows and nothing ever happened, at least not that we know of.

The 26-year old does seem to fit the Wenger and Arsenal mould though. As well as being a very powerful and fit central midfielder, Bender has very good technical ability both in the air and with his feet. And the German media outlet Bild has reported that this quality player is ready to quit his Bundesliga club in the summer.

The report claims that he is currently earning €3 million a year with Dortmund and he believes that he is worth, and can get, more than that elsewhere. With that equating to little more than £40,000 a week in today’s exchange rate, I am sure that he could.

Bild also claim that Arsenal are one of three Premier League clubs that have made contact over the transfer, the others being Liverpool and Southampton, and if that is true then it does back up the theory that Wenger is still looking for a defensive midfielder despite the emergence and form of Francis Coquelin.

However, Sven is a very defensively minded player, highlighted by his five goals in 237 club games, as opposed to the more all round type like Morgan Schneiderlin, so is he really what the Gunners need?

  1. What is his transfer fee value? For not more than 15 million pounds I could see it happening. I don’t see Arsenal spending much more than that on a CDM.

    1. Kondogbia is wanted by inter, madrid, milan and now spurs i don’t see arsenal getting themselves into a bidding war. Lars bender is perfect, he’s a much better version of arteta(a tough tackler and a deep lying playmaker).

  2. OT
    Germany defender Benedikt Howedes, 27, says he rejected a transfer to Arsenal this summer to stay with Schalke.

    And this tells us that you have to have 3 parties to agree a transfer. it is like a sale / services agreemeent. the seller has to agree that the worker renders services fromnow on elsewhere. The worker has to agree he wants to with his new employer. The worker has to agree to go, and then the sseller and buyer have to agree on a Price.

    That BS of not having any toher way because Chelsea offered X BS if the player wants to earn less money and play for a team he likes. HE WILL

    1. You are right about the 3 main areas of agreement needed.

      But transfers can also include so many more complicating factors when you consider the influence of managers, wives, other family members, other players – and let us not forget the media. Even politics can get into the process. Any potential transfer can easily become a real cluster-x#@k.

  3. Don’t want Sven he’s genuinely injury prone would rather have his brother Lars. But if Sven costs like £10m and has no problem playing second fiddle to Le coq then he maybe sounds like a viable target

  4. I don’t normally do this stuff but I just read this

    Arsenal have tabled a £28.5m bid for Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho – but might need £8.5m in add-ons to trigger his release clause.

    It’s from the sun so not believable But what if this once it’s true

    1. It’s 99% not true wenger is no idiot and carvalho is worth maybe half that amount there are 10 other DM’s available who are better and cheaper.

    2. 99.99% of all transfer rumors are nonsense – that includes “reliable” sources. When it is offered from a less-than-reliable source the nonsense rating goes up to 99.999999999%.

    3. I did say it’s not believable I’m just saying what if this is the one they actually get right.

      1. The Articles do sometimes put forward hypothetical questions or do imply with acquiring a hypothetical new signing so it is only natural for us to give hypothetical answers, and if people cant tell the difference from a hypothetical scenariio to a clear cut one well then thats their problem.

        Make matters worse you even spelled out how you didnt believe it before entertaining the author and his possible scenario…

  5. We’ve been signings players that has been mentioned very rarely in media. I have a good feeling about Vidal and Cech. Morgan, JM seems to be off.

  6. I’d like Carvalho, but not for more than 20million. He has potential to be like Vierra. If we sign him now, with the remaining two years in Wenger’s contract, he could be moulded into a Top Class DM. But 37million is too much. Kondogbia is good, but he really lacks game-reading and interception. Schneiderlin is still my best option except for the fact that he would be expecting Le Coq to be his understudy and that wont be fair on Coquelin who was assured a prominent role before signing a new contract.
