‘Someone with Aguero’s ability would be brilliant for Arsenal’ Parlour talks up transfer

Ray Parlour says he would be happy if Arsenal signs Sergio Aguero and gives the Argentinean a contract for a few years.

Aguero leaves Manchester City at the end of this season after a decade of service for Pep Guardiola’s side.

The striker leaves the champions-elect as one of the greatest to ever play in the Premier League.

His experience and talent is one that Arsenal can make good use of and the Gunners have shown faith in some older players before now.

They signed David Luiz from Chelsea two summers ago and brought in Willian at the start of this season.

Parlour reckons that Arsenal might make good use of Aguero’s talents even though he isn’t getting any younger.

He admits that Mikel Arteta and Edu will decide if they want him or not but says the Argentinean would be an excellent addition to the Gunners’ team.

Asked whether he would welcome a move for Aguero, Parlour told talkSPORT via the Metro: ‘Absolutely, yeah! I would for a couple of years. 

‘Someone with Aguero’s ability would be brilliant for Arsenal. Whether [Alexandre] Lacazette will stay next season I don’t know, I think he might be on his way in the summer. 

‘So Arsenal definitely need a striker. Whether it’s going to be Aguero or will they look a little bit younger and try to develop a player, I don’t know. That’s what Arteta and Edu will have to do. 

‘They’ll have to sit down and say: “Right, where are we going?” They did it with David Luiz, they got him from Chelsea late in his career and maybe they’ll do the same with Aguero.’

    I swear, hope this all thing is just a joke.
    We are not a retirement retreat for over the hill has beens.

    Luiz and Willian are enough.

    Aguero is passed it, injury prone and will be asking for massive last saloon retirement wages like the likes of Willian, Ozil, Auba, Laca etc..

    I don’t care about his big name recognition but he is done. Always injured too.

    Don’t waste more money that we are even struggling to find.

    Happy go lucky Parlour is likeable but lacks brains, as I have known for many years.

    And this is why he is just a regular on a downmarket Talk Sport prog with fellow dullards, instead of being active in the game he once played so well and so honourably. A great bloke; shame about the IQ!

    TO WISH YOUR CLUB TO SIGN BASICALLY, A ONCE GREAT CROCK, IS DAFT BEYOND WORDS. He would hardly ever be fit to play, if we did sign him and it would set us back massively and in any case has not a hope in hell of happening. MERCIFULLY!

    It probably wouldn’t happen but I don’t see what harm it would do on a short term contract especially if Laca moves on ,we have seen Man Utd do it with success the last few years bringing in Ibra and Cavanni at the end of their careers ,the only concern would be his injury record , we can’t predict the future so to say he would’ve on the treatment table all the time is just silly .
    I would be against it if I knew Arteta was going to play Martinelli but it seems he has a problem with the lad and is only given him a few minutes here and there when he is fit and raring to go .

    We’ve turned to be a retirement village. If he’s good enough, why City dont extend his contract? Chasing youngsters and signing old men, I hope it’s a ‘rebuilding’ process

    1. Dan says:

      Because city might feel he’s not good enough anymore to win the title
      But we are not in the title race ?

    Martinelli would lose valuable development time while we are not competing anyway.

    Martinelli exploded on the scene his first year under Emery scoring 10 goals and assisting 3 I believe.

    Arteta won’t give the lad a chance to prove himself, a continued miss by Arteta. Arteta has atrocious man management, and bluffed ownership regarding him developing youth.

  6. RSH says:

    No. Amazing player but have we not learned with Cech, Willian etc. that players come here looking to stay in the EPL and have a nice vacation? They dont have to give their all here because the clubs got low ambitions. Problem is bigger than Aguero. Until Arsenal get serious we’ll keep being seen as a nice last retirement club for EPL players.
