Why Arsenal will LOSE if Chelsea go for Khedira transfer!!

It was only a few weeks ago that Arsenal fans were hearing some good news on Sami Khedira in various Arsenal transfer rumours around the media. The gist of it was that the Gunners had agreed personal terms with the Germany international and just needed to wrap up the deal with his current club Real Madrid, who know that January is their last chance to get something before the midfielder leaves on a free transfer next summer. All good then.

Well not according to a new report in the Daily Express which claims that Khedira’s La Liga employers are thinking about making a move for the second choice Chelsea keeper Petr Cech who is unhappy about playing second fiddle to Courtois. Madrid also want David De Gea but Man United are not likely to sanction his transfer.

So if Chelsea want to enter the transfer race for Khedira, with Jose Mourinho said to be a big fan as well as loving anything that could hurt Arsene Wenger and the Gunners, then we could be in big trouble. We cannot beat Chelsea on wages and if Madrid would rather deal with them, there is little we can do other than hope Khedira prefers a move to north London. That could happen, of course, as Chelsea’s powerful midfield would make it much harder for the World Cup winner to hold down a regular starting place, but I am not holding my breath.

    more transfer news?….time to counteract this with a random fact…

    When Colombian drug lord Pablo Escolar’s home was raided, the military released the dangerous hippos of his personal zoo, not knowing what to do with them. They now thrive in the Colombian rivers. This makes Colombia have the largest wild hippo population outside of Africa

    We don’t have many big matches left for this calender year now, its’ just Dortmund, Manu, Liverpool and Galatasaray away, also if you want to include Soto’n and Swansea go ahead. So the bad thing is, there is a possibiltity of a good run, and obviously that results in not buying anyone in January.

    can the same logic not be applied to all of our transfer targets ?. if we target somebody and if the bigger teams namely chelsea , man.city and man.utd. want that player then they will get that player yeah .we get whatever is leftover after these bigger teams have had their fill .we get the bits that fall from the top table , sad but very true.we no longer have any clout in the transfer market , we are not taken as seriously as the above named teams anymore.before you all go ozil and alexis ozil was a total panic buy , and what a waste of money might i add ,and alexis was a pure punt , which thankfully for us is working in our favour , thus far !.

      ger burke
      i do get were your coming from but some of what your saying dosnt make sense
      ,,you say we have no clout but yet we got ozil who is thought of as a world class and sanchez who we had to fight off compition to get and is another top name so yeah i get ya but we must still hold some clout in the transfer market

      Ger Burke,
      I agree, if financial fair play means anything then we should be able to now compete with the best, and if not then we were sold a dummy by Wenger (yet again). All I can see is that the line we were fed on FFP meant that Wenger could become one of the highest paid and longest serving managers while being under no pressure to win anything. I think the likes of Fabregas, Van Persie & Co could see their career going no where under Wenger and were forced to jump ship in order to win the major trophies.

    Sami khedira is a very good quality DM no doubt, but i would rather us go for kondogbia! Coyg!

    1. Ks-Gunner says:

      Neither of those two are true Dm’s. A pure Dm is not needed, more height and power is what we need. Kheidira is injurie prone, and Kondogbia is from Monaco lol.

  6. It’s really annoying that we always lose in the battle of signing good players with so called big boys. I don know why we can’t compete with them? Hope we can change it from now on.

    Wenger is Mourinho’s biaaaatch
    it’s been proven time and time again

    1. Ks-Gunner says:

      And so are we fans. :\

  8. Ks-Gunner says:

    Arsenal gives a message away that we are a club where players cant play at ease. We have a stubborn manager who: 1. Overplay players, even the underperformers. 2. Freezes them out. And dont get me started with Arsenal fans having a small club complex which we have created due the years of us not winning anything.

    I personally would never move to Arsenal if i had an another choice. Chelsea compared to Arsenal is a club where the money is right and the players who deserve to play are on the pitch. Simple as that.

      Which player told you that???? Oh, wait, you’re just making shit up again. Shut up

      1. Ks-Gunner says:

        Shut up for what? I thought this was Murica.

        1. Sacrificial_Pizza says:

          Ah an American fan. Surely jumped on the bandwagon. You’re probably a Yankees and Patriots fan as well

    2. sollygunner says:

      ha ks
      your a happy gunner today 🙂

      1. Ks-Gunner says:

        nah bro, just pointing out the obvious gues people tend to wonder about things which should be known to anyone

  9. Greg says:

    Come on gunners! Lets beat hull city on the weekend at the emirates, and get 3 priceless points! Coyg!

  10. Greg says:

    Alexis sanchez for a double against hull city! Coyg!

  11. Sumo says:

    Moaning Myrtle- I am the best.
    Arsene Wenger- You haven’t met Arsenal fans.

  12. ger burke says:

    hey sollygunner , thanks for the comment . i did point out however that ozil was a panic buy and nobody but nobody was targeting him okay . as for alexis then i dont think there were too many bif clubs after him . if i am wrong then please tell em the clubs who were in for him, i also mentioned the clubs that are bigger than us always beat us to targets . now , i was not aware that city , und. and chelsea were in for alexis at the same time as us .my point being that we have to feed , for the mostpart , on the scraps that the three bigger clubs in the premier league leave behind . therefore we have no clout anymore , the emirates is not the place that top top players want to come when they see all players being played out of position .add to that the bigger pay cheques elsewhere and i ask myself why would any world class player want to come to us , unless they are crocked of course as ozil is .real madrid would never have sold their “best number ten ” in the world if there was nothing wrong with him . wenger has yet again bought a dud and ozil will soon be on the huge list of wenger flops .

    1. arsenalfan1 says:

      I think Wenger is the real flop not Ozil. I would like to see us get a proper manager and then let him sort the mess that Wenger has created. I guess we might be pleasantly surprised at some of the players who would come good under a proper manager.

  13. mystic says:

    For god’s sake why do people say this sort of thing – “We cannot beat Chelsea on wages” – the reality is WE CHOOSE NOT TOO.

    Whether the decision is right or wrong, it is extremely misleading and overtly sympathetic towards inaction.
