Why letting this striker leave would HELP Arsenal

Now that Arsenal have Olivier Giroud back in the first team after his freak tibia injury at the start of the season, and with Theo Walcott back in training and on the bench for the away game at Anfield, the attacking side of the Arsenal squad is the one thing that Arsene Wenger does not have to worry about.

There have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking Wenger with various strikers in the January transfer window, but unless the boss was telling porkies when he said recently that Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell would be styaying and playing, I cannot see the need for us to strengthen in that area.

On the contrary, I think Arsenal should seriously consider saying yes to the request of Premier League Crystal Palace, as they want to take our young French forward Yaya Sanogo on loan until the end of the season, according to a Daily Mail report.

Neil Warnock’s team are only above the relegation places on goal difference but they have been a bit unlucky. The manager is keen to bring in at least one striker in January and I think we should let Sanogo be the one. Let’s be honest and admit that he is not going to get much football for us unless our injury crisis deepens to utter disaster and the youngster needs to play.

Not only will regular EPL games be really good for him, but Sanogo could help Palace to take some valuable points off our rivals, just as Chelsea’s loanees have done in recent seasons. If Wenger gets the loan deal done quickly enough, Sanogo could be lining up at home for Palace against the spuds on January 10th. And he could have more effect on our season in that one game than he could by staying at the Emirates for six months. What do you think Gooners?

  1. Let sanogo go loan or sell him his not arsenal quality we need to buy world class and re-establish our selves as part of europe elite

  2. An EPL club wants Sanogo 🙂
    Bayern M want Diaby and
    Flamini for Dante + Martinez.
    Real Madrid want Mertesacker for
    Varane, Campbell for Ronaldo
    + Ryo in a swap deal with Bale.
    Juve want Arteta for Pogba.
    PSG want Wellbeck for Cavani.
    City want Podolski for Aguero.
    Wenger says he will instead offer Palace
    900 million quid for the reurn of Chamakh
    and have offered Bastia 1.5 billion quid
    for the return of Squidlacci.

  3. Referring to his transfer talk to Arsenal, Winston Reid told the Daily Mirror:

    “It doesn’t really affect me. It is just one of those things that has been going on in the background.
    “I know where I am and just get on with it and I have always given 100 per cent for this club for as long as I have been here and I will continue to do that. It is not something that bothers me, it is just part of being a footballer and it is no big drama.”

    So, if the above quote is correct, we are in for Reid. Not too bad a prospect for me.

  4. Letting him go to an EPL team would mean he will not only develop in this league but be close enough to see his progression.
    If Jan Allows this, lets hope it allows the possibility for some new additions…but I am not going to expect the Top Quality Signings most expect. They take time to smoke out.

      1. Trust me, if we get Winston f’n Reid, we will have another deadwood in our hands, still here wishing for a Mats Hummels type of defender.

        With only 2 CB’s in our squad, another one being The Big Sack, Arsenal fans have been driven to the brink of desperation.

  5. agree campbell should be the one to go loan but would keep sonogo, when he plays he adds something to arsenal team

  6. Loan Sanogo??? Sell the M.F**ker…. We need worldclass strikers,midfielders and defenders to compete with Europe Elites… Not average player like Sanogo or under-performing players like Flamini,Whilsher,BFG,Monreal and injure-prone players lik d English players in general… We need players who r fighters

  7. You want Mr Wenger to send Joel Campbell on loan, let look at the facts Campbell has been on three consecutive loan spells at Lorient,Real Betis and Olympiacos in his five year contract, if Campbell went on loan at crystal palace and played well, at the end of the season he may decide to listen to offers and not extent his contract we us. Mr Wenger have to give Campbell a run in the team this season there is no other options, the best way to do that is to rotate Chamberlain and Campbell.

    I also disagree with Mr Wenger decision to spent £16 million on Welbeck when you have Podolski, Sanchez, Campbell and Sanogo who could play that position.

  8. In all honesty, instead of spending £16 million on Welbeck, we should have spent a bit more and got a top striker like Cavani, Martinez, Huntelaar, Higuain, or even Reus.

    Welbeck may become another Ian Wright in 2-3 years but now adds very little as we have Giroud, Sanchez, Podolski, Campbell, Walcott

    Sanogo should go on loan or reserve team.

  9. Sanogo,Diaby,…. Unplaying players like Campbell and Podolsky,Rosicky,Gnaby… Injury-Prone Walcott,Chamerlain,Whilsere,Gibbs, evn Ramzy and Monreal…. I jst can’t comprehend some things abt these players…. Let Sanogo go completely out..evn my grandma whenever he watches sanogo play do ask why he’s always falling down easily??

  10. Crystal Palace do not want Sanogo….he’s too awful…they have Campbell and gayle who are all better…he’s staying with us.
