Wijnaldum is yet another Arsenal target that we can cross off our wishlist

There have been many rumours this month that the PSG midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has not settled in Paris and is ready to return to the Premier League after just six months at the French giants, most of which has been spent in the treatment room.

Arsenal have been hotly linked to take him to the Emirates to reinforce obvious weaknesses in the centre of the park, with a report in the Mail even suggesting that Wijnaldum would like to move to the Gunners.

But it appears that those rumours are completely wide of the mark, as Wijnaldum has now spoken to PSG’s twitch channel yesterday discussing his short time at the Parc De Princes. He said: “My integration went well. I arrived at a new club, a new league.

“I learn every day from my teammates and the staff. They all helped me a lot to fit in.

“We get to know each other a little more every day. I’m learning French too, it’s important for my integration.”

Reading this it seems abundantly clear that there is no hint of his being unhappy or wishing to leave, and he has been making the best use of his time while he has been out injured.

I think that this is yet another reported Arsenal “target” that we can cross off our wish list.

Five days to go and the clock is ticking….

  1. Not bidding for, Guimaraes is bonkers, but now we are linked with Diaz who Gerrard doesnt even rate. Chasing Melo who cant get in Juve side. Chasing Vlah who said from day 1, not interested in our out of europe mid table side. Not bidding for David or DCL. Cant even sign a yank keeper. Short of midfielders but loan Niles and open to offers for Elneny before signing replacements. What a mess

  2. Finally, it has dawned on some fans, just how important that top four spot really was / is to our club… a position so derided by those who thought it wasn’t good enough, despite the fact that there are clubs with limitless coffers.

    It’s also very plain to see, that all the deadwood, dross and mentally frail players we had that MA inherited, were achieving something that has eluded us for the last few years.

    Yet still, we get this nonsense that MA cannot be judged until all these players have gone – what a load of BS.

    MA has come out and said he will only sign players that will improve his squad… something else that AW was derided for.

    We have been dismissed, as a club, by players who we have wanted to sign, as not good enough… now, who’s fault is that?

    1. Ken, Arsenal could finish 10th and these fans will continue to make excuses for Arteta. It will be Emery’s fault, Wengers fault, the board didn’t back Arteta, he hasn’t got rid of the deadwood yet, he hasn’t got a dominant CF, no DM, he has the youngest squad in the PL, there’s clear improvement, Klopp won nothing for 5 years…

    2. Not only that Ken but according to some fans,MA has as much pull as a manager as AW,just because Saka, ESR signed extensions.

      1. Yep, Kev82 and Siamois, that’s EXACTLY how I see it.

        The Burnley game and this transfer window has swung it for me (I hope I’m wrong) and I think the club is mad to be even considering a new contract for MA – the sickening thing is I like the man and bear no ill feeling to him, but the club comes before anyone and the damage being done to the fabric of The Arsenal is clear, as players don’t want to play for us, don’t want to sign for us and are leaving for pastures new.
        What a complete shambles.

        1. If reports are true Ken and he has a new contract offer on the table it’s damn well insulting! Breaking unwanted records galore and he’s getting rewarded for it? It could only happen at Arsenal.

          1. Your so right and yet we have fans saying that we are wrong to criticise and trust the process.
            I believe we have now sent three players out on loan this window, “sold” Chambers to villa, have two other players refusing to sign new contracts, two players being ignored for disciplinary reasons, a further four players already into extended loan deals and not ONE player signed to replace ANY of the above!!
            I probably have missed some out, such is the crazy situation and it seems Elneny, just awarded MOM in a African cup game, is also deemed not good enough by some fans!!!

            We need a minimum of three class signings, just to fill the void the above has created and have less than a week to do it.
            What on earth is Edu doing?!?!?
