There was a lot of Arsenal rumours saying that Manchester City would be prepared to give us Sergio Aguero as part of a deal that took Alexis Sanchez to the Etihad Stadium, but now that the Gunners have secured the French hitman Alexandre lacazette that is no longer a possibility although there were many Arsenal fans that would have welcomed the exchange.
The big transfer rumour of yesterday was that Man United have reportedly beaten Chelsea to the signing of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, and with Diego Costa expected to leave the Bridge it has left Antonio Conte in a strikerless situation and may now turn his attention to Alexis.
Wenger may not like the idea of the Chilean superstar moving to a rival, but the fact is that we could use this to our advantage and ask for our old captain Cesc Fabregas as part of the deal. Cesc did not start many games under Conte last season but performed spectacularly when called upon and may be feeling frustrated that he is no longer an automatic starter at the Blues but would be certain to play regularly back at Arsenal.
Arsenal’s one biggest problem over the last two seasons is that we have missed our little Spaniard Santi Cazorla as our engine room in midfield, and we know that Fabregas could easily fill his shoes. We desperately need someone in that position, and now that we have Lacazette we won’t miss Alexis so much.
Would you be happy for us to get Fabregas as part of a swap deal?
