Arsenal set to splash the cash on Flamini!!!

Posted on August 23, 2013 by Random Spurs Supporter

Don’t panic just yet all you Arsenal fans, as Wenger said there is still ten days of the transfer window left to go and it is not a sprint. Forget the fact that most of the top players will have already been snapped up and those that are  available might only be players surplus to requirements at their current clubs.

In order to make a real statement of intent it is rumoured that their old player Mathieu Flamini is training with them and if he shows a decent fitness level it looks as though he will be snapped up and offered a contract, let’s not forget he is only 29yrs of age and has been released by A C Milan on a free. If he is not of the standard needed at Milan should he be considered good enough for Arsenal?

At a time when Arsenal supporters are crying out for the club to make their mark in the transfer market all the talk is of Flamini joining on a free, Podolski going on loan to Schalke and a possible £80m spend on Benzema and Di Maria from Madrid. A month ago several other stars were said to be in their sights and supporters accepted it as fact, now it is clear it was all pie in the sky. So as to calm the growing anger another two stars having been thrown into the equation but again it is unlikely that they will be appearing in that part of North London.

Just who at Arsenal is responsible for choosing transfer targets? already Chamakh and Gervinho have been ditched along with £52k pw Bendtner, Santos, Denilson, Squillacci and a number of others, other than Cazorla and Arteta, who were both established and no brainers, who was the last decent signing made by the club? Podolski seems to be the next on his way out, he has been at the club for about five minutes and another bought for big money.

One or both of Di Maria and Benzema might well be made available by Madrid once Bale has signed, but is there any real chance of either heading to Arsenal? they can offer the wages but can they offer anywhere near the level of ambition of a Madrid player, clearly not.

Wenger will probably spend his customary £50m on two or three players with Cabaye highly likely to be one of them at much nearer the £20m demanded by Newcastle, Flamini on a free a certainty, beyond those two I have no idea as it seems certain that Swansea will refuse to do business at this late stage.

I have no affection whatsoever for Arsenal but I am still bemused by their transfer activity, they seem to be ditching offensive players left right and centre and then look to add still more, correct me if I am wrong but most supporters are more concerned with their defensive frailties as well as their lack of defensive midfield players, Arsenal seem to have a terrible lack of defensive depth and yet still refuse to address the situation until too late.

    Podolski hasn’t gone out on loan and it is unlikely that a player of his calibre would be loaned out. So far the main problem for arsenal has been they havnt signed anyone but I wouldn’t say them getting rid of players has been dealt with badly like chamakh gervinho. The problem is eh weren’t replacement
