No Melo to Arsenal? Morning dose of Arsenal News!!!

Good Morning gooners!!!

It got me all excited yesterday,which also prompted me to write an article suggesting that” Melo to Arsenal” deal may be on the verge of an outcome. Just a day after it was reported that Arsenal had begun talks about a swap deal involving Melo and Eboue, reports now suggest that Juventus have already signed the midfielder. Surely not a very good thing to hear early morning. Nothing is official yet, but reports and also Melo’s  Wikipedia profile seems to suggest that. If indeed true it might come as shock to Arsene Wenger who would have been a bit more hopeful after statements from Fiorentina director yesterday.  This saga is turning out to be “the transfer” .Its now had more twists and turns and  ups and downs than the stock markets in 2 weeks. Still not confirmed by Juventus officials or Fiorentina, but it would be a blow to Wenger if it were to happen.Also with some reports suggesting that Wenger might actually offer Senderos and Eboue both has got me a bit worried. Its never a good deal to have two players leaving to bring in one . Not only does it reduce the squad size, it also leaves us with players playing bits-pieces role to fill up the gaps. In other news Brede Hangeland’s future still hangs in the balance after he rejected a new deal at Fulham. Aston Villa and Arsenal are interested in the defender as Wenger aims to improve the backline.Meanwhile Ivan Gazidiz, Arsenal’s Chief Executive, has said that the side needs to win a trophy this season, saying its high time and that a top four finish is not sufficient.He means business.Well good to hear that.Moving on… Lachter is one helluva guy….. Arshavin’s agent ( or former agent ) has rubbished reports that he spoke about Arshavin to Barcelona and that he continues to represent the player even after it was suggested that Arshavin might have asked him not to. The guy just can’t keep his trap shut.Anyways Arshavin was seen to have a good time at training yesterday after Arsenal released pictures of the 1st training session.It was good to see Rosicky, Dudu and Vermaelen all part of the group. Seeing that and hoping that we don’t sell more than one player, it seems we do have enough depth in our squad and can really challenge for all titles in the coming season.


So who should Wenger really go for? If he’s missed out on Melo , should it be Cana or Matuidi or someone else ? Have your say ..…

Also I have decided not to get too excited about a transfer too soon, seem to jinx it everytime.And before i sign off, a rare headline in news today : “Real Madrid priced out of a move for Xabi Alonso” … Certainly don’t see Real Madrid and “priced out” in the same line very often…


Well that’s all I have now, have to get back to work !!



More updates on the transfers as and when it progresses.


Cheers  🙂
