North London Is Red

Transfer Rumours

Here you’ll find details of players Arsenal have been linked with in the press and a few thoughts from me.


Today Arsenal have been linked with Podolski and the Blackburn pair Junior Hoilett and Stephen Nzonzi.

Podolski is a player that I have long admired and desired to be an Arsenal player. He is strong, quick, a prolific finisher, proven at the top level and technically astute enough to fit into the Arsenal way. Podolski didn’t have a great time with Bayern but he has proven his worth once again at Cologne and would be a perfect foil for Van Persie who would be able to play as more of a no.10 where I believe he will be even more dangerous.

The other two for me are certainly not Arsenal class and I don’t want them at my club. I think both are good young players but not as good as the players we have already and will not improve the team at all. Could two midfielders in a relegation battling team really be able to spark Arsenal into a new generation of trophy winning? I don’t think so.

If the rumours are true that Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Podolski and all we need now are terms with Cologne then I suggest that you just pay them £12-15m now and get him confirmed for next season just in case we don’t make 4th and he decides to join Spurs instead! (That said I’m 100% confident that we’ll make 4th)
