    we been linked with him last year,

    but I can't see it happening now.

    Clichy doing great at the moment.

    yeah, and with traore coming up. getting urby will seriously hinder traore's progress. unless he's planning on using urby as a winger...

    wheres the link?? i aint believing that!!
    but he has a great cross on him, the amount of times i see him set up huntelaar with final balls in and around the box
    hes defensively poor but can get away with it in the dutch league.
    our goal against ajax, it was him that was way out of position but urby is a good attacker

    Yep, and then we convert Clichy to a left winger just to solve the existing issue of our wide areas.

    Way to go Arsène if this rumour is true. :roll:

    has not worked with Eboue so i doubt Wenger would bother doing the same on the left

    First, I doubt the validity of this report. Second, on the LB position, the team have Clichy as definite starter and Gallas as an experienced makeshift, with Traor lined up in wait. Third, I'd rather the club go for Di Maria.

    yeah, agree with most but had he wanted Angel Di Maria he would have taken him up before the player went to Benfica

    Would be better to convert Urby to left wing and keep Clichy at LB. If it ain't broken...

    left back needs strengthening imo with traore still looking shaky there.

    5m for him is a good deal. means we have another sort of winger too

    It's pretty obvious to me that he would be signed to give more competition on the left-hand side of midfield. Clichy is pretty untouchable at left-back.

    i am welcome for a new signing, remember how we all said that we didnt need sagna, hope it turns out the same, plus we need more left footers in defence.

    I havn't seen him much, but whenever i have, he has looked poor defensively.

    I've never really been that impressed when I've seen Emmanuelson.

    Not really sure he's a player we need, to be honest.

    If Wenger buys a new left back, then I think it's safe to say he's just trying to wind us up.

    Never really rated the guy to be honest, decent player but not Arsenal quality. A non starter for me.

    Haven't seen much, but from what I've seen, not great either. One of the few rumours that doesn't interest me.

    I too don't rate the guy at all. Totally pointless signing, if true.

    EMIR8_SOLDIER New Member

    links is bulls**t as we all know already

    Before I said I doubt the truth of this report. But now I change my mind. I hold the opinion similar to number_0's. Wenger might have quite a different view regarding the issue of lack of width. AW signed Sagna and move Eboue to RM, so maybe AW might do the same on the left. Another possible cause for this reported interest might be related to Modric. Emauelson could be a Plan B if Modric not to move to Arsenal.

    Emanuelson isn't valued too much and have potential (how much is another question) for further improvement. He looks like Wenger-type target to me. Emanuelson is cup-tied now as he featured the first leg of the AJAX-Slavia Prague round. But I don't think this would reduce Wenger's interest. It didn't stop Wenger from signing Ade (Zigic was cup-tied during that time, I believed) and being interested in the cup-tied Modric. Maybe Wenger just tried to use cup-tied as a way to get his bargains.

    I am not saying Emanuelson is an ideal target yet he might fit Wenger's bill (not ordinary Arsenal fans').

    [EDIT] This may not mean anything. Urby Emanuelson's agent is Winnie Haatrecht, who happens to represent Babel. http://tinyurl.com/ynok4e
