**** this rumour. Since 2003 it's bored me.
The point is, Toure does not want to play for us. We'd have a better chance at signing someone like Melo anyway. DCM is a position Song has made his own, so I don't see Wenger splashing the cash unless it's for a keeper or CB.
I'd love Toure here if I'm being honest. That's the Denilson argument done and dusted right there.
Denilson is still a better choice than Nasri and Diaby for the 'third midfielder' role next to Song and Fabregas (should he stay with us).
They're all as bad as each other, for different reasons, I think.
Denilson is not a better option for anything
If Fabregas has to play with Denilson again, I can't see him staying past January 2011.
Come on guys. Obviously Toure is mixed up in the Cesc transfer.
Barca are trying to ramp up the price of Toure,as obviously City are baulking at their asking price. So they say Arsenal will get him in Cesc deal unless you pay for him now, pay what we want.
They're obviously trying to apply media pressure - why else insinuate that City aren't rich?
Then with that cash, they can boost Cesc purchase. That's the only link to us.
Seriously, don't want him. Not because he's not talented, but because he'll probably **** himself to Chelski or City as soon as he arrives.
**** off yaya
Has Yaya actually made a statement declaring that he doesn't want to play for us? I only recall seeing the usual tabiod garbage about how Cesc's deal is falling through because Yaya doesn't want to move in the other direction.
It's not that I am that interested in him playing for us, but I don't think it's apprioriate to make character assassinations based on tabiod crap...
The sad thing in this is I can actually see barca having the cheek as to offer yaya plus 5-10 million for cesc...such is the degree which they overvalue yaya and undervalue fabregas.
Won't happen though as he doesn't want to come here and I am perfectly happy to reciprocate those feelings in not wanting him here myself.
Laporta values Yaya more than Cesc so I don't see this deal reaching very far. I'd be happy to get Yaya + 30m for Cesc though because he is the type of player needed at this club. I also doubt Wenger will buy a midfielder if we only get cash for Fabregas, so with this we at least know we'll be getting a player for sure.
I have never seen a quote from Yaya stating that he does not want to come to Arsenal. It was his agent that made those quotes. And now his agent has called Man City a "bankrupt" club. His agent surely has a big mouth that is doing his client no favors.
Regardless of what Yaya or his agent said, I think it is clear that the brothers want to play together. Remember Kolo publicly begging Wenger to sign him a few years ago.
Perhaps we should try to get Kolo back?
Kolo is not a footballer anymore.
Whoa- I want whatever he's smoking!
They are even more stupid then we thought if they think we would accept £10m + Yaya.
yeah its FM'ing, but you must admit that doesnt look too bad. esp if you consider the depth we have in all those attacking positions.
alternatively we can dream of a new wenger formation, the 2-3-2-3
