Seen as transfer gossip has been the theme of the comments section this week, I thought I’d do a run down of potential buys this coming transfer window.
The dream buy, a rarity in the footballing world – English and talented. Micah is only 19, he is fast, powerful and has an eye for goal. He plays Right back and Centre back. He has the versatility that Wenger likes in his players and he is an avid gooner. He would come at a premium though and would Man City part with him considering the financial clout they have? Would Micah accept being behind Kolo and Gallas?

Our old favourite Nic Anelka. We know all about this man, good and bad. He has electric pace, silky skills and a thunderous shot. Many Arsenal fans see him as the perfect signing to bolster our attack this winter. We all know the potential problems with Anelka. His attitude stinks a lot of the time. But as Arsenal fans, we are quite forgiving. I would take him back, but would Le Boss? Do we have enough striking options? Would Anelka hinder youngsters like Nikki B and Theo? Is he too old?

Top scorer in the African Champions league. He is bulky, fast and a good finisher. According to reports, he is a better prospect than Sammy Eto’o. Wenger has confirmed that he has been on trial with us and he also confirmed that he was impressed. I would think that Wenger is cautious of making another Yaya blunder… sign him up Wenger!

The big Italian is unsettled at Bayern Munich; he is home sick. So the obvious choice for his next club would be Arsenal or Spurs apparently. The guy is class. He is powerful, good in the air and has a World Cup winners medal behind him. Bayern paid £17 million for him in the summer and I doubt his valuation would depreciate that heavily. I think his age and his cost would be a huge factor in his chances of joining us but ManU signed Larrson for a season. Stranger things have happened.

Many of you want us to sign a top class goalkeeper in the transfer window. With Bolton looking decidedly shite this season, and his contract expiring in June, could Arsenal be ready to pounce with a bargain bid in January? He is a solid keeper who is 32. He also has the advantage of looking 9 years old… good for the 4 year contract when he hits 31 (Don’t show Wenger you licence!)! The only stumbling block with this one is that Almunia is playing well and Fabianski is the new Cech. He has never had Champions League experience, which can only hinder his transfer.

Dubbed the best midfielder in the world by, err? His agent! I don’t really understand the hype around him to be honest. He is small, not overly fast and hideously ugly. Not that being ugly makes you a bad player, but imagine the nightmares young Bayern Munich fans are have over the posters of Franck Ribery? I don’t want young Gooner’s having the same issues. I think the price being touted is £15 million. I doubt Arsenal will stretch to that.

A young defender who is contracted to Villareal and out on load at Recreativo. I have read that he is a good defender on a few websites but then I read he was being kept out of the team by Big Phil’s footballing mentor… PASCAL CYGAN. I must stop writing now. This transfer is a no go. The player has also ruled out a move.
Wish List Chance: 1%
The Emanuel Petit look-a-like holding midfielder from Sporting. He is a classy player, who ran PV04 off the park a few weeks ago. He also has the advantage of being able to play right across the back. He would be a great asset to Arsenal, but at the end of the day we already have 6 million centre midfielders and the last thing we want to do is another player position conversion. Wenger’s latest attempt hasn’t gone to well. Senderos – Goalkeeper to Centre back… it was never going work was it?

So that is my run down of potential buys this January transfer! Lets have some of your thoughts in the comments!
In other news Adebayor has been telling jokes again. He comically said,
“But who knows? If Real Madrid comes with an offer of £100m, Arsenal might be tempted to sell me. If Wenger tells me to go, I cannot fight to stay.”
Oh Ade, you kill me! You really do!
Cesc could be out for up to three games, which would be a huge blow to us. I hope the injury is less serious. No news from the official site yet, but some interesting quotes here.
The Jew, the Christian and the Muslim. Sounds like a children’s book doesn’t it? It’s not though. They are the religions of the three Arsenal fans who are planning on suing Arsenal for breach of contract. They are suing over the racist chanting of the term ‘Yiddo’. It offends all three of them, and Arsenal don’t do enough to stop it happening (really?). I don’t really want to give my opinion on the matter as I am not religious, but if there is anyone out there who is religious and has an opinion on the chanting it would be interesting to hear what you think in the comments section.
See you in the comments sections! Happy Groving!
