Throughout this past week; arsenal fans have been glued to their computers and phones waiting for the announcement of the signing of Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid.
Personally, I think the deal should have been concluded by now. Look at the signing of Carlos Tevez from Manchester City that deal barely took three days. However to some extent I don't blame Arsenal, signing a player might not be easy as it looks on Football Manager! Nevertheless, I'm expecting an announcement regarding the transfer this week. After signing Higuain, I feel that Marouane Fellaini is next on the list. His height would really add some steel to our midfield.
The desired formation with our potential signings would be:
Cesar- Sagna- Per- Koscielny- Monreal/Gibbs- Fellaini- Arteta/Wilshere- Poldi- Santi-Theo- Higuain.
This in my opinion would be a winning formula.
Buying Higuain, Fellaini, Cesar, Sanogo and a top class winger would make this summer transfer window a successful one for Arsenal.
However, I am a firm believer in the “Wenger knows best” theory and trust his judgment on any purchases we make.
I really can't wait for the season to start with all these potential signings; I just hope we have the new players in August.
What do you think about Emanuele Giaccherini?
I think he's been the best player for Italy in this confederations cup. In my opinion he wouldn't be a bad addition to our team.
In other news Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal will miss Arsenal’s pre-season tour of Asia as they have been given time off after appearing for Spain at the Confederations Cup in Brazil.
Arsenal players will begin reporting for training this Thursday before jetting off to Asia without the two Spaniards.
There are rumors about arsenal bidding for Fernando Torres. Despite liking Torres I still hope these are just rumors and not factual.
It's my first time blogging about arsenal and I'm so excited about it. Till next week!
