Why Arsenal shouldn’t accept this proposed swap deal

It appears are looking for a deal which could see them land want-away striker Marouane Chamakh with youngster Adem Ljajic move in the opposite direction.

Ljajic made the headlines this season after former Fiorentina boss Delio Rossi punched the player following a substitution whereby the 20-year-old sarcastically applauded his manager’s decision to replace him during a Serie A match against Novara. As a result of his actions, the Florence-based club parted ways with Rossi, who was fined £12,000 fine and given a three month ban.

Having scored just four goals last season for Fiorentina, you’d have to question the decision to accept the swap deal on ’s part. However, you could argue that Chamakh himself hasn’t exactly done better. In fact, the Moroccan only scored one goal for the Gunners this season! Also it would mean that we would have one less player who we would lose to the African Cup of Nations, which would be a bonus to the club in general.

I for one am not 100% convinced about this proposed transfer. There is no doubting that Ljajic is young enough to come in and improve dramatically, but you have to question any player coming in and being able to cope with the physical demands of the Premier League.

There is no doubt, in my view, that Chamakh will be leaving Arsenal during the summer. However, I don’t think the swap deal in this case would really benefit Arsenal, and I think the only reason Fiorentina are considering this move is to get rid of a player who has under performed this year.

No deal for me, despite Chamakh’s lack of impact this season.

Chamakh for Ljajic – would you swap?

    Sincerelly Speaking, Chamakh was verry good for us wen he first came to Arsenal. He was able to score goals dat really helped us in d absence of injury prone RVP. D dude only lost confidence wen RVP came back n he was relegated to d bench permanently. So u guys should pls giv him a little credit even if its true dat he needs to liv Arsenal.

    Absolutely unbelievable!! Who writes this article? Hand chamakh over as soon as possible. I’ve known ljajic for a while, reminds me of recoba. U seem to forget RVP was once a rebel at feynoord and sold him to us for 2bloody mil! Besides if wenger messes up ljajic can help us sock him in the jaw!
