With the January transfer window opening on Tuesday, Arsenal have once again been linked with a move for Manchester United’s Nani.
Nani, who has only managed to make four starts in the Premier League so far this season, appears to be heading out of Old Trafford following his drop in the pecking order and reaching a contract stalemate at the club.
Arsene Wenger could easily afford Nani’s transfer fee, reportedly at around £12 million, after being told he has cash to splash, and could also offer what the Portugal international is looking for in wages, believed to be £90k-a-week.
But would it be a good move for Arsenal to push for?
Do we really need Nani?
To be honest, I don’t think so.
I understand Gervinho is off to the African Cup of Nations next month, Theo Walcott’s future remains uncertain and Andrey Arshavin is more than likely off as well. However, buying yet another winger is not a necessity. We have enough as it is.
Don’t get me wrong, Nani is a good player who possesses great skill, movement and Premier League experience. However, his temperament and attitude stinks, and their must be a reason why he is failing at United at present.
I just think splashing out on the 26-year-old would be a waste of money, and I just can’t see Wenger handing Nani a wage packet of £90k-a-week when he is reluctant to give Walcott an extra £10k.
Even if the abovementioned players do leave in January, we still have enough about us to cope in the wide positions. And as such, I believe Wenger should strengthen other areas of the team.
