Who needs to be sold and signed this summer

Image for Who needs to be sold and signed this summer

Recent results have reflected the hard-work and commitment put in by our players and so I guess it’s only justified to congratulate them after enduring such a busy schedule as of late.

However, having said that, I guess I can be allowed to turn the page and address the issues at hand.

I really love, value and rate our current crop of players and I will forever continue to. We must however not forget that despite their quality some of them might have lost it at Arsenal and therefore some chopping needs to be had. I have therefore analysed and included the following list of who should be going and who should be coming in respectively:


Abou Diaby

One of the best dribblers and passers of the ball at the club. He also possesses magnificent movement and was highlighted to be in the mould of one Patrick Vieira. Multiple injuries have however all but hampered his Arsenal career, reducing him to a ‘paid for nothing’ status.

Andrey Arshavin

First of all I wonder if he will be willing to extend his current contract but even so, the Russian seems to have lost his way on the wing and though he favours the number 10 position, it will be hard to come by at the Emirates, especially considering Arsene Wenger’s preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. Still word-class for me but perhaps his time at Arsenal has finally run out.

Marouane Chamakh

The Moroccan just seems less confident, less aggressive than last season and looks to have given up.

Sebastien Squillaci

No comment.

Manuel Almunia

Just let him leave, never going to play for the club again.


Javi Martinez

The Spanish midfielder is said to be the new Patrick Vieira in his native country and has also admitted to idolising the legendary Frenchman in the past. His Endless energy, aerial ability, versatility and ability on the ball would make him a perfect partner for Song and co. in midfield. has admitted that he would be keen on a move to the Premier League.

Lukas Podolski

If reports from Germany are accurate then the FC Koln striker is already Gunner, having been bought for a fee of £10.9 million fee. Would certainly give Robin van Persie some competition upfront.

Gonzalo Higuain

Forget Karim Benzema (who I think has the same negatives as Chamakh), Higuan is the striker to help bolster our attacking options.

Jan Vertonghen

Ex-partner of Thomas Vermaelen and could also provide cover in midfield.

Now I would rather see these players stated above arrive over Hazard or Gotze, as I believe the players listed would bring more steel to the side, which we urgently need.

    seems like you all want Vertonghen in, how many of you have actually seen him play? ( more than 1 game )

    dont know a lot about javi martinez,but he sounds good,,he is no song but maybe ok,,i think song needs to learn that he is not cesc and never will be,we could have scored wed late on if he passed the ball properly,,he didnt and we went out,,now i love song but he just needs to do what he is exceptional at,and thats reading the game,closing space and being available for the cbs to pick out in midfield,,he needs to stay back more,be less gung ho and realise that he is our shield in front of the back 4,,not our playmaker

  • One should be extral careful when placing an articles like this, though that is his opinion my opinion is that arsenal should clear out the followings: aluminua, djourou, squallica, diaby, vela, park, arshavim, chamake, bentiner, then they should go for iloaka atheltico babilo stopper, veltglegn from ajax, harzad lille, gortiz brosisa D, pordisk cologn, Saruez from ajax, plus two other players, finally make sure we don’t sell RVP. Then next season let any one come the will be going home with least 2-0

  • zizou says:

    How can u say “forget about benzema”. This shows that you don’t understand football at all. He is the most elegant and efficient striker in the world right now at just 24, better than rvp and god knows I rate him high. Did u just see the guy play ?
