Arsene, take the Adebayor money and buy Arshavin


By 1970’s Gooner

I have eulogized about Andrei Arshavin before. I consider him as the most appropriate player to be bought by Arsenal this season.

He is a typical Wenger player. He is very very quick, athletic and most of all possesses high technique and ball skills. More over he plays with his brain.

His through passes, bisecting the opposing defence and playing his on coming forward through are exquisite and reminiscent of Wenger's style of football.

There is, I am sure, a lot written about his skills, after his single handedly destroyed a luck luster Holland in the quarter final of Euro 2008.

However, he also possesses another characteristic that Arsenal is desperate for. Experience.

Although he does not look it, as his baby face masks his real age, he is actually 27 years old.

If he is transferred to Arsenal he will be, along with Hleb (if he stays) and Toure only one of three players aged 27 and only behind Rosicky who is 28 and Gallas and Almunia who are 31.

Arshavin would indeed be a significant signing for Wenger. Not only is he an exceptional player he would also provide more selection alternatives especially if Adebayor is sold on.

The news coming out of the Spanish press is that a fee has already been agreed between Arsenal and Barcelona.

Arsenal requested 30 m euros and Barcelona offered only 25. The final figure is reported to be 27 m euros or around 22m pounds.This could increase as AC Milan seem to also want to splash the cash for Adebayor.

Take the money and buy Arshavin I say.

Robin Van Persie could be moved in the central striker’s role and he would I think end up with more than the 24 goals Adebayor scored last season.

The team after all would create scoring chances for whoever is playing as a central striker.

And in my opinion Robin Van Persie would not need as many chances to put the ball in the net as Adebayor did last season.

With Van Persie as a central striker Arshavin as well as new boy Nasri along with Eduardo, Rosicky, Walcott and Vela would be the players Wenger could choose from to place around him in either a 4 3 3 or a 4 4 2 formation.

I am assuming that Hleb would not be at the Emirates next season.

Arshavin himself said: "Regarding my future, I have already said I'd like to try one of Europe's top leagues, among which the Spanish and English leagues interest me most."


No wonder Wenger is interested in Arshavin

Arsenal agree large fee for Adebayor. But kept quiet until replacement signing comes in

A fit van Persie would score the goals, not sure about his fitness for a whole a season though. Arshavin is very good though, and a typical arsenal player

I'd still like to keep Ade and replace Hleb with Arshavin. Last season Wenger said he was gonna buy a creative player (Nasri), that was before Hleb looked like leaving. So with Hleb leaving surely a replacement must be bought and Arshavin would be a much better player for our club than Hleb. If Ade leaves then replace him with Villa, Huntelaar or this guy Diogo. On Diogo the whole story could be rubbish created by his agent to garner up hype and money before a big money move to europe.

god i hop we buy him. its been a long time since ive seen a player with such a disgusting amount of talent

Absolutely no chance. As much as the Board say they will support Wenger in the transfer market, the evidence points to that being the usual tissue of lies. Despite Arsenal fans helping produce the highest gate recepts in the premiership(financing Arsenals debt with just a third of that money, not including all other profits from merchandising, premier league money and sponsorship), Wenger has already said in not so many words that despite the quality of the players at Euro 2008 being at such a high level, he cannot afford to buy them!! Where has the clubs money gone? And do not think that Arsene will be given the money for Adabayor and Hleb to spend. That will go directly to the Board and Wenger will be forced to buy teenage prodigies that he can turn into World class players that leave at a huge profit as they start to return their investment, anther very nice profit for the board. That's the reality. We are a selling club, a training camp for the biggest clubs in Europe.

Too old, too expensive and too similar (to Hleb, Vela. Nasri, Rosicky) for starters. And it certainly doesn't make any sense to sell your goalscoring target man and replace him with at best a second striker. Doesn't matter anyway though, 'cause it's not going to happen...

get real arsenal fans, you aint signing arshavin, he is too expensive for you. wenger wont buy him, dream on

Baz said...

Arshavin can not be a direct replacement for Ade. If we need to replace Ade, then we need to replace him with someone who can get us 30 goals in a season.

People are getting to hyped up about Arshavin. Why weren't ppl so hyped up before the tournament? Its a dangerous game buying someone because they have performed well at a tournament.

Arshavin is 27, and will need at least 6 months to settle in. He wont have a re-sale value either. And of course, his price has sky rocketed so he will be pricey. It won't happen.

Rhinogooner said...

I wouldn't want to see Adebayor go as it would upset the stability of the team further. But, if he is sold, I feel we should buy Arshavin and Villa to augment our attack.

I realize that leaves us with quite a few players that can play as forwards. But several of them can be implemented wide. And there are question marks over the inexperience or fitness of our current crop of forwards.

Franny said...

Just like Rosicky walked into the Arsenal team with no time to settle... so would Arshavin. I don't believe he needs 6 months to adapt - not every player does.

However, I doubt that we'll get him now. No big names remember? He's become a pretty big name this summer.

THere is no doubt we need Usmanov in charge and ploughing in his roubles as soon as possible, we can't even compete with the likes of Man City at the moment. It's embarassing.

I hardly can see Arshavin to join us, even though I must admit I will go ballistic if he signs for us. Arshavin is currently on 50000GBP per week in Zenit. In Russia, you don't have to pay tax (or tax evasion is more than common). That means we will have to pay more than 83333GBP just to match his current wages. He probably will demand for even higher wages, citing the high cost of living in London.

I can see him eventually signs for Chel$ki. Roman are always ready to splash silly money and better still, he is one of his compatriots.

adebayor please go

leon said...

i dont understant why the fans always assumes wenger has got the funds to buy player he has always had around 50-70 mill to spend but wenger would spend 20-3o mill one player not because he has got the funds because its bad business. especaily when he has such vast scouting network he get a wide player for than 8 million and cm for less 8 mill, he has already stated that he does not buy players from the compitions because the prices are two inflated.

i would sell ade because he more arial type attack as in crosses and set plays

"Robin Van Persie could be moved in the central striker’s role and he would I think end up with more than the 24 goals Adebayor scored last season."

HAHA yeah sure...rvp is the typical injury player. he will never be ok.

Think about it- would you sell another player to Milan? NO WAY
Milan will end up buying ALL the arsenal team IF THEY ARE MORE SUCCESSFUL than Arsenal this year- so easier to lure more arsenal players if the backbone already in place.

The only way out for Ade is Barcelona ...with a twist: Adebayor playing second fiddle to Henry again and probably wenger's vengeance.

Yes milan will get what the answer deserve, for trying to buy all the arsenal team: fax off!

Arshavin is good but NO replacement for Adebayor who can play upfront on his own because of his size& speed and mobility in a 4-5-1 scenario. It will take santa cruz AND arshavin to replace adebayor.

Hmm, why people keep saying that Arshavin is too old? Platini was just 27 when he went to Juve. He was nothing especial before the WC 1982 and it took him 4 years only to become a legend. If Arshavin would do for Arsenal the half of what Platini did for Juve he'd become one of the greatest gunners ever
