This has been quite a fascinating and interesting day, regarding transfer news, speculation, rumors and gossip surrounding the Gunners, especially regarding Gael Clichy. Without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.
Clichy Officially Leaves For Man City
The anticipated transfer of Gael Clichy to Manchester City has been confirmed today. Manchester City reportedly paid around 7 million pounds, to sign the French international whose contract was going to expire next season. Clichy has been a loyal and dedicated servant and player to the Gunners, making 264 appearances, scoring 2 goals in his 8 years with Arsenal. I wish him all the best…. except when he plays against the Gunners. Au Revoir Gael!
Arsenal Interested In Doyle
Many reports are filtering around that the Gunners are interested in signing Wolverhampton forward and Irish international, Kevin Doyle. The reports state that the Gunners will pay as much as 12 million pounds. To be honest, I’m not too keen on the Gunners signing Doyle. He’s hard-working and a good player, but for someone who doesn’t score much, 12 million pounds is too pricey.
Zamparini: I Believe That Alvarez Will Now Sign For Inter
The loud-mouthed President of Palermo has struck again. Maurizio Zamparini, who said that Ricardo Alvarez will sign for Arsenal, now says that Inter are going to sign him.
What do you think? What are your opinions on Clichy’s transfer? Do you want Wenger to sign Doyle? Should the Gunners pay up and sign Alvarez? Is Cissokho a suitable replacement for Clichy?
Please share your thoughts and opinions.
Cheers and take care,
