Yes Please Arsene: Hugely exciting transfer link for Arsenal


Joy to Watch

When Sir Alex Ferguson left Manchester United the floodgates opened with regards transfers as the club updated its policies and philosophy on how much to spend in the market.

Fergie himself admitted this year that he was amazed by modern fees and this illustrated a coach who was as prudent as he was successful. But he was also, possibly, not open to the inevitable and unstoppable constant changes in the modern football of world.

The same needs to happen with Arsenal. Arsene Wenger has bought a couple of big name key players of late but it seems as if he was dragged, kicking and screaming, into the £40m bracket.

Like Fergie, he’s been at the club so long that he may fall into the trap of comparing today’s market with previous purchases.

But it’s an unavoidable fact. To win things you usually need to spend like the big boys. One player has been linked to Arsenal today and will require big money to bring to the club. But he’s worth every penny. The Express says:

Wenger eyes £40m Pogba’s reports suggest Arsenal are now keen on the 21-year-old in their bid to sign a commanding midfielder, with Juventus valuing the France international at around £40m.

The Arsenal manager may still have reservations about spending this sort of money. But, players like Pogba are winners. They win you trophies – simple as.

Still only 21, Pogba has 22 caps for France (5) goals and is now an integral member of the team after a good World Cup.

Since leaving Man United in 2012 he’s played 102 games for Juventus and scored 18 goals. This guy is a classic box-to-box midfielder. He’s good in the tackle, tall and powerful, and a great athlete. But, going forward, he really comes into his own.

He links play beautifully and scores sensational goals at big moments. He plays without fear and he’s French. What more could Arsene want?

Pogba can help Arsenal succeed for a decade. Even is he left the club after a few years he would command a huge fee again. When you look at it like that, the price tag doesn’t seem so crazy.

Let’s see him in action. Arsenal fans: worth the cash?

    If Arsenal can get Pogba, Arsenal should buy him, though he is not what Arsenal actually need. For that reason, it is hard to see this happening.

    Arsenal didn’t bring Fabregas back tothe team because Arsene Wenger didn’t want to inhibit Ramsey and Wilshire; both of whom would be blocked if Fabregas came back. Ditto for Pogba.

    Arturo Vidal plays defensive midfield for Juventus and Pogba plays in the same position as Ramsey, central midfield in what is effectively a 4,1,1,3,1 formation.

    What Arsenal need is a Nemanja Matic-type to play in behind Ramsay and in front of the back 4. If Pogba is willing, then by all means, grab him, but he is at his best going forward, and the last thing Arsenal need is another attack-minded midfielder.

    Khedira, Cavalho, Gonalons, Gustavo, and this new Brazilian, Lucas Silva, are more the model.
