With clubs paying a lot of attention to their transfer budgets it will be no surprise in these harsh economic conditions to see clubs swapping players this summer. “You take him if you give us him. DEAL!” One potential deal like that could happen between Arsenal and Roma.
Gael Clichy is still refusing to sign a new contract with Arsenal and that means he may just be sold this summer before he leaves for free next summer. Liverpool have been keeping an eye on Clichy but I doubt he will join Liverpool whereas a move to Roma is very much possible as we would be swapping him for Menez.
The 24-year-old former Sochaux and Monaco star has indicated he wants to leave Roma and has been watched by scouts from Liverpool and Newcastle United in recent weeks. However, Menez could prove a useful acquisition for Arsenal, as he can play in a central role, but favours appearing on the left wing.
