Whilst all the focus right now on Arsenal is about Fabregas and Nasri leaving, we tend to forget that life must go on and we need to sign some players. Coming into the Arsenal door this week should be two new signings, Gervinho from Lille and Gary Cahill from Bolton.

According to the Mirror, Gervinho is flying into Arsenal today (Wednesday) for talks with Arsenal ahead of a potential £12million move.

Whilst Cahill has a £17million release clause in his contract which Arsenal look set to activate with a cash plus player deal. Cahill has one year left on his contract and wants to join Arsenal above interest from Tottenham and Liverpool.

If Arsenal are to make these two signings this week, it would be a major boost for the club and the fans who have been calling out for some signings this summer. Wenger has made it clear to us that he is not going to go crazy and splash the cash this summer unless he sees value in the deals he is doing.

Gervinho is set to come in and either partner Van Persie upfront (when he is fit) and that means we may now be looking at playing with a 4-4-2 formation next season. Gervinho is also versatile enough to play in a 4-3-3 formation where he can either lead the line or play wide of the right or left. It is this versatility that makes Gervinho a great signing.

We all know we had problems defensively last season and Wenger has seen that thus the need to go out and get another central defender to play alongside Vermaelen. Cahill would be the perfect choice as he has Premiership experience.

I hope these two signings do go through!

    If Lansbury is going to be the one moving to Bolton for Cahill i don’t like that. But if it’s going to be Diaby or Denilson I won’t mind. Lansbury looks like a great prospect for arsenal in the nearest future!. He should be kept #obiwankenobi

  2. MUGIMU EDWIN says:

    Wenger shd leave

  6. sunday ibeh says:

    the two signing is so good

  7. more says:

    nice one. Just wrap up this deal and let see what hapens next

  8. Teejay says:

    No player bigger than arsenal,cesc and nasir should go

  9. Afen says:

    That we b a good development wenger go 4 dem and then hit d market 4 samba,parker and defoe.

  10. Joy Richy says:

    super fabregas should go because it doesn’t sounds good to hear that every season your captain is link with a move to other club.BUT Arsen must keep Nasri.

  11. stev1 says:

    denilson shd rather b da person in the cash price 4 cahill not lansbury since he has a future with arsenal…

  12. Adelusimi olakunle says:

    Plz mr arsene we are fed up of every season failure do sometin,make us proud again as u did early last decade

  13. in wenger we used to trust

  14. Kai says:

    I really agree that we shouldn’t let Lansbury move away unless it is simply a loan deal. We need some big experienced players now, that’s no secret but there is no reason to abandon the policy of promoting youth and Lansbury looks like he could be a very useful player for us.

  15. raimi okanlawon ayomide says:

    That is so good

  16. bllllllllleh says:

    i hope most people realise that a player plus cash offer CAN also mean to LOAN instead of a straight forward swap. thats the only way i would see lansbury playing for bolton next season.

  17. Stevie says:

    To all who has lost faith in wenger. There is no one who could do a better job right now. I say Fab should go. Whats it say when the captain loves another club. Id drop nasri into the fab role.
    I think we should get M Diarra in to compete with song. Id also put verm at LB in the bruising games. sell clichy Put Cahill and Samba in the centre if we can get them.

  18. ewa jerome says:

    we need them with parker, eto,o, falcoa,samba.

  19. Elparato says:

    What’s da need of releasing Cesc and Nasri and bring Gervinho and Cahill.?..crap!
    Hop we include Wenger in the deal

  20. TrueWisdom says:


  21. Teslim Olajide says:

    It will be great if we do so most especially gervinho i think all arsenal fans will be very happy

  22. Iyamu Martins says:

    Enough of these SPECULATION about players coming to ASRSENAL,I’ll not believe anything i read until this signings are made.

  23. abass abdulganiy feranmi says:

    arsenal should sing better players

  24. friday ofonmbuk says:

    i am looking forward 2 dis formation-1,schesny,2,sagna,3,vermaelen,4,song,5,samba,6,cahill,7,walcoot,8,nasri,9,v.p,10,wilshire,11,gervinho.

  25. olayemi akinbolade says:

    mr wenger it good to act than speaking

  26. anon1 says:

    No body wants us to just splash the cash for the sake of it … thats where wenger and board are quite frankly insulting in their criticisms of spending 50 million on a player… no gooner has ever said they would be happy to spend that and i hazard a guess even if we could do that gooners would not be happy about it.

    If there is a prospect of losing both cesc and nasri, you would have thought we needed players a little bit more established, world class and experienced then the two mentioned. Cahill and gervinho would be good additions but it is not about spending for the sake of it but rather getting the best player in.

    My concern is that these buys will not be adequate to persuade players to stay and if thats the case have we just blown important funds only to confirm to our want away stars we do not have the ambition of our rivals?

    But having said that, screw them if they want to leave, right?

  27. bex says:

    i read that owen coyl wants our young defener, miguel as part of the cahill deal. pliz AW, let US KEEP MIGUEL COZ HE’s got a great feature at arsenal. we can instead loose denilson, vella, etc

  28. Bang Mayor says:

    I think it’s time 4 AW 2 let Cesc go. I’ve never found da worst captain like Cesc in ma life supporting Arsenal. Any way safe journey and enjoy ur bench at Barca.

  29. ABDU SSESANGA says:

    we need nasri so i think wanger con offlod hte caputane and live nasri

  30. Wonde says:

    Fab and Nasri leave Gerviniho and Cahil in… What does that mean? It doesn’t bring anything for Arsenal. He is joking. The loyal Arsenal fans should make protest against him. He should leave the club before anybody else. The most Stingy manger.

  31. Osas says:

    Pls wenger should go for samba becaus he hav d experience and he physical also

  32. On arsen we beleive

  33. tinoco says:

    I think arsenal is an academy for making players,not premier leugue club for trophies,what I see we are going for the seven seson without any trophy,the departure of sesc is going to mark that,I think mr venger makes jokes there!

  34. sikiru adediran says:

    arsenal must buy quality players if they want carry trophy next season

  35. Arsenal1 says:

    We should play 4-3-3
    Have Cahill partner Vermaelen and buy Enrique to play left back. Get Vidal to compete with song (he would also be a good depth signing as he can create goals and score them). Then we partner nasri and wilshere in the middle. On the wings we have gervinho and Walcott and in the centre is van Persie (walcott and van Persie are interchangeable)

  36. Marcus madaki umar says:

    Plz sign a good midfi. That can play fabr.partern if my coarch do n’t sign good players no trophies dis i am no more arsenal fans.plz my coarch samba,cahill,gervinoh,parker & good striker dat wil b on reserved. Tankz

  37. Nerus says:

    Fab can go,wenger should sign samba he wil b a very big aset 4us.

  38. Akinleye sodiq says:

  48. Daniel says:
