The transfer merry go round is at full swing again today. Sunday is always a day where you come across some of the weirdest transfer stories that you would never imagine. But the one today that seems to be making the rounds and it featured in The Mirror is the move linked Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing with a move to Arsenal.
The reason I have picked up on this story today is because this is not the first time this summer we have been linked with Downing. When this story first surfaced a couple of days, many of us wondered why do we need to sign an out and out winger like Downing when we should rather be looking at midfielders capable of replacing Fabregas and Nasri.
Downing is a very good player but he is not a priority need at Arsenal right and to go out and break the bank and in spending £20million on him does not make sense.
The Mirror says that Wenger wants to sign Downing in order to get in an experienced Premier League player who can come straight into the starting line-up rather than getting in a young foreigner who could take time to adjust.
Do you think signing Downing would be a good move for Arsenal?
