Arsenal may have had a very slow summer in the transfer market thus far but things are set to pick up in the next couple of days as the Gunners get set to hijack two signings that Liverpool think they have in the bag. This just goes to show how quickly a team has to move in the transfer market or else you will miss out on your signings.

Liverpool have been dragging their feet in their search for a new left-back. They had wanted to sign Gael Clichy from us but the Frenchman decided to join Manchester City. Now Liverpool have turned their efforts back to Newcastle’s Jose Enrique who they should have signed a long time ago. But they have delayed and we are in the market now to sign Enrique as we need a replacement for Clichy.

Liverpool were thought to be disagreeing a price with Newcastle as the Toon side want £15million for the defender but there are suggestions that they could accept an £8million offer. I am sure Liverpool and Arsenal would be able to afford this fee, it would then come down to where Enrique wants to play and joining Arsenal would be the best option for him as we are in the Champions League and Liverpool are not.

The second player Liverpool have been eyeing that Arsenal look set to steal away from them too is Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing. Liverpool had a £15million bid for the England winger rejected and if Arsenal are able to get some cash from selling Nasri or Fabregas then we could bid the £20million that Villa want for the winger.

Do you think these two would be good signings for Arsenal? Not only would they be giving a boost to our squad but we would be depleting the prospects of Liverpool who are trying to break into the Top 4.

  2. Kamara says:

    AW should try & sign samba and cahil.

  3. Kamara says:

    AW should try & sign samba , cahil and one top striker like either benzemah ,etoo as being speculated or better stil solomon kalou.

    Hay u guys what z hell u think selling cesc n nasri, no they r not going anywhere we have 40milion from z board plus 7mil cilichy’s n may b 13mil by b52 n alumunia so we only buy jackinson 4 2mil n gervinio 4 11mili n we should add chahil 4 15 mil. So we use the remaining to by downing n benzema., invisibles part 2!

  5. e-papi says:

    It ll b a gud move if wenger brings in d 2 players bt we ve nt heard anything abt d central defenders..the earlier we bring in players the better fr us so they can blend..jst dnt support d idea of gibbs taking over clichy’s spot..he’s young n injury prone n can’t withstand d competition in Epl..we still need a prolific striker n a gud defensive midfieler n we r gud to go..

    We don’t need to consider the sale price of Fabregas OR Nasri when calculating the amount of money available for new blood. Funds are already in the war chest!!

  7. Nasir says:

    Wenger pls do something this season

  8. Tazlent says:

    we should buy torres for 20m… just kidding.

  9. Andy says:

    Both are crap so let’s hope not.

  10. goonerishirish says:

    You bloggers- A warning for you! Arsene Wenger is not signing any one. Just may be Gervinio!!!

  11. Rankk1 says:

    Not a very good idea at all selling Cesc and Samir to fund moves for Downing and Enrique, that would significantly weaken the squad. On top of that Villa seem to be holding out for double what Downings worth, we could do much better with that amount of money.

  12. lol says:

    £20 million for downing hahahha i dont think anyone would pay that.
    £20 can get you a top quailty winger who would pay that for downing

  13. Philbet says:

    I fink we shud by Uddleston from Spurs E make gud left back,ven we by rio Coka fronm \Villa he bring sum quality but Wenger he two tite he buy no-one ,why u hate gooner fans so much mr wenger.

  14. haruna azeez says:

    i want 2 urge u wenger, 2 buy an experience player ds time,and not 2 gather kids dis time around.

  15. Jawondo says:

    I want aw 2 buy any plys he like becs he know qualities

  16. Davi says:

    Apparently enrique’s not the best defensively, although that’s never been my impression from watching him. Talented attacker, though, and very quick. Not sure about him.
    Downing would be a step down from the players we currently have. Decent winger but nothing special. I’d be happy if we let liverpool have him.

  17. TrueWisdom says:

    We need Benzema, Samba, Cahill, Stekelenburg. And we should make a bid for Nani from Man Utd

  18. dejosky says:

    mr wenger y, nt show seriouznez 4 once,wat z keepin u 4rm signing playerz bring out thoze money and let get wat we 1.up gunnerz.

  19. Christian says:

    Wenger should have signed ozil when he had the chance! Priority has to be on maximizing fabregas &nasri transfers. Ideal 30 mill pounds for fab plus alcantera, krikic & 25 mill for nasri. Need urgent defensive investment should get mertersarker, wiese (werder) & Cahill ( fair asking price is 12-13mill) Juan mata is good value but bezema is over priced at 27 mill but if included with fab deal might hav been worth it

  20. Abe fred B. says:

    At least arsen winger should no dat the fans are no longer happy wit the current condition of tins.the trophyless season far spent. We need sometin to cheer wit.

  21. Sp says:
