You have to laugh at times when you come across some of the transfer rumours making the rounds this summer. The latest one today involving Arsenal is a player coming in for a change rather than the continual talk of who is leaving Arsenal. Footybunker (who I do not trust at all, but make for enjoyable reading) are suggesting that Arsene Wenger is lining up a shock summer move for French international winger Franck Ribery.

Now if this rumour is true at all, this would be a good buy for Arsenal in my opinion especially if Fabregas and / or Nasri leave, we need another big name marquee signing to come to the club and Ribery fits the bill.

As Ribery is now 28-years-old he would provide the kind of experience we need in the squad. Ribery was rated as one of the hottest players in Europe a few seasons back and I believe he still has it in him to be a world class player. Ribery must be frustrated at Bayern Munich right now as the German giants seems to be slipping away as they did not win the Bundesliga and not doing well in the Champions League last season. Maybe a new change is what Ribery needs after 4 years at the club.

A fee of £22million is being mooted and in today’s transfer that is not too bad for a player of Ribery’s quality. What do you think of the possibility of Ribery joining Arsenal? Good or bad move?

  1. Adewale says:

    I think Ribery will be a good buy and also a perfect replacement for the departing fabrigas and contract rebel nasri.But we still need a defender either CAHILL or SAMBA.

  2. yinka says:


  3. spyder says:

    Just one of those jokes, no way this would even be considered by the arsenal so no time to be wasted on this creativity

  4. Afen says:

    Yes get him,cahill,vidal,benzema,oxlade-chamberlain,enrique.

  5. Wiz101 says:

    Good signîng 4 arsenal

  6. Nii says:

    i think wenger should finish with cahill befor talking about another player

  7. Diane Lancaster says:

    He is a bit injury pron for my likening would rather have Mata !!!!!

  8. Salako ademola says:

    Is this rumour to make arsenal fans happy?We’ve not bought cahill,jagielka,samba nd we are talking about ribery.Wenger is a funny man.

  10. Afen says:

    Well He should get him,cahill,enrique,vidal,oxlade-chamberlain and benzema

  11. charles says:

    If wenger will sign frank it will be an historic event for wenger to sign such a big name.otherwise it is good for him to do so.

  12. This is good idea, is nice to see frank at arsenal..

  13. Sisay abegaz says:

    I want more sinings for arsenal

  14. gooner4Life says:

    buying ribery wud be a waste of money. In my opinion our midfield is strong enough with song nasri wilshere gervinho arshavin and all them, what we need is 2 top central defenders.

  15. Sulaimon says:

    Buy better player like juan mata,ribery

  16. young_gunnerz says:

    Ribery is rubbish. I would rather have Robben than a player that dissapears in big matches. Why is it that we are only linked with french players or players playing in france. Wenger! there are many more leagues and countries around the world!

  17. I will like tn see ribery play for my dear arsenal not the solution to our problem with a good defender like cahil or sambar to make the defence stronger than before and a replacement for clich.

  18. donn gun says:

    im feed up wit al dis crap its time put us out of or misire an tell us if we goin buy or not

  19. mussy boy says:

    if and when cesc leaves, there is only one player in the world that can take his place, arda turan, galatasaray midfield general, he is faster than cesc,trickier,heading ability,shooting, tackling and not as injury prone as our el capitan. and to top it cheaper as well.

  20. murisoh says:

    wenger should get serious otherwise fans will be disappointed

  21. murisoh says:

    we need to get trophy nxt season thats why we need a stronger and a serious team.we are counting on you wenger

  22. Ridwan says:

    I think wenger should buy central defender to solve this problem

  23. barrpo says:

    I doubt this is true. If it was to happen I wouldn’t mind as he is a quality player and maybe could also be a reason for Nasri to sign a new contract.

  24. Dolapo Ojekoya says:

    How will i believe such a rumour he has neva buy a defender dt we needed most it’s only vermalen and kolchelny we have as world class defender we need at least one or two defender august 13t is around d corner we’ve neva sign any defender mr wenger there is no execuse dis time around.

  25. adesuko babatunde says:

    I think d aquisation of frank ribery is a very good one but he his prone to injury unless if d club can manage him properly

  26. Anayo Chimezie says:

    We have been linking to many player but to buy is the problem, so let wenger be seriours.

  27. willybilly says:

    I hope that this is a LIE.

    For a start we have plenty of wingers, especially with Gervinho.

    He is very injury prone. not what we need!

    He has something of the night about

    Plus why would a player linked with Madrid a year ago for 70 million, be now worth 25 million?? Seems a bit dodgy to me.

    We need a genuine striker, Benzema would be much better, and would command a similar price and probably want less wages as he is younger and still has a lot to prove.

    For me, I hope that if there is any truth in these rumours I hope that it is a classic wenger smokescreen, because al my gooner instincts say this is a bad move for us.

  28. TrueWisdom says:

    I’d rather sign Messi

  29. Tazlent says:

    ha hahahaaha!!! Ribery u must be joking its like treating for a cough yet you’ve got malaria.

  30. kenilson Wasike says:

    A good buy but it will be nul and void
    if no defender is bought!

  31. edwin says:

    Just sign da playa nd sign a lot oda talent cause itz time we spend money nd win some trophies

  32. Wenger should buy Vidal, Samba,Craig Gordon and keep Nasri but sell Fabregas

  33. Precious says:

    Wenger is a fool
