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?
