Now that Cesc Fabregas has left Arsenal, we need to start looking at who we can bring in to replace him. I have been reading today that people are saying Ramsey will step into Fabregas’ shoes but I do not think he is ready for that just yet. In a couple of seasons time, Ramsey will be a very good player. What made Cesc great was that when he was coming through the Arsenal team he had great players around him such as Henry and Vieira, now who does Ramsey have? No one!
Reports coming out of France today are saying that Marseille are willing to sell France international Mathieu Valbuena to Arsenal.
Valbuena is a quality player capable of playing on the winger or in a more central attacking role. He is described by his former coach at Libourne Saint-Seurin Didier Tholot as “an explosive player who is capable of quickly taking two opponents out of the game to create space, above all due to his dribbling skills.” Due to his small stature, Valbuena is nicknamed le petit vélo, which translates to “the small bike”.
Marseille have not received any offers yet for Valbuena but sporting director Jose Anigo said the club were willing to let him.
“Mathieu has been with this club for six years and we’re willing to open talks if Arsenal want to buy him,” he told RMC.
“We are very pleased with his performances, but we’re ready to listen to offers out of respect for the player.
“However, we have not had contact with Arsenal. Not about Mathieu and not about Andre [Ayew] either.”
Now these are the kind of signings Arsenal should be making. we have been invited to come bid for him so I do not see why Wenger has not done so already! Just take a look at the video below to see what the player is all about. Take a look at his goal against Liverpool, pure class!
