Arsenal need to go out and spend ion the next couple of days and bring in some quality players. This was also echoed by new club captain Robin van Persie. “It’s vital for Arsenal to make signings,” said Robin van Persie after the Champions League play-off victory over Udinese. “We have lost Samir and Cesc, which is very hard for us because those are two great players.”
Arsenal are searching for a new centre-back and we have been linked with the likes of Scott Dan and Gary Cahill but now it is suggested that Arsene Wenger has turned his attention on bringing in Real Madrid’s Raul Albiol.
The Spanish defender is deemed surplus to requirements by Jose Mourinho and thus he may be sold this summer. Albiol is a highly rated defender but he has just not been able to break into the Real Madrid starting lineup. At £8million, Albiol would be a real bargain for us to bring in.
There were suggestions to today that we have bid only £6million for Gary Cahill. There is no way we will be able to sign a player of that quality for such a long fee.
