Well, the 19-year-old lad dubbed ‘The New Messi’ that is ……. How many times have players been referred to as ‘The New X, Y Z’? Too many to mention and seldom do they come anywhere near the player they are likened to! Just look at Diaby!
I stole this from one of the reports yesterday, just hope there is no copyright 🙂
Arsenal are being linked with a move for Barcelona youngster Guy Assulin.
The 19-year-old playmaker has earned rave reviews for his performances in the Barcelona B team, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to make another move for a youngster in Spain.
Assulin has already made his debut for the Israeli national team despite failing to earn an appearance for the senior side at the Nou Camp, and the teenager is thought to be getting anxious about this lack of first team opportunities.
Wenger has previously signed Fran Merida and Cesc Fabregas from the junior ranks in Catalonia, but with Merida signing for Atletico and Fabregas poised for a move to Barca, the Frenchman is looking to bring some new blood to the Emirates.
Spanish daily Sport report that the Gunners will intensify their interest ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window on June 1st. The paper also reports that Chelsea are taking a look at the youngster, although Carlo Ancelotti isn’t expected to move for the player this summer.
Previously dubbed ‘the new Messi’, Guardiola is believed to be keen to keep hold of the precocious talent, although will struggle to keep him happy in 2ªB Group 3 and away from La Liga.
Well, he’s not Spanish, so that’s promising, and he’s not just out of his nappies, so I don’t really mind if we sign this guy, as long as he is in addition to what we NEED!
Talking of Barca, which we seem to be doing far too much of lately, Goal.com reported last night that they now want Eboue!!
Well Arsene, stick a 20M price tag on his head and take the money if they want him!
Seriously, I am getting sick and tired of Barca, so many of their players have really slated us and the teams lack of fight, why oh why then do they want our players??
I was pleased to hear that Scottish man (don’t know his name) talking to Sky Sports yesterday, he said Arsenal have put a 70M (ish) price tag on Cesc, but he said Barca will offer 43M Euros and Yaya Toure. I would rather we took the money and bought players who wants to come to Arsenal, Toure has too often turned us down, he’d be another ‘sulk’ and would soon look to move on, so maybe it’s best we leave him well alone! Only a few days ago he has supposed to have said he would rather join his brother at Citeh!
Another player who has bantered around on most blogs as a ‘must buy’ defender is Gary Cahill. Bolton boss Owen Coyle has said that he doesn’t want to lose his player but an offer or£14 million would be impossible to turn down. I don’t think that’s an unreasonable amount of money to ask for an English defender so lets hope Arsene Wenger feels the same. The club have a good rapport these days having loaned Wilshere to them so maybe we will be Coyles first choice club to sell to.
Didn’t watch the England v Mexico match last night and by all accounts I didn’t miss much. Haven’t seen any rave reviews about Walcott or Vela either so I’m glad I didn’t bother…
Anyone see how Hart played? Is he good enough to displace Almunia or Fabianski? 😉
Have a good day all, maybe the next one through the door will be Gary Cahill….
