Gallas Agent Admits Arsenal Interest

Gallas Agent Admits Arsenal Interest

Chelsea centre back William Gallas IS rejecting a new deal with the Blues and Arsenal have shown interest according to the players agent.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that Arsene Wenger stated if he could find a centre back you could dual as a left back, then he'd be back in the transfer market. Well it now appears such a player has become available, and he's a very good player.

Gallas' agent Pierre Frelot said: 'William has decided to leave. Arsenal are interested and we have to find an agreement with Chelsea, even if I know they will do everything to keep him. Chelsea have made us a very good offer to sign a new contract but William would like to go and we will see what happens. However, I don't know if Chelsea will agree to sell him to one of their greatest rivals.'

His comments confirm a couple of things:-

1) William Gallas no longer wants to play for the Blues and with one year left on his contract a deal shouldn't be too difficult to broker. The Chelsea boss himself said yesterday that the only reason Gallas is still a Chelsea player is because no-one has made an offer.

2) That Arsenal have shown interest and maybe a part exchange deal with Ashley Cole, who Moaninho has openly expressed an interest in (in more ways than one) could possibly be on the cards.

3) Reading between the lines of Gallas' agents statement, Frelot has practically told us that should Arsenal lodge a bit (or indeed negotiate a part ex deal for Cole) then it appears Gallas would be willing to enter into talks with the Gunners.

The possibility of this transfer would have most Gooners drooling as a back four of Eboue, Toure, Gallas & Clichy would certainly be one of the best around.

Fingers crossed.

Erm.....can you not read?? Whether Arsenal sign Gallas or not is debatable, but it's clear that Gallas does not want to play for Chelsea. So why on earth would you say that you keep him, other than to try and wind people up???

gallas won't come because chelsea are happy to keep players just to stop their rivals getting them. cheats. they buy up all the arsenal targets at huge prices which is why wenger hates mourinho. which is why we should all hate chelsea. not because they buy the finest world talent and then play long ball. anyway, we could have signed gallas from marseille but we didn't rate him then. erreur

oh, and while we're talking about Gallas, what happened to Maureen's quote from ealier last season about 'i will not keep anyone at the club if they want to leave', which has since become 'gallas will not be allowed to leave'. a man of his word. No wonder cole wants to play for him. Cole deserves to play for chelsea. No heart and soul... 'but that's alright, look at all me' notes stuffed in me' burberry wallet!' »»Arsene Knows««
