Wenger Arfa-ter Lyon Winger

Wenger Arfa-ter Lyon Winger

It seems as though Arsene Wenger may be seeking to strengthen his squad in one of it's weakest areas, after admitting taking a fancy to Lyon's winger Hatem Ben Arfa.

Arfa is held in very high regard across Europe and is much sought after by some of the continents premier clubs ........ and Tottenham.

Mr Wenger admitted he'd be interest should the winger become available.

'If Ben Arfa is for sale, then we are very interested,' Wenger told French tv programme Telefoot.

'He is a great player and Arsenal is a potential destination for any great player.'

I think it will be us two fighting it out for him and Benzema. We'll offer something mental like Makalele, Ben-Haim, Malouda, Pizzarro and Belletti plus £45m for him and Benzema. I'd quite like Sidney Govou as well - good player. Wonder how Juninho Pernambucano would get on in the EPL.

LOL Olasal, it wouldnt surprise me. From the little I've seen I'd say Arfa is exactly what we need. You can take Benzema OLASAL, and we'll have Arfa.

As he doesn't know whether Ben Arfa is for sale or not is it safe to assume that he hasn't even bothered to make an enquiry?

I dont believe this quote. Wenger has almost never stated his public interest in a player to the public, not in the last 2-3 years anyway. He is always cagey about new signings.

Its safe to also say we wont buy him. At the end of the day people have half heard of him. We will buy some sierra leone 16 year old who is the next George Weah for 125,000K

If reported acurately, these quotes from AW are very disappointing. Only three days ago he was complaining about Inter tapping up Hleb. Recently he also complained about Bentley's comments about Walcott. We no longer have a leg to stand on in that particular frustration. Talking about other team's players is totally out of order and I hate it when Barca or Madrid announce they are going to sign our players, it's arrogant and disrespectful.

Yeah everyone (even Chelsea fans know the drill now), this is just too good to be true. Ben Arfa is already too famous, i.e. expensive, for Wenger's liking. He's just being nice and complimentary on TV. He only said that cos he knew the player's not for sale, or not for a reasonable enough price anyway. He does say which players are good, e.g. Kaka's exciting, he likes Eto'o, DUH! But not his real transfer targets, as Prits pointed out. I'm inclined to think like Paul_ownz - we'll see a couple of youngsters whose names we can't pronounce, African currently playing in France, or some Eastern European wonderkid from Estonia.
