Gooners Made To Wait For Nasri

Gooners Made To Wait For Nasri

Arsene Wenger's promise of quick signings seems to be fading away after Arsenal have been made to wait for French Whizzkid, Samir Nasri.

It seemed as though The Gunners had had the deal sewn up, then Wenger said he wanted to sign the players before Euro 2008, but now Le Boss claims it will be after.

'Nasri interests me,' said Wenger.

'I hope I will do it after the Euros. It is more complicated now because the wage differences (between the Premier League and Ligue 1) are not as big as they used to be.'

'Just look at Karim Benzema. He is 20 and recently signed a new deal with Lyon.

'England is considered one of the two top leagues and the best players want to play against the best players.'


Arsenal have been gazumped (I love that word) in the transfer market many times, does anyone get the feeling it's about to happen again?

There is some doubt as to whether this is a combined quote. That the statements on Nasri and on wages in France weren't part of the one answer to one question but two answers to two separate questions. In any case the pound has dropped 16% against the Euro over the last 12 months so all European wages will automatically be 16% higher relatively than this time last season. That has to be a factor I guess.

Yeah, arseblog had the clarification yesterday, that these were separate answers to separate questions. Apparently, there is some kind of legal hold up to the deal. Of course, its always possible that another club comes in at the last minute to offer more money and muddy the waters, kinda like what Bayern did with Ribery last summer. We'll just have to wait and see.
