Inler Snubs The Gunners

Inler Snubs The Gunners

Arsenal target, Gokhan Inler has decided to remain with his current club according to his agent, Dino Lamberti.

Arsene Wenger has apparently being looking at the midfielder as a replacement for Mathieu Flamini/Gilberto Silva/Lassana Diarra ..... (You sensing a theme here Arsene?) and even flew out to watch him in action for his national team last week.

However Lamberti says he's decided to remain with Udinese.

Lamberti said: "We have decided that Gogi remains with Udinese. '

"The big step to Arsenal would be purely a bit too early for Inler as a person. Maybe he will be ripe in a year."

He might be ripe in a year Dino, but I'm damn sure we can't wait that long.

Probably a fair bet that his agent has been told we aren't interested in bidding for him.

A bit of misleading title, I think. Inler never snubbed us, there was never an official bid from Arsenal for him. The transfer talk about this player came predominantly from his agent and the press. At one point of time Wenger was asked about him and he said we are looking at options at that position but it doesn't necessarily mean that it is the Swiss boy.

Not really G4L, there doesn't have to be a bid for a "snub" to take place. Any player saying they don't want to play for another team are essentially "snubbing" them. Upon reflection though, I'm positive Amos is right about this.

still, noone ever asked him if he'd play for us or any other club, nor was there interest expressed. he just extended his contract at Udinese and that's it.

Lads. we have Alex Song. He is a much better player than most of those who have been talked about and he is actually a defensive midfielder. I know he can play at CB and all that, but the lad is much better than Eboue, Denilson, Diaby and the likes of Alonso, Barry and Veloso. If Wenger finnally decides to plac Song and Fabregas together, we could have something special on our hands.

Tom14, AW will not choose Song as our first choice DM -- he does not believe Song has the stamina to last an entire season, week in, week out, in the position. Playing a handful of games at tournaments lasting 2-4 weeks does not disprove AW's opinion. AW comes to decisions like that with stats and scientific measurements to back them up. I'm sure we'll see Song as DM for some games, not as first choice tho. AW sees Song as a CB -- I could accept that if only he'd be given regular consistent games in that position.
