Fabregas Fancies Alonso Link-up

Fabregas Fancies Alonso Link-up

Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas says he'd love to link up with fellow Spaniard, Xabi Alonso at club level and hopes that Gunners gaffer Arsene Wenger will seal the deal this summer.

The Gunners have lost a large number of high profile experienced players in recent seasons and Fabregas believes it's time to add some extra quality, and thinks Alonso would be the perfect partner.

'We have lost big players, but the boss knows what he is doing,' said Fabregas.

'The days of signing a new player aren't finished. We need someone in the middle to make competition and make a difference, plus give us a new dimension. I think that is all we need. The rest is perfect.'

'Xabi would be great. He's experienced and can score goals. I'm sure the boss is aware of that fact.'

After a couple of transfer windows trying to lure Alonso to North London I really can't see this one materialising, especially after Xabi had a blinding season as was arguably one of Liverpool's best players ....... not to mention the fact that Rafa has already said he doesn't want to sell.

Still, this time of year is always about dreaming eh Cesc?

I think this will depend much in Barry. If liverpool get Barry i can see us getting Alonso. If not we might get Barry. I dont think Liverpool would just let him leave unless they had a world class replacement in place first

You can take the boy out of Barcelona but you can't take the Barcelona out of the boy I suppose. Talking about other club's players grinds my gears somewhat. Jesus I hate close season, someone wake me up in August. *Hits snooze button, rolls over and snores like a champion*

Not as much as me. Being infront of a PC all day i probably look at the newsfeed 10 times a day. When you spread that over 10 weeks with news, reports, interviews changing every hour. Its easier said than done to not look at the feeds though...

the news feeds are doing my head in...problem is i'm hooked. dont know how to stop reading all the rubbish out there...its so silly speculating about Barry/Alonzo so early...only for them not to come in. it would be so good to tap into Wengers thoughts right now..who knows he may just be thinking of what wines to purchase for the summer..lol

There is a big chance that'll happen but Rafa has said Alonso will not leave. And when Rafa says a player will not leave, that player does not leave!

Benitez has consistently denied there is a chance of Alonso moving on. He's just had arguably his best season for Liverpool. But in any case, why would the Scousers sell to Arsenal? There would be a queue of clubs offering more cash than Arsenal would.

thats why i don't really see this happening number14. Alonso didn't really play the defensive/tackling role for pool this year (that was Mascherano). Don't get me wrong, Alonso is great at what he does... we just don't really need him. Unless of course Aresene is planning on playing a 433 the whole time next year.
