Armand Traore Joins Juventus On Loan

Armand Traore Joins Juventus On Loan

Arsenal 3rd choice full back, Armand Traore has finalised a season long loan to Italian giants, Juventus.

Traore has struggled to break into the first team for the past few seasons after a string of differing performances. The emergence of fellow left back Kieran Gibbs did little to help Traore's situation.

Traore's Arsenal career peaked when he endeared himself to Arsenal fans by showing up at White Hart Lane with a set of knuckle dusters.

And that's about as far as it goes.

Best of luck to Armand in what will no doubt lead to a permanent move away from Ashburton Grove.

Juve must be desperate if they have signed our third choice LB on loan. But that aside, I hope Armand does well in Turin. I daresay his playing time with us would have been extremely limited with the emergence of Gibbs. Hopefully he gets some good game time in Turin and notches a couple of goals against Citeh in the EL :-)

From what I am led to believe from the training ground, Armand should use his time in Turin to work on his ' attitude '.

I doubt we will see Armand play a competitive game for Arsenal again, he is nowhere near the level of Gibbs or Clichy, or any current Arsenal player on the left. Unlike Eboue he's not a reliable squad player either. Good luck to him though, he's going to need it, the Italians don't mess around, they want players do do a job, it's not the liberal expressionist Wengerball he's had the luxury of playing at Arsenal.

He did look impressive in the carling cup squad of 2007 but since then his defensive capabilities have been exposed and he's been one of the weakest defenders I've seen in an Arsenal shirt. He would be a decent left winger for midtable EPL club or in any other league. He's never going to be left back at Arsenal.
