Arsenal Sign Alvarez ........ Apparently

Arsenal Sign Alvarez ........ Apparently

The president of Serie A side, Palermo, claims his club have been beaten to the signing of Argentine player, Ricardo Alvarez by the mighty Gunners.

Maurizio Zamparini claimed he thought his team were in with a decent shout of signing Alvarez from Vélez Sársfield only to be pipped by Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal.

'We did have a concrete bid for Alvarez and had him in our grasp back in January,' he told Radio Kiss Kiss.

'Unfortunately, we didn't complete the move in time, so we lost him to Arsenal. At this moment he has already signed for the Gunners.'

If this turns out to be true I can`t be sure how I feel about it, as I know little, to eff all about this player. You keep seeing "highly rated" plastered about everywhere, but they said that about Francis Jeffers, so if and when this materialises, I`ll reserve my opinion for when I see him play.

In the mean time if any VA members have the skinny on Alvarez, please do post your thoughts in the comments section. Ta.

The Palermo president is pretty fast and loose with the truth. He told two different radio stations two different things. He told one we'd signed him and the other we were interested. Zamparini is a bit of a character.

Lost in translation ... or just a bit of a tool? Either way, whether this happens or not I'm not going to mind.

Nah, legit quotes. Just both said a slightly different thing. Whatever, it's almost certain we're in for him. It's just a case of whether we're certain to sign him I'd say.

I see posts in our forums from a couple of days ago saying there were rumours we'd already signed him. Looks like there might be some smoke to go with the fire. Anyone know what sort of player he is?

I've seen him play in the copa libertadores where Velez had a pretty decent run in the competition and also won the Clausura(domestic league..kinda).Quite a good dribbler/close and control he looked sound technically and physically but not much of a sprinter,so i doubt he will play on the wings.He didnt stand out and strike me has a perfect Wengerball player but having seen Ricky play more im sure he will be a positive signing.
