Nasri Sale Agreed, Where Do We Go From Here?

Nasri Sale Agreed, Where Do We Go From Here?

Arsenal Football Club today announced they have agreed terms with Man City for the sale of Samir Nasri.

Arsene Wenger had "threatened" to use Samir Nasri in tomorrow`s CL qualifier in an attempt to hurry up Manchester City, and it appears to have worked as the two clubs have now come to an agreement subject to personal terms and a medical.

I`ve be very pro-sale of Nasri for quite sometime as 20 odd million pounds for a player who doesn`t want to be here and is in the last year of his contract is an extraordinary piece of business.

However it only becomes good business if that cash is immediately reinvested into the squad, and I`m just not sure that`s going to happen.

We have lost three first choice players this summer, two of them our most creative players (indeed in the 3 games so far this season we have looked completely devoid of ideas) without replacing any of them.

Wenger needs to act fast to replace these men or he will quickly find Arsenal fans asking for a new manager, and it pains me to say I could well be one of them.

It's not done yet. Diaby could attempt to give him a farewell hug and snap his leg again. I think "where we go from here" is simple. Wenger needs to pull his thumb out and buy some effin players. Right now. There will not be bargains waiting for us as teams know we are in desperate straits and flush with money. That's what happens when we wait til the final ticks of the transfer window. Well done, Arsene, well done. I still believe he is the man to take us forward but my faith is wavering.

30 million in the transfer kitty, another 30+ from Cesc and 20+million from Nasri. More than £80M to spend. If we don't spend most of that money on quality players, then we're f***ed. Wenger will be f***ed. I'm actually struggling to believe that we won't spend lots of that lovely cash, but the longer this goes on the more likely it becomes.

The club have painted themselves into a corner here with only a week to go for the transfer window closes. Lets see how they respond to this situation. The price of all our targets will increase but we have no choice but to buy quality.

We had little choice with Nasri refusing to sign a new contract. I say sell him to City (since they are willing to pay the stupid money) and now bullishly force the hand of teams with players that interest us. If we get beyond Udinese, all can be well again.

To think the only reason Wenger chose to wait for this period to get very active was to get bargains. So much for that now as we will be deemed to be 'loaded' and desperate.

Come on Samir and join a team of winners, it will be a nice surprise to leave behind the chokers who will struggle to even get into the Chmpions League this year. Pity you didn't join last season as you would be a FA Cup winner rather than playing for a team of trophyless loser.

I have just tweeted the same sentiment Delta. We're going to have to pay over the odds for some players, but it's Wenger's fault for letting us get into this situation, he's going to have to swallow his pride this time and open that wallet extra wide. Arsenal fans have been stung by massive price hikes only to see the team capitulate and then sell most of our best players. If Wenger thinks simply saying "trust my judgment" is going to work then he has clearly lost it. In a weeks time if we haven't brought in proper quality, then this negative atmosphere he thinks Gooners have been creating is going to be nothing compared to the s*** storm heading his way.
