Arsenal Clo-Sahin On Nuri

Arsenal Clo-Sahin On Nuri

"There`s no smoke without fire" goes the old adage, and in the case of Nuri Sahin to Arsenal, there`s a sky full of smoke.



Rumour has had it for much of the summer that Arsene Wenger is looking to bring in the Turkish midfielder on loan (possibly with an option to buy) from Real Madrid, and given the confirmation of Alex Song`s departure to Barcelona, the rumours have gathered much more pace this morning.



Despite interest from Liverpool (Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers served under Mourinho at Chelsea, seemingly giving him the, edge) it appears as though Sahin will opt for Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal.



John Cross of the Daily Mirror is one of the more competent journalists out there and has been in action on Twitter over the past day or so claiming the deal should be announced soon.



As Mr Cross points out, Sahin is a completely different player to Song so his signing might not mean the end to our transfer dealings or the French manager could be looking at an alternate set-up.



Whatever happens, Sahin is a player who I admire greatly and would love to see him in the famous red and white (and blue) of my beloved Gunners.

Thay would be the funniest piece of transfer business since Ol' Purple Nose sold us Silvestre.

If Chamakh goes to the spuddys none of my spud mates will ever talk to me again or so they say :) Sahin would be a good player to get and if we get M'Vila or another competent DM we will have had a very good summer regardless of RvP and Song leaving.

Latest report has it the Spuds may get M'villa. But then, we have heard of more incredible stuff lately;-)

The fact that Sahin was willing to hold out for us (pending the sale of Song) says a lot about the Manager's power of persuasion. Liverpool, clearly, wanted him but he made the choice, even as Mourinho wanted Liverpool's fees. Such a story gladdens the heart.

Am I right in thinking we need a 25-man squad? If so, we can't really have Sahin, a defender AND another midfielder like M'Vila, can we?

I love the boy already. I just hope we take him with an option to buy, I'll hate to have a situation where he'll excel with us over the season, and is then snapped up by one of the doped up, sugar daddy propelled clubs. We shouldn't accept to be Madrid's shop window

Gooner Vin we can sign as many players as we want. But we can only name the twenty five in the squad. If that means leaving out Chamakh, Squidworth,Benthner and Park then I cant think of a better way to convince them to take the next offer that comes along...

Rumour mill has it he'll report to the training ground at 4pm today after sealing the deal. Hope it's true.

That will be great news. I kind of like Cheick Tiote and his all-action style. He is bound to be a significant improvement on Song. Why can't we have Coquelin play at RB as a stop gap measure, along with Jenks. They need to start getting games or be shipped out if considered not good enough.
