Who Is Arsenal's Clark Kent?

Who Is Arsenal's Clark Kent?

After just recieving news that Arsene Wenger wants to sign a 'super, super player or two,' I thought I'd explore the possible targets.

The most obvious is Julio Baptista. I know he is already at Arsenal, but he is only here on loan, so getting him on a permanant deal could be considered a 'super signing.' He certainly has what it takes to be a super player in the Premiership, all he is lacking is a lighter touch and confidence!

Robinho is another probable target. Wenger missed out on the silky Brazilian when he moved to Real Madrid in 2005, after a summer of speculation. He isn't all that different to Alex Hleb, he likes to take players on, has excellent ball retention and he's always looking to take the ball foward.

Of course, Jens Lehmann could still leave. In that event Wenger will probably look to sign a 'keeper. Igor Akinfeev has been heavily linked with Arsenal in recent months. He is probably the best 'keeper of his age in the world. Certainly a Wenger-type player.

Franck Ribery Is a well known long-term target for Arsene Wenger. He has been touted as the next Zidane. Excellent close control, excellent dribbling skills and he is a team player.

They're just 4 possible targets. There are many, many more so get yourself over onto the forum and give us your opinion.

If Wenger is talking about world class players IMO there can only be 2 who fit the bill for Arsenal.......Buffon and Etoo. Anyone else would be potential world class i.e Robinho, should be an interesting summer!

Don't read too much into the headlines...remember Wenger considers Adebayor, Diaby and Walcott world class players or 'super signings' as far as potential...everyone is naming off current superstars here. There's no telling who AW has targeted, that's what makes it most exciting. AW has a great way of recognizing little-known talent that none of us would have even considered for our fantasy pools.

Ah yes...but that being said, I would LOVE to see Ribery on the back of an Arsenal shirt (and not just a custom lettering order through the Arsenal store). AW needs to fill one or two more spots so he says...I'm wondering if Ljumberg is going to create one of those vacancies.

SUX2BU, my thoughts as well. I believe that if Freddie does not accept dropping waaaay down the pecking order, he will leave and it will leave place for a wide player - Ribery, Navas, Alves, Robinho are if not, very close to world class. Jens' heir? Plenty of fine talent out there but only a few world class names. Buffon and Frey come to mind, as well as Boruc (could not resist). But Ribery would be my first choice.

I did not mention Baptista as I can't make up my mind about him. Reyes is 100% not Arsenal so we'll have to wait for that one to unfold. Nice 11 games left, great opportunity to get some more of the 'yes' votes.
