Wenger Raid On Chelsea??
Reports are rife this morning that following Arsenal's top class display at Old Trafford at the weekend, Arsene Winger is storming into the transfer market as he launches his rebuilding programme. His main target is..... Chelsea.
He has apparently lined up an £8million move for our French midfielder Florent Malouda and has already offered £7m for our Brazilian centre-back Alex. It doesn't stop there - he is also apparently and is keen on his midfield team-mate Yossi Benayoun.
Now I, for one thing, think this is all a bit odd, but I do believe that we will see some departures today and tomorrow. Benayoun seems to be on his way out and I wouldn't be surprised if Kalou could also follow.
Could Kalou be used as part of a make-weight deal for Modric? Would we really sell Alex and Malouda to Arsenal?
The price seems very BAD business if it happened, but watch this space folks - will be an interesting day or two.
