Toure or Gallas
Arsenal have turned down Kolo Toure’s transfer request, for the moment. It appears that Kolo Toure has fallen behind Gallas, Djourou and Silvestre in Wenger’s mind. Furthermore, Gallas and Toure appear to have clashed recently and are not on talking terms.
Wenger appears to have backed Gallas and Toure sat on the bench against Portsmouth whilst Silvestre was given yet another chance at centre-back.
Manchester City are rumoured to have Toure on their radar, and a bid of £14M will be too tempting for Arsenal.
Such a move will be a backward step for Arsenal and another departure that will horrify and leave Arsenal fans bewildered.
A more sensible move will be to transfer Gallas to Juventus and bring in Chllieni from Juventus. Gallas and Silvestre are both short-term players, with no futures beyond the summer, whilst Toure has several seasons ahead of him.
