More Rumours Than Hot Dinners
The taersbloids are bored with the Arshavin saga, they have turned their attention to Micah Richards. A player who burst onto the scene is being linked with a £7m move to Arsenal. Micah’s career has gone backwards recently. Arsenal are rumoured to be lining up a bid of £7m, this might work if Kolo Toure is added into the equation.
Leeds United “wonderkid” (aren’t they all, Fabian Delph is rumoured to be subject of an £8m bid from Arsenal. This will continue Arsenal’s strategy of looking for good young British talents, the signing and subsequent first team appearances of Aaron Ramsey will be good publicity for young Delph if wanted to know what will await him at Arsenal.
A new name on the block is French youngster Mohamed Diamewho is at Sapnish team Rayo Vallecano. He is a ft defensive midfielder (the new Vieira!), the snag is he only join Vallecano in the summer. He is years old and will cost €5.5m.
These are all newspaper rumours and as with the past only % of rumours materialise into Arsenal transfers, though all three players will cost the same as Arshavin, so in terms of adding depth to the squad these three will go a long way to achieving this.
