Chamakh Will Sign Only if Adebayor Leaves
Adebayor holds the key as to whether we see two or more players move to Arsenal this summer. Unlike last season when Wenger was determined that Adebayor will not leave, this season he is “easy” with the situation. In fact I have never known Wenger “tout” a player as he has done with Adebayor this season.
Earlier this summer, Wenger said he would have qualms about selling Adebayor to Chelsea. The other day in an interview Wenger said, “If he [Adebayor] does not want to stay, he will leave. But I think that he will be still at Arsenal this season.”
Last week AC Milan said they had a “friendly” conversation with Arsene Wenger about Adebayor.
The signs are there for all to read and if Adebayor was astute he would realise that Wenger is happy to sell him and if he does not go this summer, he no longer guaranteed a starting place and will have to compete with van Persie, Bendtner and Eduardo next season.
So much is Wenger prepared or ready to let Adebayor that in the same radio interview, when asked if he is interested in Maraoune Chamakh, Wenger said, “Yes but only in the event of a departure.”
Adebayor will generate a transfer fee in the region of £20 million – £25 million, whilst it is widely reported that the Moroccan striker is available for around £8 million.
I expect some movement on the Adebayor front before we leave for Austria in a couple of weeks time.
