Arsenal target obvious four plus two big midfield signings

Arsenal have made up their minds on four signings but are still contemplating a further two on two big name midfielders. The North London side are close to deals for Gary Cahill, Christopher Samba, Gervinho, and reported goalkeeping target, Ajax’s Maarten Stekelenburg.

The deal for Gervinho is all but completed however they will need to offer a player as part of the package if they want to land Gary Cahill, Nicklas Bendtner had been mentioned but Owen Coyle is not keen on the Dane. A deal between Samba and Arsenal is reaching the all important stages whilst Ajax are wanting to cash in Stekelenburg as soon as possible with just twelve months remaining on his current deal.

Our souce also claims that Arsenal are after two big signings in midfield although no clue was given as to which players exactly. We are also unsure as to whether these player will be brought in on top of Fabregas and Nasri or whether the captain and Frenchman shall be leaving to raise cash for the newcomers.

One likely candidate reported yesterday was that of Daniele De Rossi who has been linked with a move to the Premiership and is seen as a simple fix to plugging the gap left by Fabregas. The other could be that of West Ham’s Scott Parker who apparently favours a move to Arsenal although Newcastle United’s Joey Barton has been linked recently despite the St. James’ Park club not confirming any offers.

    I dont worry so much about a goalkeeper I really like Szczensy! But wouldnt say no to Stekelenburg! Get Samba and Cahill. Let Diaby Denilson Rosicky Fabregas Arshavin and get Parker De Rossi Mata and Oxide Chamberlain. Im not sure how good Gervinho is!!

    do you call scott parker and de rossi big signings? Both of them are old and Will not bring anything but tired legs to Arsenal. I think Arsenal should keep the midfield as it is with wilshere who is stunning in everything he do and then we have song who is a brilliante fighter and also very young. But unfortunately I think Fabregas will leave to f***** Barcelona. But we have great options there anyway, we have nasri, ramsey and gervinho can also have that role and of course we have diaby who can play anywhere in the midfield. And to but steklenburg would also be a disaster to sign if we will sign a new goalkeeper which I don’t think we should we should sign Marseille’s Steve Mandanda who is much younger and in my opinion much more skillfull. But I do think we should buy Cahill or Samba, not both of them! Cause we’ve got vermaelen, koscielny, djourou who all is good, sell squillaci!! And we should spend money on a experienced striker, perhaps benzema or hulk!

    Yes yes yes!!!!!!!!!!!! If it’ s true, then it’ s simply great!!!!!!!!!!

    Buy: Gervinho, Samba, Cahill, Stekelenburg, Parker, if not Barton then De Rossi, Moussa Sissoko, Matuidi and Arturo Vidal

    Sell: Squillaci, Almunia, Fabianski, Fabregas, Nasri, Denilson and MAYBE Diaby

    Other players I’ d like: Robert Green (sell Szczesny), Baines, Honda, Eto’ o

    Also, I forgot Fellaini!

    He’ s a MUST. He’ s gonna give height, strength, stamina and aerial power for set-pieces.

    I thing if dat signing come 2 pass it will be very gud but i don’t think we need keeper this time Manone and scowsheny as show us dat dey can do d job right if dey see gud defender so i think what we need is not gaolkeeper but most important is sign defender and striker.

    Haah, i have been an arsenal fan from birth so i know my club. Arsenal have sign ricky alvarez,gervinho and wish cahill and samba sign because they are decent player. For keeper department, bet me, we are ok. I don’t see parker future near arsenal, yes we need english blood but not desperate. See all we need is to show toughness and stand out to pressure. Our are financially stable, i wish mata to come in for captain

    id like get those four players, we will can enforce the defense, but if you ask me i prefer only sign one center defense and sign two strikers. Even more if we can specify the option to sign any defensive midfielder, like ricky alvarez. Im very surprised for the interest in sign a goalkeeper after see the good performance for our yet headline goalkeeper sczcesny.
