Chamakh talks ended by Wenger – Rosicky, Kalou?!

In Arsenal FC on August 4, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

Afternoon guys,

yesterday I made my thoughts on Wenger’s pursuit of Chamakh very clear, I don’t think we need him, there are more pressing issues to be resolved, mainly our lack of a center back and defensive midfielder.

Bordeaux have tried to con 10-12 million quid out of us, and considering that in five months Chamakh will be free to talk to any club with a view to a free transfer, they have been rather stupid. This Bordeaux chairman doesn’t seem the brightest bloke in the world, after Sunderland bid for Chamakh he practically laughed in their face…. then went and overpriced him by about 60-70% in my opinion.

Wenger has admitted that he has ended the talks between the two clubs:

“In the current context, to me, it is over. Let’s say that at the moment it is terminated.

Now Arsene, lets go and get the defensive re-enforcements we need. If we start leaking goals at the start of the season like we were doing throughout last season there will only be one person to blame, Arsene, and I’m one of his biggest fans. Throughout his tenure at Arsenal he has never really stood out for his defensive nous. I am confident we will buy, but hopefully it is in the areas we need. That isn’t the striking department.

Hence the link with Salomon Kalou in this mornings The Sun. We made a bid for him last summer and the stories re-emerged in January after Kalou praised the boss. Luckily, it seems that the story is just fiction. I hope so.

Most of the stories running today circulate around Phil Senderos who’s transfer to Everton has been a done deal since Saturday, when I first published the story after info from Arseblog.

Rosicky wants to get back to international football.…oh christ. We all know what that means. Ever the optimist, me.

One last thing for today, what area do we most need to strengthen in? Defensively? (Defence + Defensive midfield) or attacking wise? (strikers, wingers etc.)

Thats your lot for today.

More tomorrow.

  1. I totally agree we need to strengthened our defensive. CB and DM. I also frustated all i read only chamakh and kalou will in and senderos will out.
    I agree we can sell senderos and maybe gallas and silvestre or even eboue but in return we must buy 1 good CB plus 1 young talented CB and off course young talented right back to cover for sagna. I think that turkish giant can do and bassong can be a cover for sagna.
    1 more young CB must be around there.
    DM is a must Matuidi can be a good one plus the return of viera will help until our youngters better.
    Striker? We can add if we can get good bargain for young talented striker and maybe chamakh and kalou will do.
    Most of all please sign CB and DM.

  2. Yo Dude,

    Sorry about the other day man. I’d like to apologise for my idiotic behaviour. It’s probably coz I’m a yank.

    Anyway, check out my new site:

    See ya!

  3. fuck the arsenal

  4. Fuck you, cunt.

  5. up the spurs

  6. FUCK OFF U STUPID YID 10 YEARS AND YOU STILL CANT BEAT US IN THE LEAGUE

  7. las whys that yid got a cock on his shirt oh sorry thats their crest

  8. arsenal to give any money to there best players…cesc talked to me and said that he was going to barcelona of the 1st of july 2010

  9. Wenger’s callin their bluffs, Bordeaux. This is the hardball Wenger & he’s after dat guy. u cant exactly call GBP 6m ‘derisory’ for Chamakh as they are doing. If that falls thru though I’d rather he went for some other striker whose name’s not Kalou, we cld do without another “Dribillymcnogoals @ d moment. borrowing dat name goonblogger, haha…..it’s dead funny too!

  10. Good to see you back Kunle!

  11. Not defensive minded? Didn’t we go a whole season unbeaten? Trust in Wenger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Shame about chamahk, but i don’t think kalou is the answer(he’s 23 but he’s same type as theo). Bordeaux have just blown this one, how many times does wenger have to demonstrate he wont mess about in the market? Hopefully we can pick him up for free in January then. What a shame.

  13. I would like to see Chamakh at Arsenal, not many people realise that he works very hard for the team and knows defensive duties, plus he has height which arsenal need. If wenger signs matudi and a CB and maybe chamakh then i think this season is ours lads

  14. It will be better 4 arsenal to sign salomon kalou if they want their forward to be strong

  15. what will happen to jay simpson? that guy has tenacity and strength and if properly motivated an dbacked he is a bull just JET if not better we need him in the 1st 15 he is a tempo raiser when neede a la tevez with that and praying everyone satys fit we need no other striker. but we need not to sell but buy 2 defenders and a cdm then we can cry uhuru! keep gunning Gunners we r up for it. cheers!love from Nigeria.

  16. We have LOADS of attacking type players. If anything, we need a natural goal scorer/poacher in case Eduardo gets injured. Neither Kalou or Chamakh are prolific enough. We still REALLY need a tall centre back.

  17. I was never gone goonblogger.
    @ Asher: u can go on abt wat’s goin to happen to Freeman, Benik Afobe and bla,bla bla but let’s sign proven players & still continue to be a selling club with those chaps & dat’s not saying we shldnt keep any of them deemed fit for our club.

  18. we don’t need Chamakh (well we do for free 🙂 ) and we don’t need Kalou either, I think we can wait until December to really see chat the team needs

  19. please wenger get us two more players to make this incoming season asuccess

  20. WANGER BUY TO WIN THE TROUFER

  21. wanger am tanzanian people we are suddely to see arsenal fail to win any title even carlin cup mr wanger make us happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  22. hi Meena, Mr Wanger sounds more like Mr “Wanker” to me than “Wenger”. lol

  23. PROF, MAKE US TO LAUGH THIS SEASON BY ADD MORE POWER TO YOUR TEAM. TO ME, KALOU’S BID WILL BE THE BEST AT THIS TIME. CONSIDER INJURY IF YOU ARE TELLING US THAT YOU ARE OKAY WITH THE CURRENT SQUAD.
