No Chamakh, Huntelaar … Gignac next?

In Arsenal FC on January 2, 2010 by Highbury N5 Editor

The only names going round at the moment seem to be strikers…

In the last few days Wenger firstly ruled out a move for Marouane Chamakh, once Wenger walked away from him in the summer there was very little chance of him ever going back, at least, whilst he would cost money to sign. In the summer it could be a different story as he will be a free agent.

Klaas jan Huntelaar is a player who is wildly over-rated. He has an outstanding goalscoring record in Holland … but so did Alfonso Alves. He then moved to Real Madrid and when he played, he did well and scored goals, but in my opinion, he is still unproven at the highest level. OK, he is now at AC but has hardly had a kick all season and to be fair his international football goals to games ratio is very good but in a team who can produce chance after chance he isn’t exactly in a team of muppets.

Huntelaar would also cost a lot of money and considering the boss very rarely does loan deals for players I would say we have zero chance of seeing him in Arsenal colours.

So who is left … the Carlton Cole noises have died down and I don’t think he is that great. He may be in the England squad but people are calling for Bobby Zamora to be in the squad. Really does show just how poor the national teams pool of talent is in attacking areas.

The only other player I can think of is Gignac, he is also unproven at the top level though. Its a tricky one for Arsene, there are hardly many players out there good enough to fill our striking needs, at the right price.

Oh, and don’t even mention Dzeko, far too expensive.

I repeat what I wrote a while ago, I don’t think we will sign a striker this month.

what do you think? comments are always welcome …

  1. You are only the thinking the right way. Cause i always thinks who will feel the absent of robin van persire. My answer is no. ARSEN is not ready to buy at high rate.
