Following Arjen Robben’s well-pulicised fight with the French playmaker Franck Ribery, it has become clear that the Dutch winger is going to leave Bayern Munich, and it wouldn’t be far-fetched to think that he might come to Arsenal.
Everybody knows that Wenger is looking to further improve Arsenal’s attacking abilities, and Robben is a part of the pair of wingers which is considered to be the best in Europe at the moment along with Frank Ribery.
Robben was just about to sign a contract with Bayern, but after his altercation with Ribery he is now thinking of leaving the club. He said: “Franck knows that he cannot do what he did,”
“These are all things which are not positive and not pretty, therefore I need to consider everything really well.
“We will have to wait and see – there have been lots of recent developments.”
“There are a few different options,” he said. “That is normal when you are at a top club and people know what I am capable of.”
Bayern’s president Uli Hoeness confirmed that Robben’s contract talks were all but over. He said: “All I know is that he was just about to put pen to paper, and now that has all been postponed.”
Robben would be an amazing addition to the Gunner squad, and although it seems a bit hard to bring him to Arsenal, Wenger might take advantage of the situation. The link has been created before between the two sides and they both seem able to benefit from the move, so why not?
