Arsenal Leads Liverpool In The Race For Ba

After a few amazing appearances in the Premiership for Newcastle United, 26-year-old Senegal striker Demba Ba has caught the eye of numerous big clubs and Arsenal are rumoured to be going against Liverpool for the signature of the striker.

Ba has a £10 million release clause so it wouldn’t be hard for neither Arsenal nor Liverpool to meet the transfer fee, but according to Toon officials the striker won’t be leaving the club any time soon.

“We have talked to both the player and his agent and they have insisted that Demba Ba is happy here and has no intention of leaving.

“He was married the day before he arrived here and his family are settled on Tyneside.”

Liverpool wants to get Ba as a replacement for Suarez who will spend quite a while off the pitch, and Arsenal needs a replacement for Chamakh who hasn’t been finding his pace lately and is expected to leave either during this month or in the summer with Bordeaux and PSG on his tail.

The single questions which still needs answering now is whether Ba would make a good striking couple with Robin Van Persie who is accustomed to play next to a target man as he does the same at the Netherland national squad where he plays next to Huntelaar.

    Mr. prof Wenger, why do u love it when u break our heats? we have a good chance of doing well in the champs league only if u use this transfer window wisely. why are u always reluctant to spend?

    Demba Ba is good. He was good last season as well. We could have had him for free at the before this season started but as usual we act (AFC) like sheep and make a move when all the other clubs make their move. Its to late now, we wont be signing any rated player in this transfer period other than T Henry.
    I cant understand why we did not sign Scott Parker and Dember Ba.
    We had nothing to loose annd alot to gain.
    The leaders at AFC needs to wise up quickly because right now it’s looking like another dry year.
    THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE!

    Demba Ba, a great striker, i ask myself, why didn’t Wenger go for him in the summer? i was very impressed with him when he played for west ham, he would have been a great striker for us…but forget seeing him in an Arsenal shirt ..so letme laugh at that HA HA HA !!

    Hi Arsene wenger and officials of Arsenal Fc board,we will like to see striker Ba partner with Robin in Uefa champion league and the English Premier league as well.Ten million pounds is not too much for the third richest club in the world like Arsenal. Please try everything possible to sign Ba and Podoski as well. Even if Arsenal will have to pay fifteen million pounds for striker like Demba Ba,the player is worth that amount as he is a born goal scorer that will help Robin Van Persie with the Goal scoring burden.
