Arsenal transfer rumour of the day – Geoffrey Kondogbia. Now this is a transfer that I really believe can happen, many newspapers and media sources are reporting this today and it is totally possible.
The 20 year old Frenchman has already been linked with the club several times during the past season because of his magnificent performances for Spanish side Sevilla who have already lost their best player this summer and face losing the rest.
Jesus Navas sealed his move to Arsenal’s rivals Manchester City earlier this summer and now the club’s top scorer and new best player Alvaro Negredo looks to be joining his former team-mate at the Etihad next season. Sevilla face financial problems as most clubs in Spain do due to the country’s current financial situation and the fact that football is becoming a high tax business. These financial problems mean that clubs like Sevilla are being forced to sell their top earners and Kondogbia will be the biggest target after Negredo departs.
Arsenal could pick him up really cheap because of this and solve a big problem that the squad currently has. Defensive midfield.
We all know the situation there and Kondogbia would be a great choice, better than Victor Wanyama who has sealed a move to Southampton. He is extremely young, extremely talented and a little bonus for Arsene Wenger, he’s French.
Add on top of all this is his versatility and you really can not deny that he is a bargain player who can become a world class player.
Imagine in three years if Arsenal picked him up for around £5M and he turns into an even better player than Patrick Vieira was. It is possible, this guy really does have the potential to be better than the legend who led Arsenal to their last trophy back in 2005.
The clock is ticking Mr Wenger, sign him up before the rest of Europe declares interest.
