Is Samba trying to force a move to Arsenal?

The big Blackburn defender Christopher Samba has often been lauded as exactly the type of player that Arsenal need to shore up the shaky defence, and he has been linked with the Gunners for over a year now.

He tried to persuade Rovers to let him leave in the summer, but once Phil Jones joined Man Utd, Samba became a neccesity for Steve Kean. But now Samba is pulling out all the stops to persuade Blackburn to let him go this week.

Samba recently threatened to go on strike, and today he has made it clear that he will never again be committed to the club. He said: “Force me to stay and I’ll never be able to give 100 percent to you again’.

“When a couple don’t get on they get a divorce — and that’s what me and Blackburn have to do.”

“Blackburn need players who are 100 per cent for the club — and I’m not.

“The only way to solve this is for them to let me go. It will be very difficult for me to play for this team again.

“I’m at the end of the road here. I’m not going to change so, for their good and mine, they must sell me now.”

Samba was linked with QPR, but they have since brought in Onoahu and Taiwo, and probably don’t match Samba’s ambitions anyway. This leaves Arsenal and Tottenham as possible buyers. Both Redknapp and Wenger have stated they will NOT buy a defender this month, but it is surely time for Wenger to panic-buy right now, and Samba would be a brilliant addition to the team.

Surely Samba wouldn’t be so forceful with Blackburn unless he knew exactly where he was going. But is it to Arsenal?

    Wenger should get chris samba because he fights for his club to win, good defence, good stamina,balance and etc. He should also get players like poldosik and harzard in this summer. So we’r begging u to get this team back like it use to be in 2004 to 2008.
    Thanks and I would u to reply and see wat u have for the fans.

    We should stop wasting our time, Wenger will not sign anybody, the team will not make the first first, even 5 and 6 will not be easy for this team. It is either they board changes Wenger since they cannot sack him, or the team will continue to move downwards. Next season, the team will be struggling to make the top 10.

    Wenger will not buy Samba, no chance, vermalean is back, koscielny is performing brilliantly, gibbs is back and sagna is back

    lucky for samba he’s not playing under a coach like mancini or fergie; with comments like those towards his own club, he would be playing his football on the bench for ever

    Mr Wenger,we d Arsenal fans down here in Nigeria really have faith in you!! We are only beggin you to bring in a few big names,like Hazard,Podolski,Sow,Dembaba,Kaka.
    If three or four of this players are brought into the club..Arsenal ll surely contest for a sliverware..the likes of Rambo,Dj,wallcott,Benayoun won’t get us anywhere..

    If wenger want to do anything let him do january transfer close, because see arsenal fc not to be champion league it may very bad for arsenal fan. God bless all arsenal fans all over the world.

  9. C. Samba,is a fighter,he hates defeat,a goal scorer,he gingers,he’s intelligent n a LEADER etc.I cnt wait 2 c my best defender wear n man, my defence.It wil b a dream kom tru.WENGER,bring Samba 4me n ve my unborn kids support ARSENAL 4EVA.Fans beg him.

  10. Yes he must join arsenal defense to have a solid defense. Even wenger said he will not buy any defender in January, right now he must think twice. Samba is a strong man who can help Thomas varmaen and Matersacker to strength the defense. I would like to ask Wenger to sign samba immidiately before he changes his decisions. Totenham also wants to sign him but let’s arsene wenger do quickly and bring samba. He is needed into our squad. Remember we must fight for the fourth place this season, chelsea is 5 point clearly above arsenal, liverpool and new castle are behind nearly arsenal. So, let’s arsene wenger fight for signing samba as arsnenal supporters we will be happy. Leon Trotsky.

    I best wish would be for Wenger to sign Samba….Arsenal would stay for a long time without having any defensive problem again. We would have two very tall defenders…it would be a plus to the team

  12. Dworld says:

    I love samba very well,wenger should sign him to end d rift btw him and rovers and with d inclusion of podoski.and release djoru,squillaci,diaby,and d dead players.
