Should Arsenal take Gareth Barry on a free transfer?

Well, I’m not sure this is the kind of news I want to hear but it has been reported that Arsenal wants the on-loan Everton midfielder Gareth Barry. While the deal is still a long shot, due to Roberto Martinez’s desire to keep Barry, the Englishman might actually want to move to the Emirates in the summer.

In all likelihood, we are going to the Champions League (at the expense of Everton), and the experienced midfielder might be tempted by that fact.

Should Arsenal take Flamini or Barry?

First of all, I think that Arsenal should be trying to complete the transfer of a player in the class of Marouane Fellaini of Everton or Lars Bender of Bayer Leverkusen, but as the Rolling Stones once said, you can’t always get what you want.

Two players who have been mentioned recently in transfer rumours with the Gunners are Gareth Barry from Manchester city and now our former player Mathieu Flamini. The 29-year old Frenchman is seeking a return to the Premier League, as long as it is with a club that will challenge for the title.
