Arsenal to clear last deadwood – making room for……?

Yesterday Arsenal finally brought another player into the squad, with former Gunner Mathieu Flamini re-signing for the club on a 3 year deal worth £40k a week. And now the news could get even better with rumours suggesting the last remaining piece of deadwood (Bendtner aside) could be leaving the club for France.

Firstly my opinion on Flamini signing is a mixed one. Although I’m glad we now have another option to field and his experience will hopefully help us through the struggle, I am not particularly happy with the club making another free transfer and still not spending any money. What I also didn’t like was the fact, Arsenal were praising it up, especially on their twitter account, bombarding the fans about his signing as if we had just signed Messi or something.

Gervinho could soon join the dead wood leaving Arsenal

Marseille have contacted Arsenal about a possible loan deal for struggling Gervinho with a view to a permanent move in the future. Arsenal have already cleared out most of the “deadwood” this summer and Gervinho is seen by fans as one of the next players who must go because of his poor form since he arrived at the club.

Sebastian Squillaci, Andrey Arshavin and Denilson have already left the club which has freed up the wage bill a bit to fund moves for new players, which is why Arsenal seem to be active at the moment in the transfer window.
