Why Cisse would be a great sigmimg for Arsenal

Of all the transfer talk about Arsenal in the past couple of weeks specifically about strikers, I have not heard anybody mention anything about Newcastle’s Papiss Cisse. Sure, he didn’t have a great season but I think he is perfect for Arsenal at this current time.

If the club cannot sign Wayne Rooney which is looking like the situation today, Wenger’s next top target in my opinion should be Cisse. Arsenal were in the hunt for Gonzalo Higuain and Stevan Jovetic which has calmed down since Juventus got involved and ruined both deals but Fiorentina were wanting around £25 Million for Jovetic which is a pretty high price for Arsenal.

Should Arsenal look to raid Newcastle if the Toon get relegated?

Newcastle United are extremely close to being relegated with their poor form and current position in the table. I think it is entirely possible for them to go down if they don’t start picking up points and if the teams around them do such as Wigan and Sunderland. The Newcastle team is packed with French players that Arsenal have been linked with in the past. The question is, would and should Arsenal move for any of these players if Newcastle were to be relegated?

Let’s start in the defence as we review the players who have been linked with Arsenal in the past.

Arsenal rumour roundup Jan 18th – Kaka, Arshavin, No-one, Dann, Squillaci and Cisse

Reading the Arsenal rumours every morning becomes more and more depressing, especially when you read things like Newcastle signing the classy striker Papa Cisse for just 7m quid. Surely he would have been worth buying as an excellent backup to Van Persie? We have all given up on Chamakh, and Park just seems to have been brought in as a cheerleader……

The repeated rumour that Arsenal are going to try and get Kaka on loan from Real Madrid is just a load of Kaka! Not only has Wenger already said that the Arsenal midfield is already “too crowded”, there is not a hope in hell that Wenger would sanction matching the wages he gets in Madrid. Oh and it started from Caughtoffside…Nuff said!
