Will Arsenal break the bank to secure Arjen Robben?

One of Arsenal’s more eccentric transfer targets, Arjen Robben, confirmed again that he’s just as likely to accept a transfer away from Bayern Munich as he is to extend his contract with the Bavarian team.

Arsene Wenger is still looking for offensive reinforcements and Robben is reputed to be one of the best wingers in the world, so a move would be possible if we think that Robben only has one year left of contract.

“It cannot be said that I am 100 per cent certain I will stay with Bayern.” Robben said.

“A lot has happened in recent weeks and I didn’t play for three games in a row. Everybody saw that. It was not the best of times.

“It is not as if I have to sign a new deal next week. I am just concentrating on playing football. I still have a year on my contract with Bayern so there is no rush. You never know what happens in football – it is often very strange.”

Most would argue that Arseal don’t have the money needed to transfer Robben who would surely have some very high wage requirements, but given the urge Wenger showed to finally create a top team anything may be possible. If he’s able to break the wage barrier for RVP, why not Robben? He is surely in the same class as his fellow Dutchman.

    Not needed, we have Gervinho, Ox, Ryo & Theo and he selfish player imo always thinks he can take on a team single handed and I would prefer Wenger to spend the money else where – two strikers and a back-up keeper to Szechny.
