I am hoping, first of all, that the Arsenal transfer news today suggesting that Arsene Wenger is no longer chasing the transfer of the Juventus and Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal is incorrect. The Arsenal boss is famous for keeping his transfer plans from the football media so maybe they are just fishing and the Frenchman is ready to confirm the signing of Vidal once the Copa America is wrapped up next weekend.

But when the source of the news is the Daily Telegraph then it is a lot easier to take it seriously. The paper claims that Wenger has gone off the idea of bringing the all action Chilean to north London because he feels we already have plenty of options in the centre of the pitch with Coquelin, Arteta, Flamini, Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla and the Ox.

When you write that list down you think the Frenchman might be right but I was still really hoping to get Vidal as he is a real winner and can play anywhere in midfield. Maybe Wenger is just keeping his options open as the transfer window does not even open until tomorrow and we do not know which Arsenal stars might pick up an injury before it closes at the end of August.

Will we have a new central midfielder before then?

1 thought on “DAMN! Arsenal give up on Vidal transfer!

  1. Arturo VIDAL is world class player, but i agree with arsene that we dont need himmore quality then what we have
    ask your self what do we need ?
    we need players like Center Back, Devensive Midfilder, and striker, he is not those playrs that we need
    he is centreal midfilder and we have a lott of players in that position,Ramsay and Wilshere are british players young, intelgent, and central midfilders they fight for you untill the last, you bench them and bring 28 yrs player and you distroy them or buy them abroud, every team needs players form that country and we have those so respect them.
    if it’s me
    SIGN :-
    CB: Mehdi Benatia
    DM: William Carvalho
    ST: Marco Reus

    if we sign them i bleve our team selection will be balenced
    may be you surprised why i selected REUS!
    coz we have giroud and welback both they are strong and tall players, so we need difrent player( aguero : dezeko ) ( costa : remey ).
    so reus can play as lone striker wings or number 10 and world class player, and he is big fun of Rosicky.
