With the Emirates Cup now out of the way, we only have one game left before the season opener against Aston Villa. That game is against Manchester City in Helsinki this Saturday. Will we have any new signings before then? So far, we have only signed Sanogo, a 20 year old injury pron French player who joined as a free agent. The only player that we are after is Luis Suarez and it is quite evident that he wants to join us. The only thing standing in our way is a disillusion man named Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers believes that Suarez is worth as much as Bale, even though Bale hasn’t signed for anybody and is about £50m overpriced. Anyways, we’ll see how this unfolds in the next couple of weeks.
Not much news going on today but Gervinho is now just waiting for his Roma deal to be complete. He completed his medical yesterday and has already stopped for photos with Roma apparel. I for one am very happy to see Gervinho leave. It’s not like he was a bad player, he was just not very good. I hope he does do well in the future as his Arsenal move obviously didn’t work out.
Arsenal have taken some defensive midfielder known as Sebastian Perez on trial. He plays for Atletico Nacional and is 20 years old. This is his time to show what he can do while he trains with the first team. I’m not sure what players have been on trial with the club in the past few years, the only one I remember is Brek Shea, who ended up joining Stoke City. He could be a good player and come into the first team and solve our defensive midfield problems or he could be the next Denilson. We’ll see what happens with him.
As Gervinho will be learning to say in the couple of weeks, Ciao!
