Rafa and Arsene are set to go head to head for one of the hottest properties on the market, but would such a large bid make sense for someone little known prior to this season? and could this star become a very costly mistake in the Bianchi and Maccarone mould?
Arsenal and Liverpool have supposedly joined the race to sign £19m valued Palermo striker Amauri (Sky Sports). Real Madrid, amongst others, are also believed to be keeping a close check on the situation.
The 27-year-old Brazilian has had a great season with Palermo and was effective at Chievo but I severely doubt he is likely to join either Liverpool or Arsenal. I really don’t see either team considering Amauri to be the kind of player who would add anything to their first team – and certainly not for that kind of money. What do Liverpool and Arsenal fans think? Am I being too harsh?
