As Arsene Wenger continues to be linked with all and sundry, another name has been added to the growing list of players who may well smash the Gunners’ transfer record. Here is the latest…
£15m rated Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz has emerged as a potential target for Arsene Wenger should Arsenal lose Emmanuel Adebayor to Barcelona during the summer transfer window. (Telegraph)
I think it would be fair to say that the Paraguayan could lay claim to being the bargain buy of last season and, whilst Mark Hughes will be desperate to hold on to his man, will he be able to convince the former Bayern Munich forward that Blackburn Rovers are the best bet? Santa Cruz has appeared to try and distance himself from these rumours, which runs contrary to the behaviour of some of his Ewood Park colleagues (naming no names….David Bentley).
Do Rovers fans think they will be able to keep Roque? Do Arsenal fans rate him highly?
