The price may be high, but recent performances could see this valuation rise and rise, but one Arsenal magician thinks it’s a deal worth making!
Cesc Fabregas admits he would love to see his Spain team-mate David Villa playing at Arsenal.
Villa lit up Euro 2008 on Tuesday as he grabbed a sensational hat-trick in Spain’s 4-1 demolition of Russia in Innsbruck.
Cesc, who came off the bench to grab the fourth, says Villa would make a huge impact in the Premier League and he would love to see Arsenal sign him ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool – who have been linked.
“He would be amazing for the English league,” Fabregas said of Villa.
“I would like to have him in my team because as you can see he can make the difference.
“He’s an amazing player. He has mobility, he scores goals. He plays well at the back of defenders, in front of them, he’s a tremendous player.” (sportinglife.com)
Villa has indicated a wish to leave the Mestalla this summer and earlier this year revealed which English club he would favour joining.
“I watch the Premier League a lot and the team I’m most attracted to is definitely Arsenal.
“Their brilliant one and two-touch football and the whole style of rapid counter-attack which dominates the top level of the Premier League now is.
“I think I’m made to succeed in England, but of course it is one thing saying it and quite another getting there and then doing it.”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger usually bids for players that are yet to hit their potential which makes such a bid for the former Real Zaragoza striker unlikely. Even if Wenger was interested in signing the £20 million rated striker, they would have to move quickly. (Telegraph)
Valencia have slapped a 30m price tag on the Spanish striker, but after his hat-trick last night it’s a valuation that doesn’t seem so over the top now. Do Arsenal fans think that Wenger should pay heed to Cesc’s pleas? Do Gunners supporters want to see their French boss splash the cash this summer?
