Italian giants considering move for utility player.
Juventus Plan Move For Arsenal’s Emmanuel Eboue
Juventus are looking at Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue as the answer to their right-back questions, according to Tuttosport.
The reports indicates a move is being planned by club directors for the winter transfer market, as Ciro Ferrara has asked for a reliable defender for his right side. Jonathan Zebina has struggled with injury problems, while Zdenek Grygera has found it hard to perform in the coach’s new tactical set up.
Ferrara is keen to challenge for the Champions League and the Scudetto and he wants a powerful, pacy and combative right-back who can cope with the demands of top European action. In addition, Eboue can play as a midfielder, allowing Ferrara freedom to work with his players and tactics. (Goal.com)
I would be the first to admit that I was unsure of the abilities and attitude displayed by Emmanuel Eboue at stages of the last two seasons but he fought hard and worked to get the boo boys off his back and to a large extent he managed to do just that.
Now a player far more likely to sit on the bench and wait for his chances the Ivorian has been the subject of much speculation surrounding a potential move to Italy, and to be honest if Juventus offer a fee in the region of the supposed £8m valuation then Arsene Wenger would probably take it and perhaps the player himself would welcome a new challenge.
There is no doubting he is a handy player to have as he is adaptable but at the same time he is not going to be a regular at the Emirates so I don’t see Arsene standing in his way if he chose to make such a move.
