Emirates Stadium boss prepares for busy summer.
Arsene Wenger is ready to accept Samir Nasri’s departure from the Emirates Stadium and will also consider offers for under performing trio, Denilson, Abou Diaby and Nicklas Bendtner. The Arsenal boss will however fight off bids for Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas and will then use funds accrued from player sales to bring in significant additions this summer.
Having seen Gael Clichy make his move to Man City Wenger will steadfastly refuse to allow his fellow French international team-mate Nasri move to a Premier League rival, and will instead monitor offers from the continent.
The former Marseille man has just one year left on his contract and the Arsenal manager will not want to lose the 24 year old for nothing in 12 months time and will hope that reported interest from the likes of Roma and Inter Milan results in a good enough offer for the attacking midfielder.
Arsenal are suffering the repercussions of a sixth successive season without silverware and are seemingly struggling to complete deals for prospective targets who are wary of making a move to the North London club which appears to be in the middle of something of a stormy summer. Moves have reportedly been made for Lille striker Gervinho and Premier League centre backs Gary Cahill and Christopher Samba, but as yet no deals have been signed off.
Wenger is willing to sell Brazilian midfielder Denilson who has failed to win a regular spot in Arsenal’s starting eleven after initially impressing when he first broke into the first team a few seasons back. Abou Diaby will also be sacrificed after another season where the combative midfielder has consistently flattered to deceive.
Danish international Nicklas Bendtner also looks to have played his last game for the club and interest from Germany appears to appeal to the giant striker who last season upset Arsene Wenger with comments relating to his lack of first team playing time.
Whilst Arsenal have supposedly opened a dialogue with Barcelona over a move to skipper Cesc Fabregas, such a move has been designed to appease the Spanish international but Wenger will not openly consider offers for such a crucial player on top of other player sales.
The Catalan club has made offers for Fabregas but their valuation of their former youth team player is some way off Arsenal’s and as long as this is the case Wenger can happily maintain his relationship with the club captain who appears happy to remain at the club just as long as big name players are brought in to help supplement those who are set to leave.
