Arsenal very near to capturing the new ‘Kaka’, but why!

The last time I checked Arsenal weren’t doing THAT badly, yes they had a frustrating time of it last night, but they are seemingly better off than they have been since that ‘invincible season’. They have a squad blessed with talent (with perhaps one or two exceptions), that squad is pretty much all the right side of 24 and therefore has a long life span, so is there any need to add more

Olympique Lyon star Clement Grenier is a big target for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and he is apparently desperate to sign the midfielder – dubbed the ‘new Kaka’. (various)

There will be those who say player’s like Grenier are for the future, well given the likes of Carlos Vela, Nacer Barazite, Denilson and many others, it seems the future is pretty much covered also. Maybe all Arsenal need is a couple more experienced heads around, not 30+, but those with a decent grounding at the top level.

P.S – always be wary of anyone titled the next ‘Kaka’ or “Zidane’. It’s usually a very lazy way of agents beefing up their player’s reputation.
