Arsenal plan £20m double raid, but can anyone tell me why?

This one confused me, two players linked with a move from Newcastle United to Arsenal, but I don’t see what the two players offer in any way to improve what Arsene Wenger already has at the Emirates. Which simply leads me to believe this story has little basis in fact, surprise, surprise!

Arsene Wenger is eyeing unsettled Newcastle pair Obafemi Martins and Charles N’Zogbia. N’Zogbia is keen to move to London and has been linked with the Gunners and north London rivals Tottenham. (Daily Star)

N’Zogbia is by no means a bad player in fact he is pretty good, but Arsenal have many players in the positions he covers who offer more. Martins is in a similar mould, he isn’t a patch on Adebayor, Van Persie or Eduardo and the Nigerian is unlikely to be happy to play second or third fiddle or simply cover for injuries. I think neither of these players is heading to north London – well not the Red part of it at least.
