Arsene Wenger has come under fire for not signing enough established talent in recent years and personally I find such talk laughable, especially when you consider just what his side achieved last season, finishing just short of the title (when most people began the season thinking the Gunners wouldn’t even challenge for the Premier League). Now the French master is lining up two more youngsters to his fantastic squad.
Meanwhile, Arsenal want to add £6m rated Frenchmen Clement Chantome, from PSG, and Laval’s Francis Coquelin to their ranks. (Various)
A statement from Laval states: “We are hearing here and there different destinations for different transfer fees. The truth of the moment it that Francis Coquelin is free.” (Setanta)
20-year-old Chantome is a midfielder in a Flamini vein, has already become a fixture in Paul Le Guen’s PSG team and is on the verge of a full international call up. 17-year-old Coquelin, another midfielder, looks very near to joining the Emirates ranks. What do Arsenal fans think about this potential pair of new signings?
