Arsenal to break transfer record for £16m Flamini replacement: Well worth the money if it’s true!

Arsene wenger is having a busy time of it lately, if you believe the tabloids that is, trying to figure out the best way to spend spend spend. However do the north London club have a lot of money to spend? Popular opinion seems to think not, but the likes of director Danny Fiszman suggest that money is available. Anyway here is the latest story linking the Frenchman with a transfer to break the long overdue record transfer of Mr Wiltord.

Portuguese international Miguel Veloso is according to reports the defensive midfielder Gunners boss Arsene Wenger seeks to replace the departed Mathieu Flamini with this summer.

“I do not know if this was my last game for Sporting,” £16m rated Veloso told reporters after Sporting beat Porto 2-0 in Sunday’s final. “Let’s see what the future holds for Miguel.

“England may be a good destination but I do not know anything about the offers.” (East London and West Essex Guardian)

22 year old Veloso would be a good replacement for Flamini and the major stumbling blocks for such a move would be a) the price and b) the fact that Manchester United are also said to be very interested in adding yet another Portuguese man to their playing squad. What do Arsenal fans think of this potential signing? Would it help banish the ghost of the Flamster? Or are there better players to smash the Gunners transfer record on?
