Whilst it is very important never to believe everything you read this story found on the web must have Gunners fans praying for the miracle to occur!
Sport.es suggests that Barcelona are set to offer us Eto’o + €10m. No doubt Eto’o was a quality player but there are serious doubts over the state of his knees and he’s as mad as rabid badger after fill of magic mushrooms. On the other hand it wouldn’t be unlike Arsene Wenger to take on a player others have written off. Witness Overmars and Kanu. I get the feeling this is just Sunday newspaper fiction from Sport though. They’re saying how Adebayor’s goals last season have gotten Europe’s biggest clubs interested in the player, including AC Milan. No, not including. Limited to, I think is the right expression.

We here at COS are big fans of Arseblog and agree wholeheartedly with their assessment of this story. Yes stranger things have happened, but not very often! It does seem that the valuation placed on Adebayor may have scared of a few potential suitors and now Arsene has been reported as set slash what they want for their want-away Togolese international. However if they can offload Emmanuel and get world class goal scorer supreme Samuel Eto’o AND a wad of cash as well then the transfer market has surely gone banana’s! What do Arsenal fans think last season’s top scorer is worth and would it be worth Wenger inquiring about seemingly unwanted Barca striker Eto’o?
