This source, and more importantly not me, suggests that Arsene Wenger is going to go crazy and bid for this Spanish striker!
Arsenal have been linked with an astounding £50 million move for Spanish star David Villa during the January transfer window.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is said to be having substantial amount of money so that he can buy in the transfer market in the New Year.
The Frenchman had been linked with Villa during the summer too however the move didn’t take place.
The Spanish international forward’s current club Valencia, are currently facing some serious financial crisis and could be looking to offload quite a number of players. Wenger is reportedly looking to take full advantage of the situation and make a swoop for the player.
The 27-year old who is known to be one of the best strikers in the world is also being targeted by mega rich Manchester City however it is believed that the Euro 2008 star would prefer a switch to the Emirates. (tribalfootball.com)
Now we all know that Arsene doesn’t really have a habit of spending the big bucks which is what makes this speculation very hard to swallow. Valencia do need the cash though, so it seems far more likely that Manchester City would make such an offer even though David Villa may of course not be certain that a move to Eastlands would do his long term Champions League ambitions much good. Wenger has a good set of strikers to choose from in his Emirates squad, and that fact is strengthened by the likely return of long term injury bound Eduardo in the next week or two. Do Arsenal fans believe this source may be on to something or is this simply a work of fiction?
