Arsenal Could make Controversial move for Spurs Star!

The all new rumour reporting article system is in full effect!

The Rumour

French newspapers have reported that Wenger could bid for Tottenham full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto. With Kieron Gibbs a little rattled in recent weeks as cover for Gael Clichy and Mikael Silvestre proving less than reliable, Wenger may want some experienced defenders in. The Cameroon international has become first choice left-back at Spurs but may be tempted by European football.

The Analysis

Boy oh boy this move could well start a riot in north London! The rumours are that Silvestre is set for a move back to France in the summer but even then would a move for Ekotto materialise?

The young French left back has performed admirably at White Hart Lane this season, especially since Harry Redknapp took over but is Arsenal’s need so great that they would consider a move for the 25 year old, i think not. Gael Clichy is a class act and whilst Kieron Gibbs was a little overwhelmed by the task of covering for the first choice he has managed to ease himself into the role and hasn’t looked out of place in the role and after all we are talking about a teenager here, and one with a great deal of potential.

Above all can you imagine what such a move would do for the youngsters confidence if Arsenal moved for Benoit!
