Wenger considering veteran signing.
Arsène Wenger is almost certainly not drunk or cold, but may have his sanity questioned anyway if rumours linking centre-half-without-portfolio Sol Campbell with a move back to Arsenal turn out to be true. According to the Mirror, Wenger will offer Campbell a contract if he can get rid of Philippe Senderos during the January transfer window, in a bizarre transaction that would involve him swapping a famously well read man who speaks five different languages for one who likes to convey the impression that he’s a well read man who speaks five different languages.

This rumour first surfaced shortly after the former Arsenal man left Notts County five days into a five year deal but it was speculation that was given short shrift by most Gunners fans and its hard to believe that this story could really come to fruition… or could it?
Arsene Wenger has in recent interviews refused to be drawn on the possibility of re-signing Sol Campbell and hasn’t ruled out such a move and as such many have rather dubiously claimed that a move could actually happen but many factors appear to suggest a move unlikely.
The Gunners boss doesn’t tend to sign players over 30 years of age and has a policy of only offering year long contracts to players the wrong side of 30 and given that Wenger even ruled out bringing back former skipper Patrick Vieira I don’t see it likely the former Tottenham, Portsmouth and England man making a shock move to the north London side.
