Emirates Stadium side linked with shockingly stupid move.
Arsenal are interested in Blackburn Rovers defender Scott Dann according to the Metro.
Whilst it’s true that the 26 year old is a decent centre-back it is equally accurate to state that the former Birmingham City man is not a player who would sit in the top six of the Premier League and are Champions League regulars.
The 26 year old may well have played a blinder when his Ewood Park side triumphed at the Emirates Stadium but the idea that a good 90 minute run out would qualify him as able to ‘cut it’ at the highest level is fairly absurd.
Remember was at the centre of a defence that was relegated from the Premier League last term and did so by conceding 78 goals, a fairly hefty total to say the least.
There are many who will tell you that Dann is a top notch performer but then would have to wonder why he has been at the heart of two sides who got relegated and perhaps more importantly it’s worth noting that no side managed to lure the Liverpudlian from the Championship side.
Whilst Thomas Vermaelen, Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker haven’t covered themselves in glory this term Dann isn’t in any sense even close to an improvement on this international trio.
