Inter Midfielder Dacourt Receives Arsenal Offer?


Written by Chris Wheatley

45 Comments  

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could be considering offering Inter Milan midfielder Olivier Dacourt a 6 month contract at the club.

Dacourt, 33 – formerly with Leeds and Everton – may be allowed to leave Inter at a cut price £400,000, and French tactician Wenger has reportedly instructed his scouts to check on the player’s fitness.

A move for Dacourt would help to add some much needed experience in the Gunners squad, who lost influential midfielder Cesc Fabregas to a serious knee injury a fortnight ago.

Speaking to RMC, the combative Dacourt (pictured, right) revealed:

“I’ve received offers from England and Italy, but nothing from France. I have a contract with Inter at the moment, but I want to play, especially as I’m getting towards the end of my career.”

Dacourt has only played 12 minutes of league football this season after falling out with boss Jose Mourinho.

Having not played with the Nerazzurri in Europe this season, the Frenchman has the advantage of being involved in the ultimate competition.

Ironically, if he does sign in January, he will be pitting his wits against his old club AS Roma in the last 16 of the Champions League.

has any 1 actually seen anything of Inler to say that he has the attributies and quality that we need, if football manager is anything to go by and they are never far wrong, he is average. Just go and spend wenger for god sake.

Yep, I’ve seen Inler plenty of times.

Is he Arsenal class?

No. But in a few seasons, he could turn into the ‘new Flamini’ – at least that’s what most fans are hoping. 🙂

the last thing we need is for our new players in january to develop for ‘a few seasons’ before turning into big stars…we have more than enough players who are in that category in our team already

We need players with instant impact. Enough of the patience game.

Noo, Inler is not Arsenal-class player, I agree with Gunner Chris.
Afellay, Veloso, Yaya, Xabi would be perfect.

Gooner Chris

He didn’t say he wasn’t going to buy, he said ‘no, not at the moment’.

The boss is very clever with his answers, I’m sure we’ll see a couple of additions in January.

I think there a enough players already playing in the premier league for Wenger to go for.

Sod signing some untried or over the hill player from abroad.

Wenger will focus to the Sunday’s game. After that we will have two weeks until the first PL match in the new year. (I hope we will beat the Plymouth with the current squad…)
On 1st January, Gazidis will work officially, I think, Wenger will buy some players, but we don’t need 5 or 6 players, just 2, maximum 3.

Here are some suggestions for who we might buy; 1.Gokhan inler looks a premiership plyer but still needs a little polishing. 2.Hangeland been a rock for fulham and is a vidic type defender. 3.Hernanes sao paulo- one of the best central midfielders who is a DM brilliant skills and passing nd a good tackler. 4. Toulalan experienced DM midfielder very good gritty combtive midfielder. 5.Vincent Kompany- Looks ideal for arsenl maybe arsene could put a cheeky bid. Been plying well 6.Neven Subotic- An up and coming world class CB hes 6ft4 and a hard deterined CB. 7.Cristian Zapata-Basically bigger version… Read more »

I think it`s better for Wenger to buy J.Bullard who can score some goals from free-kicks.

wenger better sign for star such ass yaya ,arshavin, federico fazio,or david villa,or someone who not play for champion league for help them in champion league ,i think player from velencia or sevilla we should persuade.

Mathieu Bodmer would be perfect but hes injured until February.

Second John:Hernanes as a replacement temp for Fab though he is not the best defensively and may cost a lot.

Would also like to see Banega, Srna (cup tied), David Suazo.

But a lot of players will cost a lot and we don’t have that money. I won’t go into all the details but Man City are the only team with money to burn. Spurs may be restricted like us in a couple of years.

if this is true..WHY SELL GILBERTO!!??!!?? 3 years younger and a long serving player. yaya toure would be good, not so sure about inler because we need players who already have the experience of playing at a top top club.

If AW was serious about winning he would go out and buy Jeremy Toulalan and Yaya Toure for the midfield and then find a great goalkeeper and a world class centreback

AW is not serious about winning!

Arsenal will sign Shay Given, Steven Taylor and Charles N’Zogbia in the jan transfer window.

I agree with Ray. AW doesn’t seem to be interested in winning. His passion is enterteaining/pretty/bewitching soccer.Even when the team is leading and under pressure at the goal mouth the intruction is”Play yourself out of trouble”. Point is the defender under pressure is liable to mistakes especially if there is no back up and you have excellent players like Gerard,Keane,etc hovering around.Clichy has caused a few goals this season and in previous seasons. I think Arsenal will be scrapping for fourth spot for I believe AW has forgotten why the ES was built. Furthermore if he were to buy some… Read more »

after watching the Villa match, it only confirmed my belief´s, that we need some who can attack the ball, the way we are playing at the moment is a disaster, you have to wonder if Arsene is trying to get sacked, with all the stupid remarks lately, i am sick to my stomick, by remarks that we have a team who can compete against the best, when it so clear we dont. it seems to me that we are now a develop team, who delivers great players to the rest of the world, i mean, when you by players at… Read more »

Arshavin, or some creative player as withot Rosicky and Fabregas we are lacking that. Centre mid?? Do we go for a loan deal as we await the blossoming of one of our many centre mids. A centre half priority but who??? I have no idea who we can go for but it has to be someone who will fit in straight away, so a prem player

If the Dacourt romours are true I’ll welcome him , B’cus Im sure he wont be coming alone in that case I figure we’ll be getting two defensive midfielders in and a winger. AW may be arrogant but his not stupid. Without Fab and a defense in shambles we should resort to the oldways with two defensively strong players in the center and penetrative wingers. Everyone has been screaming for expeience .. well Dacourt has plenty of it and also hes not a nice guy in fact hes not even likable .. but hey that may be just what we… Read more »

the 70m u all were talking about is an overdraft available to Wenger so yes there is money he can spend but not money Arsenal own it would be borrowed money hence it is there and it isn,t so as much as he wants to spend he can,t bring himself to spend borrowed cash

He’s been seen at Colney.People,this is our guy.It’s vintage Wenger 2008.The bright side?Wikipedia says some Inter fans nicknamed him The Rock during his time filling in for Viera,and he probably already knows English,so he can start telling off Eboue,Denilson,Song,Diaby and Nasri ASAP!
