So here we are once again. Transfer deadline day. One of the most exciting days of the year or one of the most unnecessary? Maybe that is a debate for another time.
All the focus is on the Dimitar Berbatov saga, but here at Gooner Talk, we aim to bring you the latest Arsenal transfer news with midnight approaching as faster than ever.
Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is unlikely to join, mainly because of Gareth Barry’s commitment to Aston Villa. Saint Etienne playmaker Blaise Matuidi has been watched by Gilles Grimandi and a possible move could be on the cards if Arsenal enter late negotiations.
Some surprising names have been linked with the likes of Patrick Vieira and Klaas Jan Huntelaar two of the stars mentioned – the latter committing to Ajax earlier this afternoon.
One player who could certainly sign tonight is Real Madrid defender Christoph Metzelder. The experienced German international is out of favour at the Bernabeu and with Johan Djourou rumoured to be on his way to West Ham, Metzelder may prove to be a firm Gunners target.
What do you think? Will Arsene Wenger go against his words and not get anyone? Or will Arsenal recruit an experience player to boost the squad?
