Wenger: Gallas & Silvestre to leave & Joe Cole – "maybe", Schwarzer – "no"

Arsene Wenger has revealed that defenders William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre are expected to find new clubs shortly, while ‘keeper Mark Schwarzer won’t be joining the club anytime soon.

The Arsenal boss spoke on several issues after the 4-0 pre-season triumph over Barnet.

On defensive departures:

“Gallas and Silvestre will sign somewhere else. Campbell is still in no man’s land at the moment.”

On Fabregas:

“We’ve shown our love for Cesc and I’m happy the story has ended. Cesc loves club and has shown attachment many times. I believe the story ends there”

On the Transfer Market and potential new signings:

“We’re still active in the transfer market.” When asked about Mark Schwarzer he said that he’s “not interested”. Signed autographs for fans and told them that Joe Cole is a “maybe”.

So it’s a no to Schwazer. Go for Sebastian Frey then Arsene! We are dying to see new classy keeper for the mighty Arsenal. Spend some 15mil on a keeper. It won’t be too much to asked from you

I would rather play with the keepers we already have than spend £4 million on Schwarzer. The guy is too old for that sort of money.

Unless we can sign one of best keepers in the world, and it seems none of them are for sale, then why spend good money just for sake of it, Almunia is a good keeper,he does make errors……..does anyone know one that doesn’t, As for Schwarzer, didn’t you see our last game against Fulham?

If we don’t sign a keeper which seems likely we might aswel just give up any hope of d title – you cannot win a league with two clowns in nets and if wenger starts the season with these two again he doesn’t deserve to manage arsenal football club

Gooner Chris, you heard things re Handanovic? Strong rumours he’s v.close to signing. His agent denied it but Arsenal always insist on secrecy from agents or they will pull the plug on the deal.

@Joel: No fun in that now is there!

There is no way given/harte will play 2nd fiddle, one will leave 100%.

What did he mean by saying Joe Cole ”maybe”? Anyway let us wait maybe he will sign later.Meantime,no one is happy the way Cesc behaved recently toward arsenal. Let him finish this c’son then sell him to the highest bidder.

Shay Given… he’ll be in a fight for the #1 spot @ Man City with Joe Hart and neither will settle for 2nd spot and with Stuart Taylor signed up as well…
Shay would provide 3-4 years as #1 at Arsenal. He has bags of experience, knows the premiership and could teach the rated Szczeny & Mannone the ropes.

Eduardo set to join Shakhtar Donetsk According to Crotian and Ukrainen sources, Eduardo is close to complete his transfer to the Ukrainen Premier League champion side Shakhtar Donetsk. The Brazilan-born striker has recovered from his injury recently, but after that he was not a regular starter of Arsenal when Robin van Persie was injured. Despite this, the news about his departure still ‘shocking’ as Wenger claimed last week that Eduardo was in his plans for the forthcoming season. However, surprisingly Eduardo was missed out from the squad faced against Barnet on Saturday even though he was included in it on… Read more »

Neuer please! He was outstanding in the WC and add to that the Jens Lehman aspect and we’d be set with a quality keeper who can dominate his area and scare the panties of every attacker in the EPL.
I can’t believe that we are not linked with him!!!

On Fabregas: “We’ve shown our love for Cesc and I’m happy the story has ended. Cesc loves club and has shown attachment many times. I believe the story ends there” We’ll he’s shown no love or loalty so sell him & watch another former arsenal players career go down-hill.. He may not be talking to the press but he’s spanish buddys are & if he really wanted to put a stop to it hes pick the phone & say “oi puyol or whoever it is, stop banging off to the press! im staying at arsenal & thats final! But instead… Read more »

Wenger never said “maybe” for cole.He already said we will not be buying any creative midfielders because we were adequate in that department. So cole is always a “NO” for Wenger. He’was just coy about naming names when the GK position came up. We dont need joe cole, not this year at least

No Chris, I did not read it here. And I listened to the interview after the barnet game, and when he was asked to confirm the rumors about mark schwarzer, he said “not really”. He also talked at lenght about fabregas, saying it was not a question of money, but rather of desire to keep him which was why he refused to negotiate with barca. The video was posted on skysports after the game.

I think i read that news on either thesun, or mirrorfootball.
No way arsene was going to buy joe cole even if he didnt sign for pool. His wages would pose a problem, and whose place would he take between arshavin,nasri,wilshere,walcott,diaby, and fab?
