Galatasaray eye Rosicky acquisition

Turkish giants Galatasaray are interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky, with Gala officials said to be reportedly meeting Ivan Gazidis for talks later this week.

The 29-year-old, who is yet to win a title since arriving in north London from Borussia Dortmund in 2006, has a known admirer in Galatasaray’s head coach Frank Rijkaard who earlier this week was singing the Czech star’s praises.

“Tomas has great footballing intelligence. This would help our strikeforce. Especially Baros [Rosicky’s Czech team-mate] who would benefit from him,” Rijkaard was quoted as saying.

Arsene Wenger is apparently willing to listen to offers for the midfield maestro, who signed a new long-term deal with the Gunners in January, but it seems unlikely that Rosicky will be sold with the new Premier League season so near.

According to sources in Turkey, negotiations will continue on Thursday.

is this why Wenger has skipped out on of the club’s charity launch in Soho? I have read nebulas rumours that if we moved out some people up front we might bring in another attacking player. Though it seems unlikely given what Wenger has said about his transfer plans. But then we signed Arshavin when we all thought we needed a defensive player.

If Rosicky goes then i think Wenger has lost his mind. Rosicky has been brilliant pre-season and we are losing more experienced players in favour of wilshere, frimpong etc. I think they are great talents but this would be a step too far for me

WTF! This is better not be true! We have lost too many players this window already and have not replaced them.

Eduardo, Sol, Gallas, Silvestre, Senderos all out and we get Kos.
Rosicky now out?

That makes it 6 out and 1 in. Maths wasnt my strongest subject at school, so can somebody explain to me how the figures add up.

@Fabo[4]:

maybe common-sense isn’t yours.. Chamakh was a lock from last season itself. he simply replaced adebayor after one year because the great french man wanted to save money.

@ Fabo. lol, i did warn you it wasnt my strongest subject. So we have let 6 players go and have only brought in 2, that means we are 4 players lighter. Last season i thouught we were at least 2 players light, but here we are now with a thinner squad with the season around the corner. Arsenal have treated us all like idiots. We have not actually spent any money this summer yet. Eduardo went for £6m-£7m, Senderos supposedly went for £2m (compensation). so if we cash up on the two players just mentioned, then Arsenal have balanced… Read more »

At the end of the season there were a few so called experienced players in our squad who weren’t contributing enough. Some dead wood if you like. Rosicky and Eduardo were among those players.

Good riddance.

Just hope we replace him with an established player because this summer is shaping up to be another cost cutting exercise by Arsenal F.C.

we’ll see how this plays out. to be honest, i am not that concerned about rijkaard’s comments – he likes our player (one currently under contract to arsenal i may add) and sees him filling a need in the gala side. so what – that means nothing to arsenal fc – unless we are interested in selling. what i am a little more concerned about – and again, this may not be true – word that rosicky himself is seriously considering gala’s interest. if he asks for a transfer, i can see a situation where the club would be willing… Read more »

Rosicky is 30 in 2 months, why should we be so angry if he does leave!? He’s had terrible injury problems and, like Eduardo and many others, doesn’t look like he will ever recover fully. It’s a real shame, but as long as we can replace Rosicky why is it such a problem? Nasri has been on fire already pre-season. £5million for a player with only 51 league starts in 4 seasons!? The main problems though are to sign: Goalkeeper At least one defender, who can also play holding midfield (in the way that Vincent Kompany does, but for me,… Read more »

he is injury prone. we have enough players comming through to replace him. he is 29 and should be starting more games, he won’t be starting for arsenal so i wish him the best at galatasaray. i have confidence in the squad we have, we are heading in the right direction. if we dont win it this season, we will win in the next few years. some people are super impatient, for a relatively cheap team look what we have achieved, top 4 finishes, great showings in the champions league, some of the best football to watch in the world.… Read more »

I hope we didn’t pay much for an injury prone player. It’s a good deal if transferred for 4 or 5. Let’s see what magic he can do alongside with Milan Baros and Harry Kewell.

am a major fan of little mozart and do not want to see him go. he seems finally injury free, has had a great preseason, and is experienced. if he does go, then we MUST have a replacement for him. squad depth is important, something arsene has never understood.

WTF IS GOING ONN!!! first eduardo and now rosicky? what is he thinking, there must be something going on

@ VanDaManPersie

Eduardo has been replaced by Chamakh
Campbell is yet to be replaced as Wenger actually wanted to keep him
Gallas has been replaced by Koscielny
Silvestre has been replaced by Djourou/Nordtveit
Senderos doesnt count as he wasnt in the squad last year
If Rosicky goes then all it means is that Wilshere and Vela will have more games

So basically even though we have let more players go, the squad wll actually be roughly the same size what with injured players coming back, loaned out players coming back, youth players being promoted etc.

Wenger cannot do it because of fabregas.

Hes already seen his best mates like senderos, flamini, hleb leave if rosicky goes the guy is going to be even more annoyed.

Plus rosicky seems to be a popular guy in the pre season

@JP:
so what he is 30??remember how old campbell was??why should we offload??You guys clearly did not watch anything last season!!!We were always short of players…remember the everton game..2-1..and who steps up??It was rosicky!!!Stupid..players like these, when fit can do anything!!!!!!we should not offload, we should sign!!this is why barca, chelsea win things..because they have a strong backup,..or plan b!!!

@mike:
no…chamakh did not replace..he replaced adebayor..eduardo will be replaced by probably vela..
and djourou..he was already there when sylvestre was signed..wenger is looking for defensive options because thats what cost up everything last season..we were good offensively,,but defensively…no need to say!!!

This is the last best pal Fabregas had in this team. Wenger is making conditions worse for Fabregas to stay. Henry left, Flamini left, then Hleb, then Senderos, now Rocky??? Bad idea from a man trying to convince our captain to stay, or is he really trying to??? By the looks of it, I think Fabragas will be gone by next week.

It seems this news is true. The offer mentioned is 5m euros but Arsenal are holding out for atleast 8m euros.

Unfortunately this comes one day after the man said its time to end Arsenal’s trophy drought.

mike

yash, in terms of this years squad and the previous, Chamakh is replacement for Eduardo as Adebayor left the season before and Vela was already here anyway. Djourou wasnt really counted in the squad last season as we had a 4 man central defence of: Vermaelen, Gallas, Silvestre & Campbell (senderos before him but he might as well have not been there!) … had Djourou been fit I doubt we would have kept Senderos and then later bought Campbell. Hence why we only need 2 defenders to relpace Gallas, Silvestre and Campbell (1 being Koscielny)

I don’t want Rosicky to go. He’s a great player! And even if he can’t get as much games as he used to, he’s still a great player to have in the team. I’ll be sad if he leaves.

Have all the players we sold affect us that much ? Senderos was not playing Campbell was a quick fix only Silvestre was old Eduardo was never the same since Birmingham and Rosicky was injured more then he played Only Gallas will be missed and we now have Koschy…. Lets see what happens Besides defence cover we can lose a player….We have Nasri, Arshavin and Wilshere for Rosicky, we have RVP, Chamakh, Bendtner, Vela and Walcott instead of Eduardo… Only defence we need a player….and if you believe the above story then you must also believe the defenders we have… Read more »

Yellafella, yours would only be a deal for Fabregas+Ramsey exchange.

Aykut + Baris Ozbek (German U-21)+Mustafa Sarp = Rosicky would be fair enough.

The contract is already signed so best wishes for Wenger & Arsenal.

@deeno36: the point is that the defenders we did have did not get the job done and we need better ones. its not just about replacing players but replacing them with players that were better than them and get the job done.

So there I was, after watching the lameness and general rubbishness of TR quite intently last weekend, wondering how we would get shot of that piece of deadwood, when along comes Frankie!!! 🙂 There’s a sucka born every minute. I will drive TR to Istanbul myself to make this happen. Bite the hand Arsene, make it happen!

I don’t think we should move Rosicky unless we have a replacement like Ozil, who is in the last year of his contract and doesn’t want to re-new. But to be honest, I just don’t think Rosicky has the legs play on the wings anymore. He plays as deep as Beckham has in recent years on right, but he doesn’t have his right foot. It could be excused somewhat in a 4-4-2, but not in a 4-3-3. His position now is in the middle, but Fabregas and Nasri are already ahead of him there. He seems like a good guy… Read more »
