I was listening to Wenger’s pre-Wigan exclusive for ATVO. He was asked about Rodallega as there have been some rumors in the last couple of days. Here is what he said,
Yes, he’s done well but we’re not interested. That’s clean.
That quashes the £22 Million double deal rumors which never made any sense in the first place. The discussion then moved towards transfer targets for the summer.
We’re not looking for a striker. We’ve already done what we wanted to do and that’s clean.
What do we make of that? I’m pretty convinced those words mean we’ve signed a striker. Arsene is not the kind of person who gives much away but that statement along with certain quotes attributed to Chamakh lead me to believe we’ve our first summer signing. Now you know what to do with any story linking us to a striker.
Let’s hope this is the first of some important acquisitions in the summer.
In a completely unrelated thought, what’s with Arsene and all the cleanliness. Did things get too Messi for his liking! 😛
