No new rumours today, slow day. Today’s hottest topics? Suárez, Bernard, Bendtner, Chamakh and Gervinho.
Suárez to Arsenal rumours are heating up (again), apparently we’ve added £2,499,999, making it a £42,5m bid. Although some ITKs are claiming it will be a £51m deal. Gooners are trying to cope with this, one way or another. Some started annoying Liverpool fans, some started fights with the media who claim Arsenal would not be a step forward for Suárez, some didn’t believe a word of it, some were still outraged about the amount of money, some turned against each other and others started dreaming about Suárez scoring goal after goal for Arsenal. One can always dream!
Apparently no official bid has been made for Bernard and his agent has said that Porto and Shaktar are options for Bernard. Gooners were all over the place. Some continued their Wenger Out campaign, some started crying, some complained that none of us were even sure if we were indeed interested and others simply didn’t care.
Bendtner, oh yes he’s back! No, not in an Arsenal shirt, in the papers. At first it was reported that Malaga were interested (please take him, please), later Malaga stated that Bendtner only cared about money (no sh*t Sherlock). Are we ever getting rid of him?
Reports also said that Palace were interested in Chamakh (you can have him after we signed a new striker. Okay? Okay.), getting rid of ALL the deadwood. Fingers crossed!
Gervinho is most likely off to Roma, for either a 3 year or a 4 year deal. Though most Gooners don’t really care about him leaving, the majority of them did say that Gervinho gave 100% every single time he played.
