If the rumours are true and Xabi Alonso is indeed coming to the Emirates then I would be a very happy Gooner.
I've always rated Alonso and I believe that he and Fabregas could form a devastating partnership in the centre of midfield.
Alonso is exactly what Arsenal need right now. He will fit into Arsenal's pattern of play, is an international and most important of all he has that important ingredient Arsenal lack.......experience.
He has all the requires that Le Boss has stated he wants,
A) Alonso has Premiership experience
B) Is a "special player"
C) Is very clever and tactical
Being Spanish would help his partnership with Fabregas. They have played together for Spain on occasions and linked up well together.
People will say that if Liverpool don't want him why should we? Well I say more fool Liverpool, he'd be ideal for us.
I'd be more than happy for this to materialise. It wont happen yet. It will happen on August 31st. Trust me, that will be the day that we sign Alonso and Liverpool sign Barry.
What do you think? Would Alonso be a good signing?.........
Keep it Goonerish............
