On a serious level can you really see Arsene Wenger bidding £18 million for Everton's Phil Jagielka?
I don't mean to sound disrepectful but in my opinion Jagielka is not even worth £10 million let alone £18 million.
The money that clubs expect for English players these days is out of control. It's little wonder most shop abroad.
I don't doubt that Phil Jagielka is a good player (not great) but he has just spent the best part of a year injured and not only that, hasn't ever played at the highest level.
Yes, I know he has played for England but the Champions League is the top level in football, not international football.
For around £8-9 million I'd say he might be worth a punt. Not for anymore than that though.
I don't want to offend but I think that some Gooners in recent seasons have been getting a little desperate for signings.
I suppose who can blame us really? Wenger rarely makes 'exciting' signings so we seem to get a little flustered when linked with players.
I do too.
Of course it's nice to be linked with big signings but for me Phil Jagielka, at £18 million, is crazy.
Just because we are in the market for a centre-back it doesn't mean that we will bid silly money like the amount I'm seeing.
I don't believe that Wenger will bid £18 million for the Everton defender. No way.
In fact, I don't see Arsene Wenger bidding £18 million for any defender. Ever.
Keep it Goonerish..........
