Two years ago I would have said it would be unreal to even suggest signing any of Manchester City's cast offs.
Now I'd probably welcome one or two!
City are signing anything that moves and with this new 25-man squad rule coming in force, and baring in mind they have about 326 players in their camp, they are gonna need to offload a few.
I know Arsene Wenger isn't going to scroll through Arsenal News Now, see the title of this blog and think to himself, hmm that Wrighty7 fella has given me an idea now, but the thought may have crossed his mind to raid the blue half of Manchester.
Of course Manchester City might not want to help a rival by selling us any players but they have to sell and Arsenal need to buy.
It could be the perfect solution!
I can think of one or two I'd gladly take off their hands.
People say Micah Richards has gone backwards but I'd snap him up in a flash. Form is temporary, class is permanent. I honestly think he could be a very good partner to Thomas Vermaelen.
And he is a Gooner too.
We need a keeper. Neither Joe Hart or Shat Given will settle for a place on the bench. Maybe either of those two could be an option. I'd prefer Hart but I'd still be happy with Given.
Do we need to strengthen in defensive midfield? Alex Song has come on leaps and bounds and Emmanuel Frimpong looks to have a bright future. Are they enough?
Manchester City have about a million of this type of player, especially now Yaya Toure has joined. Could Nigel De Jong be an option? Stephen Ireland perhaps? Both could be surplus to requirements at City now.
Obviously this is a fantasy post. But would you take any of their 'unwanted' players?
Keep it Goonerish..........
