Not content with year upon year of profit at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger is set to make another £26 million. But this time he will sell four of his first team squad to do it.
Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela, Manuel Almunia and Denilson are those in the firing line, with a lack of first team opportunities being cited as the main reasons for the imminent departures.
Bendtner, who has been suffering from a badly bruised ego ever since he wasn’t nominated for the World Player of the Year Award, may be on his way to Aston Villa in a £10 million January transfer swoop. Will Bendtner be happy swapping the bench at Arsenal for the bench at Villa?
After attracting the attention of AC Milan and Bayern Munich of late, could Bendtner force his way past Carew, Heskey, Agbonlahor and Delfouneso at Villa Park?
Is Bendtner the answer to Villa’s problems in front of goal? Is he a bargain at £10 million? Will Houllier be around long enough to sign him? And why does Wenger spend years unearthing young talent just to sell to other clubs?
The victory over Chelsea was good, but not magnificent. Chelsea clearly have problems and that was not to be mistaken with a memorable performance by the Blues.
Barcelona loom and that will be among the games that more accurately define their season. No?
