Obafemi Martins £13m option 29 June, 2007Posted by lasagnechef in Transfers.
Sam Allardyce has revealed that Martins has a £13m buy-out-clause in his contract and Michael Owen’s is only £9m. It’s really quite crazy for a quality player like Martins and I think he’s a player that would fit in at Arsenal perfectly. He’s strong and technically good but he’s also fucking quick and I can just see him now at Arsenal banging in the goals. I have always liked Martins, I remember saying when he signed for Newcastle he was a good signing and I wish Wenger had looked into him.
Wenger comes back from his holiday soon and I hope he has a think about Martins too. He’s got a nice little list of options now so I’m hoping we sign someone in the next week or two.
Wenger himself could be signing a new deal. Something about the BBC saying le boss and Grimandi holding an emergency meeting to have talks about a new deal. Grimandi being Dein’s replacement. I don’t really know what this is all about but I thought I’d let you know.
That Auxerre bloke, Sagna is looking more of a possibility too. Whether or not we need another right back I don’t know but it’s looking quite possible he will sign. Also there’s the option of converting him to a right-winger so maybe if Arsene is actually looking at him he could be thinking about moving him to the wing.
If we sign someone next week, I think that is a positive start. I’ve got to go, sorry about the short/shit post. Laters.
