Mathieu Valbuena Gets the “Go Ahead” For Arsenal Transfer
Jose Anigo said on the air that Marseille would not object to selling Mathieu Valbuena to Arsenal which makes many wonder how much contact have Arsenal had in regards to the winger? Here’s what Anigo had to say:
“It’s been six years since the club is Mathieu Valbuena. If Arsenal wants to buy it eventually, the discussion can be opened even if it is not sure it goes after. When a player has spent five or six years in a club, out of respect for him, nothing is closed. Even if it is not the seller. We are very pleased with him but if a big club is interested in Mathieu, people listen. ”
Arsenal have been linked with his teammate Andre Ayew but Anigo maintains that they won’t be selling as he’s ruled out the departure of his winger. Anigo said:
“André Ayew is not for sale,continued Anigo. There is certainly a clause but the clause has a time limit is exceeded today. If you want to buy, you pay a different price than that set at the start. Andre Ayew has a long way to us. “
Valbuena would bring some confidence to the Emirates and is a full international for France. A winger with quick feet no doubt and a good cross and would be a replacement if Nasri were to leave! Not totally convinced he’s a player we need but brings with him experience, and would put some creativity and confidence into this thin squad! Have a look at the French winger.
