Arsenal legend urges Wenger not to sign £45m Manchester United target


cesc-fabregas-barcelona-croppedArsenal legend Ray Parlour has urged Arsene Wenger not to sign Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas in the summer transfer window.

The Spain international left the Emirates in the summer of 2011 after spending eight years with the North London club. However, it is believed that Catalan club are set to offload the 27-year-old to raise funds to bring in reinforcements this summer.

The Independent reports Fabregas has been linked with a move to the Emirates, while the Gunners’ league rivals Manchester United are also monitoring the midfielder’s situation at Camp Nou.

However, Parlour, the former Arsenal man believes the addition of Fabregas will see Wenger struggle in accommodating the Spaniard in the North London side’s midfield.

“The problem with Fabregas is where do you put him in the team? They have got very similar players to Fabregas – they have Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere – if you bring Fabregas back where do you fit him in?” Parlour said.

“He was great for the club but forwards should be much more of a priority. You look at Manchester City and Liverpool and they have much better forwards.”

According to the reports, the club will hand Wenger with  £100m transfer kitty to bring in players to the Emirates in the upcoming transfer window. The Independent report claims Barcelona are willing to part ways with Fabregas for a transfer fee of £45m.

Should Wenger manage to re-sign the Spain midfielder, he will be spend close to half his summer transfer budget on Fabregas. This would leave Arsenal and the Frenchman is tough situation, especially when the Gunners’ priority is to sign a world class striker.

In addition to this, Bacary Sagna is a free agent and the departure of the France international will see the Gunners find a replacement for the right-back.

  1. I think Wenger should buy Fabregas. We need him at the club. We know what he can do and letting him go to opponents is just disaster to us. Wenger should never give an opportunity of Fabregas playing alongside RVP. WHERE TO PLAY HIM AT ARSENAL? He replaces Kallstrom. Remember that we struggled for midfielders when Ramsey, Jack and Ozil were injured.

  2. Arsenal will regrect for not signing fabergas back. It will be the worst mistakes in the club history. Arsenal signed their formal past players and all most all of them come back good. Please give fabergas another chance. Sagna will regrect leaving arsenal. One day he must speak about it.

  3. We don’t need him. All we need now is a holding midfielder, a replacement for Sagna, and a topclass striker. We have many playmakers in the team so, buying him will be surplus to requirement, most of all, waste of money.

  4. There is no need to resign fabregas. Striker and right back should be the main target. Up gunners

  5. Ray’s comment okay, but Fab will not cost 45m. We need him, a top striker and a defender. Allowing him to man u will be a disaster

  6. Arsenal should resign fabregas, wenger know how to use him, we throw out premiership league when Rambo and jack get injure.

  7. I agree with parlour hundred percent.with likes of wilshere,cazorla,ozil & diaby ln central midfild fab has no place. if you watch him in barcelona he is more of attack similar to what ramsy is doing. what is arsenal gain? if resing fab at £45m when losing him at £35m, more ever he left when he is most needed. i know fab have many arsenal fans love but to me resigning him is like a 2-0

  8. my dear fans let encourage wenger to re-sign fabregas he’s typ of player we need to boost our mid field.wishere,Aaron,ozil,if any one of dem is injured d spain man wil fit in rather than sell to is dangerous to allow fabregas to join rival team in England

  9. Ray’s analysis really make sense. For sure Fabregas is a very good player, but in my own candid opinion, re-signing him might bring some selection problem thus making it a distraction and a mismanagement of fund to the club. Let him go to Man U or where ever he wants to go. Besides, this is not the first time Arsenal has been in such situation!

  10. we need and we need fabrecas hundred percent he is a talented player and as we are arsenal fans we need himto re-sign.

  11. I also believe that at this point Arsenal doesn’t need Cesc Fabergas.We have enough world class talents in midfield who would start in any team anywhere.What we need is another world class striker who can score goals and replace Sagna.Try to stay healthy as much as possible and we can win the premiere league and challenge in the championship league.

  12. We should definately buy cesc.Cesc cazorla ozil ramsey in midfield outstanding
