Arsenal fans react to Samuel Eto’o rumour – ‘I would take him in a heartbeat’


According to the Daily Mirror, Samuel Eto’o wants a move to Arsenal this summer, with the Cameroonian instructing his representatives to make the Gunners aware of his availability as a free agent.


The 33-year-old had to win over the vast majority of Chelsea fans when he arrived at Stamford Bridge last season due to his many unsavoury comments about the club when he was playing for European rivals Barcelona; and it looks like Eto’o may have to do it all over again if he moves across London to Arsenal, but for different reasons.

Some Arsenal fans are not convinced that he would bring much to Arsene Wenger’s squad, and are less impressed with his wage demands.

But there are some that see the merit in signing an experienced hitman such as Eto’o, with the Gunners certainly in need of serious attacking reinforcement this summer.

Check out what some of the Arsenal fans had to say on Twitter about the potential Eto’o transfer:

  1. Hopefully Eto’o is a better option in our fight to get some one better than Giroud, Morata and Sanogo, though, Tores is the better option

  2. Samuel Eto’o is a good player But he should b a backup for d main striker,up gunners.

  3. Not too bad as a back up for other two sharp strikers if the wage will not demolish emirate.

  4. We need eto especially in big matches against big top clubs in epl where the sluggish giroud never scored a single goal

  5. I belief Eto’o stillt has alot to offer. Pleasd get him wenger if his wages demand is not high.

  6. am not sure hw potent he still is, but I kno his style suits arsenal, his game is abt movement and space, he is a very good player off the ball with his movement and space creation

  7. Eto’o is good,but considering his age,I think he should be a backup for someone like morata who is young and explosive, just that he doesn’t have space in Madrid.
