Wenger Exclusive : Gervinho Has Signed, Nasri & Fabregas To Stay, Gibbs,Traore or Vermaelen For LB Role

Fresh from the 13hour flight to Malaysia, Arsene Wenger alongside Van Persie and Bacary Sagna addressed the media in a press conference and as expected, the topics were Gervinho, Nasri & Fabregas, and the Left back position.

Thanks to @1nil2thearsenal & @aeroblog we were able to gather news on what he said.

On Gervinho, he had this to say

    Gervinho has signed for Arsenal and will start training today at Colney, he hasn’t had any preseason training at all so he won’t be joining us for the Asia Tour


On Nasri & Fabregas, he said

    As for Nasri, he’s not going anywhere this year and we don’t know if he will sign an extension. He went further by saying Fabregas isn’t going anywhere and wants him to remain with the team.

@1nil2thearsenal thinks what Wenger plans to do is try and convince Nasri a few months into the season, and if that doesn’t work, will look to sell in January. That might be risky as the ball will be solely in Nasri’s court.

And finally, on the left back position, Wenger mentioned Gibbs, Traore and Vermaelen, I.e any one of those 3 players will be assessed in that position and whoever excels would make the position his.

Well there you have it. Do have a swell day. See you in the comments.

  1. pls arsenal board buy a big big players if not arsenal most go religate.

  2. Wit Vermaleen on our left back,den we need d services of Cahill n Samba as well as a good finisher(Striker).dats all.den i know Arsenal r out for trophies.

  3. Gerv looks(facial) like a pipe..hope he plays well dou. Really dnt know if this is a needed addition.. Shld be focusing on trying to bring in Cahill n samba IMO. Not a fan of wenger wen it comes to transfers. Just want d season starting already.

  4. hi my fellow fans, dat signing is gud but we need buy two defenders like samba n calhil n keep nasri

  5. Gervinho IN is great,but d signing of great centre back(Cahill or Samba),standing 4 dat can brilliantly stand-in for Song plus winger dat could help Theo,would make it fantastic! To keep Nasri,at least,will be a great boost! Gunners for life!

  6. AbhiTheGooner

    this is the best that a gooner wanted to hear from Arsne this transfer season!! All the rumors can STFU !

  7. It is not enough, we need defenders like Samba & Cahil to strengthen our defence.

  8. Gervinho’s done deal is a nice one,still expecting wenger to bring in 2 nw defenders. i.e cahill&samba and make sure fabregas,nasri stays. Gunners 4life

  9. gud signing now we are feeling better.

  10. AW thanks for buyig GERV. but what about marcelo? He’s got power,pace, skills and above all, FOCUSS besides being only 23. these are the kind of players nasri want to see before he can commit his future at Arsenal. bring the cheaper german deffender to play wth VERM in the CB and marcello to replace clichy on left. for sure Gibs and Traore are still raw for that task . good luck

  11. I doubt wenger would move for marcelo same way I doubt madrid would let him go seeing as he’s one of the club captains. I hope Gibbs seizes this opportunity if not isee Vermaelen playing LB and two of Cahill, Samba, Metersacker coming in.

  12. We better sign players o!. Arsene is taking us for a ride again. Just 1 signing. He better signs two defenders very soon. Bendtner too should leave quickly so that we’ll replace him. I also hope Kieran Gibbs and Carlos Vela get a chance. Hope we sign a world class or a well known striker that delivers

  13. if we do not buy a sweeper like samba,arsenal should forget winning even the Carling cup this season , it annoying this man [ wenger ] is very very stubborn
