Arsenal seems to be feeling a sense of urgency

31 Aug

If Arsenal’s loss to Manchester United wasn’t a wake up call, it sure is now as the club has been all over the headlines today and have been rumored to also be in the running to acquire Inter Milan‘s midfielder, Wesley Sneijder. They also have been after Fulham’s midfielder Clint Dempsey as the club is searching for valuable players to help them contend in the Barclays Premier League this season. Dempsey has been Fulham’s most valuable player since he made the transition from the MLS to the English side in 2007 and some sources say the deal is close to being done within the next two days. The price for the American goal scorer is not too high for Arsenal, but if it does rise any higher then they may not make the deal for Dempsey. Dempsey has also stated that he is looking forward to playing the Champions League one day and has a knack for scoring goals as he netted 12 last season in the premier league. If Dempsey does move over to Arsenal, expect Fulham to try and quickly replace him with FC Twente’s Bryan Ruiz if the deal is complete, but for now Fulham will cherish every moment it has with Dempsey on its side.

Dutchman Wesley Sneijder possibly moving to Manchester United soon?

31 Aug

Former 2010 Fifa player of the year, Wesley Sneijder has remained in doubt throughout the whole summer that a move to the English side can happen, but admits that while the transfer window is open, anything can happen. There were also rumors of him moving to Real Madrid to play for his former coach at Inter Milan, Jose Mourinho, but those rumors were put to rest within the span of eight hours. Since former teammate, Samuel Eto’o is now gone, Sneijder believes it’s his turn to shine once again and also carry this team on his back like he did a year ago. He also believes the club decided to either sell him or Eto’o, and they chose the younger midfielder over the aging striker, but then again Sneijder would welcome a deal that put him in Old Trafford. He does admit that if he is moved elsewhere before the transfer window closes, he will be truly shocked, but would embrace the move if he dons a United uniform as he complete their championship formula to capture the league title and the Champions League title.
