Arsenal close to sealing £10m deal & Wenger’s battle for £7m Frenchman – Best of AFC

The race for third place is hotting up and Arsenal face a real fight to hang on to their dreams of automatic qualification to next seasons Champions League. A 0-0 draw last week opened the door for the resurgent Magpies to close the gap and they’re now breathing down the Gunners’ neck. One potential factor that could hamper their hopes of fulfilling their objectives is Robin Van Persie’s scoring drought. Despite notching 34 this season the Dutchman has experienced a testing time in front of goal of late finding the net just once in his last seven games. 46 games in all competitions for Van Persie have taken it’s toll on the striker who’s looked a weary and lethargic in recent weeks. Wenger will be desperate for his captain to rediscover his goal touch in Arsenal’s three remaining fixtures and fire them into Europe’s elite club competition.

This week on FFC a potential transfer target’s suitability to Arsenal’s current system is analysed and  could a move to the Emirates Stadium be the best way to go for a recently departed European coach?

Quote of the Week


“He took his role seriously on and off the pitch and I think it added something to his determination as well. That is why maybe his commitment was even stronger – because he feels more responsibility. He grew into this role.

“The best way to be a captain for me is to be a fantastic football player, that is the best way to get respect in your team. He did that remarkably well.” Arsene Wenger believes the Arsenal captaincy proved the catalyst for Robin Van Persie’s prolific season
