    There is a lot being said about something that hasn’t happened yet.
    In some of the other articles on the same site it mentions himleaving
    for vacation and leaving things up to his business manager.
    Also says that Ajax want a player in return & Arsene is not interested
    in that. Also refers to our ex player and scout Tony Adams.

    Just doesn’t seem legitimate.

    i think it’s still just a rumour. I think Arsenal need to buy a strong striker who can score goals.

    He is the player that can make a team. His attitude/skill combination rocks. If it will not work out Arsenal can still sell for alot of money. He will impress many in the future, but he needs time.
