Franck Ribery to Arsenal; Gallas too?

This is a great bit of news for the Gunners. Ribery has been snapped up by Wenger for £13.5m and a deal for William Gallas is in the works now that Ashley Cole is closer to being signed on by Chelsea.
Franck Ribery: Extremely fast with the ball at his feet, good ball control, tireless down the flanks, and feeds the ball. His one-two with Vieira in the Togo match was a little gem. Will be great in tandem with Ljungberg, another speedster. Hopefully he settles down to his new club and lets go off that attention deficit disorder that seems to have plagued his earlier career. I see nothing but good stuff for this kid in Arsenal. The Gunner line has plenty of pace ahead with Henry, Ribery, Walcott, and Ljungberg.
Gallas was brought to Chelsea from Olympique Marseille for £6.2m. If Cole is worth £25m, Gallas is easily about £20m. If this deal goes through then Arsenal have made a profit of £5 m and found the perfect replacement for Sol.
He is a physically intimidating presence with great pace, good off the air, and comes far up the field. However his preference seems to be for a La Liga club, possibly Real Madrid.
With Franck Ribery and William Gallas at Emirates, it is not too difficult seeing Arsenal taking the top spot in the Premiership this season.

  1. Where has this story come from? you sure on ya facts? If this is true its great news, Ribery is class!

  2. Gallas worth £20 mil? Come on!
    more like 7-8. Id say £15 mil plus Gallas will give the rotten russians Judas Cole.

  3. Oooh, calm down mate, you shouldn’t believe everything you read in The Guardian you know. Read the latest quotes from Arsene and the Ribery rumour looks fanciful at best. All we know for sure is that Ribery’s agent wants him to move to Arsenal. Gallas is unlikely for all sorts of reasons, not least among them the fact that he’s skulked back to the Bridge to collect a new squad number and pose for the team photo. Expect him to stay (probably with a nice payrise).

  4. R u kidding me, Gallas worth 20 mil? Given he has 1 year left on his contract and will turn 29 this fall I’d say he’s worth between 6-8 mil.

  5. Gallas and Ribery transfers to Arsenal are just crap rumours in the media.Wenger has already dismissed the Ribery rumour and Gallas would not be allowed to come to Arsenal by Chelsea even if wanted to – which is extremely doubtful.Wenger is only looking for experienced defenders who are currently available and Gallas is not one of them.

  6. I doubt if this information is correct,Wenger just made a comment that there’s no where to play ribery in the arsenal squad.
