Today’s newspapers went crazy claiming that Frenchman Arsene Wenger managed to turn Sahin around from joining Liverpool, and that a phonecall was all it took for the Turkish international to join the Gunners.
According to Meto.co.uk, Arsene Wenger has managed to convince Sahin to join and thus replace Song in a record-breaking time, with a world-class midfielder. Even though Sahin has been injured the whole length of last season, Mourinho’s staff claimed that the former Dortmund star is now a serios competitior for the squad, but not for the defensive midfielder role where Real Madrid is packed, but for the left-back role.
“The Frenchman, who is fluent in German, called Sahin over the weekend and convinced him to move to north London, in a personal touch that has seen the Gunners edge ahead.
Sahin is now expected in England in the next 48 hours ahead of a medical with Arsenal, before signing on a season-long loan.”
With Arsene Wenger now very close to bringing in Sahin, it’s fair to say that Arsenal will have a strong team this season. The Gunners might still bring in some midfield reinforcements after Wenger claimed that he was unsatisfied about the build-up play against Sunderland. Who do you think should still join?
