How many times have Manchester City come calling for Arsenal players after all the time and effort Arsene Wenger has gone into developing these young talents? It looks like the shoe is on the other foot. Now Manchester City are getting rid of their players but is there really any player Arsenal would be interested in?
The player who cost us the league title after THAT slip very similar to Steven Gerrard (I forgot which year). Still has pace and can be quite a formidable defender on his day. Still, if there is one position where Arsenal is comfortable, it is left back.
Is it just me or has he gained weight? He will never be forgiven by the Arsenal fans and the fact that his career, despite winning a couple of Premier League medals, has never really taken off after his acrimonious move will give the fans some satisfaction.

Currently looks disinterested at Manchester City but his talent has never been in doubt. He is the type of player any coach would love to have but his arrival would stunt the growth of some players. This is a tough one but in all likelihood all Arsenal fans would welcome this transfer.
This transfer is most likely to happen especially due to the fact that it is a free transfer and Wenger can smell a bargain from a mile away. He would improve our squad and his build would give us more bulk and strength in the centre of midfield although it has to be said he has been criticized for his conservative nature.
Manuel Pellegrini should be fired for the simple reason of misusing this player. I have always been a massive fan ever since his time at Fiorentina. A typical Arsenal player with as close to perfect technique as Tomas Rosicky with a killer instinct in front of goal. His value has diminished somewhat so perhaps Arsenal should thank Pellegrini for that although most likely Juventus will come calling for him again.
