£17million For Gabby? You're Aving A Laff!

£17million For Gabby?  You're Aving A Laff!

Sami Mokbel of the Daily Star has a very daft report in the paper this morning saying that Arsenal will bid £17million in the summer for Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor

He's not for sale. I know for a fact he is very highly rated by Martin O'Neill as is our other and even younger striker Nathan Delfouneso so why on earth would we be selling a striker for such a 'low' fee? Not only is he an England international, he is also nowhere near the finished product. gabby back

Jermain Defoe was similar at Gabby's age and now four years on, look at him!

The report says that Arsene Wenger has watched Gabby a good few times and if not for the fact he 'blows hot and cold' scoring wise, he'd have moved for him before. Well, he is young and learning, he has been consistent each season with goals scored but looks to have taken a leap forward this season after what looks to have been a determined summer of training following a very rough patch from Christmas to the end of the last season. That shows he has application and ambition surely?

So would you sell Gabby? That is our latest poll question and yes, I do realise this is just press talk with no real quotes, sources or substance, but hey, we have to talk about something! :o)

All this "he's still young and learning" stuff really annoys me. Qwen and Rooney were established internationals with World Cup experience hehind them at Gabby's age. Will he make South Africa next summer? Highly unlikely. I think Gabby is better than Vassell, but atm that's all I can say.

Saurat. Rooney, Owen and Torres are exceptional players and that sort is few and far between, Most players take longer to mature, Gabby is getting better every season (this season especially) if he can keep his consistancy he will go to S.Africa.

I feel this is simple - ignore the transfer fee, it could be £100million, who could we realistically get that is better, that would also join us as we are a long way of established top 4 at the moment? But you are right Fear, no chance - £30million i think would be O'Neils minimum if his arm were severly twisted. Now Heskey for £17million, go go go :-) I'm sorry that was uncalled for!
