Arsenal gets ready 12Million Euros to sign David Villa

Arsenal is not the only club wanting Barcelona striker David Villa as there are a host of other clubs wanting the Spaniard to sign a deal before the January transfer window closes.

According to The Sun newspaper, North London club Arsenal are preparing to offer Barcelona 12Million Euros for David Villa.

The tabloid newspaper is also insisting that Barca will not let the striker go but says that Arsene Wenger is determined to bring David Villa to the Gunners at all costs where Santi Cazorla is enjoying a great first season.

The Sun also say that Villa could force his way out of the Catalan club, too.

david villa might be moving

Arsenal is not the first team to be linked to David Villa this January transfer window and Tito Vilanova doesn’t seem to be counting on him too much lately making the big clubs in Europe to set their sights on him.

One can understand the plight of Villa and also the concerns of Vilanova. Villa obviously wants to play regular football with the first team and Tito is in a quandary as he is able to count on other members of his fantastic squad.

Vilanova doesn’t want to let him go as it would mean big trouble if one of the regular first team members got injured. That obviously doesn’t wash with David Villa as he would rather be playing in all matches and not just counted on for the least important games where Barca are expected to win.

We shall see what the outcome of this long and drawn out affair is very shortly I fear and it looks like Villa may be heading for the Premier League to team up with Cazorla.

  1. Too many transfer speculations,it is now becoming boring. One can only believe what arsene has announced.

  2. GoonerEris says

    Villa will obviously be a good addition to the Arsenal side but I am not sure how keen Wenger would be seeing as he is cup-tied for the Champions league, where his value would be appreciated this season. I fancy Wenger willing to wait till the summer for this one if Barca choose
    To play hard ball.

  3. Should we get Theo or Santi to whitter on about Villa’s “Arsenal DNA” to the media all the time?

  4. Ogori tarilade says

    We need david villa in arsenal that can replaces van.persie goal score machine that is d reason is if arsenal can buy david villa we can finish top four in epl tables and we can even win uefa champion and even epl titles with david villa

  5. I pray and hope unto God that, Arsenal could make it to bring villa to emirate.

  6. Is Villa champions league cup tied?

    As he was injured until November(?) would they have named them in their squad?
    I think it can be slightly changed after the transfer window so perhaps they planned on adding him then if he was playing.

  7. Mr Carter says

    Wenger pls if we can get him it be A nice one for Us,,,we theo & Santi arsenals is on fire

  8. Am tired of al dis speculations.all i want to c is DONE DEALS!!!

    i pray arsenal gets a gud striker nd a defender in dis ongoing transfer window.

  11. quentin prince uwem elisha says

    pls arsene wenger get us david villa nd matt hummels.

  12. If villa comes through, we will get the best of him for 2 more or 3 season wich is worth it, @ the same time giving competition to girou and he will perform, after th@ diamme must join and another solid defender and we set to go. We b good for goals and holding the midfeild! Tighten th@ defence, our backline also need competition! But then again…seeing is beleiving!

  13. Wenger or anger shuld buy aqality player

  16. Ambangile from dar es salaam,tanzania says

    Can’t see any serious effort by oldskul wenger! villa will leave to other clubs just like affelay, think of how we have missed strong and skilful man yanga mbiwa this week to newcastle for just £6.7m..WTF! i say, JESUS will come b4 we can win any tittle with wenger again, kick him out!

  17. Arsene winger should make a January transfer with top players not with those players who fail to be succeeds our best team which is currently looking on attacking striker, no need to be dependent on ones own philosophy, but taking others view if not making the team free.
    no club is competing the gunner for me
    We supporters need radical change not a reform every time
