So the word on the blogs this morning is that Florent Malouda will be joining Arsenal in the next few days. No concrete quotes as yet, so don’t hold your breath, but I for one would be very happy if it were true. Approaching 27, he would be very experienced for a Wenger signing.
Elsewhere, the papers are still insisting Wenger will leave, because he’s got a year left and DD’s gone (where have we heard that before?), Henry’s off because the Spanish press never talk tosh, and Cesc is off because although he wants to go to Spain at some point, that wouldn’t make a good story, so the tabloids have to say it’s now. Plus he’s loyal to Wenger, and of course we all know he’s leaving.
In other news, the Mirror are claiming that Birmingham want Djourou on a season-long loan. Given that Toure will miss some of the season because of the African Nations Cup, I can’t imagine why someone on the brink of the first team would be allowed to be loaned out.
And that’s it for today.
