I think this is a positive move by Arsene Wenger and Arsenal in trying to lure Franck Ribery to the Emirates.
However Marseille is not just going to sit around and sell the talented frenchman for peanuts, nope, they intend to keep him but the recent statement by Marseille’s sporting director Jose Anigo suggests that the club has come to terms that it is almost impossible to keep the player at the club.
Anigo has confirmed the Premiership (Arsenal) club approached Marseille and held talks in the summer, though no transfer was agreed.
Fresh speculation has suggested Ribery will move to England in January but Anigo has reiterated a price has not been set.
‘I must make this clear,’ he told the club’s website. ‘There is no agreement with Arsenal nor with any other European club.
I really really think that Ribery will excel in London with Arsenal as the Gunners already have talented young players like Van Persie,Hleb,Fabregras,Adebayor etc..
Hopefully the deal will go through so that people like you and me can enjoy watching them play week in week out in the English Premier League :D.
