Obafemi Martins to swap Newcastle United for Arsenal

According to the Sun, Newcastle’s Obafemi Martins has been told he can leave St James’ Park if any of his suitors should match or better his ₤15million price tag. However, the 23 year old Nigerian international could go for less if he hands in a transfer request, which would trigger a ₤13million release clause.

Arsenal has long been linked with Martins, but manager Arsene Wenger has so far refused to budge from his ₤11million evaluation of the former Internazionale star. However, the Frenchman may well give up an extra ₤2million as his squad will look desperately low on firepower if he does not make some key purchases this summer.

The Gunners will be without Eduardo da Silva for the first few months of next season, while Robin van Persie is yet to prove he can regain the form he had before injury and Emmanuel Adebayor appears certain to leave the Emirates for Barcelona or Milan.

Having recently agreed a new ₤80,000 per week deal only to have it scrapped at the last moment as the Magpies seek to cut their wage bill, Martins may be well inclined to look for work elsewhere.

No! No! No! boss please don’t sign Martins. This player is so used to being on the losing side it may well rub off on us. They say you’re aiming to bring in this long time target so boss please keep on missing him and aim for better strikers like Villa, Huntelaar Rocky Santa etc etc.PLLeazzzzzze!!!!!!!!

This is the time to drag Martins to Arsenal, he’s a utility player,very agile,strong,can beak thru any deffence if balls comes to him at the right time.He has a very powerful shoots and very fast and mobile i think we should go for what’s available for us now instead of speculations of buying people who does not have interest in playing in Arsenal colour.Martins is one of the most available player we can bring on to Emirate.If Wenger has been on Martins tale for a long time then the player has something that every other people never see in him… Read more »

Yes,Martins will be a good replacement for Adebayo whom I believe his spirit has long departed Arsenal.Wenger should go for Obagoal.

i think Obagoal will be very much needed at the Emirates stadium because he has all the potentials of being the best striker in the world under the tutorship of Arsene Wenger. Gunners for life.

Obafemi Martins is a formidable player.He is one player that can single handedly
change the tide in any match if given the necessary support.I believe he will do a
very good job at Arsenal.In my opinion, Martins was underutilized at Newcastle.
He did not realise his full potential at Newcastle.I think its time for him to move on
Arsenal or no Arsenal.
