Torsten Frings is the surprise name in today’s transfer news and rumours, with the German veteran being linked to Arsenal today by The Sun newspaper.
According to The Sun, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger sees Frings as an ideal replacement for the now departed Mathieu Flamini. Frings would make an unusual change to Wenger’s usual “young guns” signings, but the German would certainly have no problems fitting in with the English style of football.
Frings, 31, currently plays in the German Bundesliga for Werder Bremen and is an all-action, box-to-box, versatilemidfielder. Frings was famously involved in the brawl between Germany and Argentina in the 2006 World Cup, where FIFA determined that he punched Argentine forward Julio Cruz during the chaos.
Frings has represented the German national side on 73 occasions and could bring valuable experience to an Arsenal side desperate for silverware. Reports value the German at Ã‚Â£4 million, which would be seen as a bargain by Wenger for a much needed midfielder.
