Arsenal set for £5 million Valencia bargain

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is trying to set up a £5 million bargain deal for Valencia defender Raul Albiol, according to the Daily Mirror.

Albiol, 22, who can play in central defence or as a holding midfield player, is currently with Spain at Euro 2008, and came on as a second half substitute in their Group D win over Sweden.

Valencia, who only narrowly avoided the drop last season, have built up large debts at the club which could spark a wild transfer spree which may see a mass exodus of top names leave the Mestalla. Albiol is expected to join David Villa, Joaquin, David Silva and Miguel in an exodus at Valencia.

Albiol, 22, has proved himself to be a quality defender at Valencia where he has established himself to gain a regular position in the Los Ches team. Albiol would fit in with Wenger’s usual style of signings, and his versatility is something that Wenger reportedly admires.

To be fair we ain’t done too bad so far with the basement buys but we ain’t won nowt just the same. It’s so annoying when us Gooners read in the papers a few months ago that we were one of the richest clubs in the world. This can’t go on forever if we ain’t got the lolly (or have we? and the boss is not spending it?) we have to either invite Stan The Man on board… Read more »
