Arsenal to lodge shock bid for Gareth Barry

Liverpool are having a torrid time trying to negotiate a reasonable transfer fee with Aston Villa for Gareth Barry. The two clubs have been locked in negotiations for better part of the last month and still no deal has been reached as Aston Villa refuse to budge.

The Villans insist that their captain is worth £18 million, but cash-strapped Benitez is reluctant to offer that much money. Now, Arsenal look to benefit from Liverpool’s hesitancy, according to The Sun.

Arsene Wenger has lost Mathieu Flamini and could lose Gilberto Silva this summer. This has left Arsenal’s midfield compartment stretched and, according to the report, Wenger would like to bring in Gareth Barry to fill that gap.

The same report goes on to say that Arsenal would be prepared to offer cash plus one of their fringe players to sweeten the deal. Should that prove not to be enough, Wenger will hope that the potential sales of Hleb and Adebayor will boost his chances of landing the midfielder.

You’ve got to be kidding me! If these assholes think that they’re gunna steal gareth barry from right under our noses they’re smoking something else. G-d help every arsenal fan I know if arsenal sign. All arsenal fans ever talk about is how classy they are. This would be the most scum bag move I’ve ever seen in the transfer market in the past decade if arsenal do infact sign him.

Liverpool for the 08/09 title
YNWA!!!!!

How is bidding for a player wrong? You act like Barry is already Liverpools property or something. As if because Liverpool bid for a player no one else allowed too. That’s just stupid talk. Obviously he will go to the highest bidder or the best deal for Aston Villa.
