Wenger looks at Roque Santa Cruz

Arsene Wenger has set his sights on Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz, after Barcelona showing interest in Adebayor.Though flattered by reports of Barcelona’s interest in him, Adebayor has claimed he is happy at Arsenal.

The club would find it difficult to compete financially with a club of Barcelona’s stature. The Togolese striker’s contract is somewhere in the region of £35,000 a week, and most likely an pay increase would be needed to ensure Adebayor will remain with the Gunners.

The Sun reports: “Blackburn would ask serious money for the Paraguayan if Mark Hughes, the manager, entertains selling at all. Wenger is adamant that if Adebayor leaves, he needs an established replacement in order to keep pace with Manchester United and Chelsea. “

The Paraguay striker joined Blackburn last summer in a £3.5 million move from Bayern Munich. He became an immediate hit in the Premiership, and scored an impressive 19 goals in his first season.

Thrash that money minded freak and get David Villa. He is worldclass and is way better in finishing, eye for goal and free kicks. It wud be a killer partnership with RvP or anyone else and wud also secure Fabregas. Please get VILLA Wenger!!

I would say if monsieur Wenger really want the Cup back and wanna get more Cups, he should get:
1. David Villa or Roque Santa Cruz, but I’ll prefer Villa
2. David Silva
3. Marcos Senna
These 3 Spaniards are what he really needs.
Forget Martins!
