Arsene Wenger says he might be in the market for a full back on loan when the transfer window opens but it all depends on the extent of Kieran Gibbs’ injury.
As reported earlier, Gibbs has had a setback and there are fears he could miss another significant chunk of the season. With Andre Santos out until March following surgery it leaves Arsenal short of options at left back and the manager says a loan signing might be an option.
“It depends now on Gibbs,” the boss told the official site. “He sees a specialist again today [Tuesday] and if something happens there that he has had a real setback then possibly, yes.
“It is not a shop, you just take a good opportunity that is on the market when you can. Overall that’s what we are doing at the moment. We are starting to look at players if Gibbs is not back.”
There has already been a suggestion that Wenger could move for Man City’s Wayne Bridge. The former England man has been frozen out at the Middle Eastlands but there have been reports that Bridge is quite content to pick up his wages and maintain his celebrity lifestyle.
Arseblog News understands the need for a loan rather than a permanent signing but surely we can do better than a guy who has played just one game all season and is, let’s face it, a bit crap anyway. And a twat (even though he does hate John Terry – so do all of us but that doesn’t mean we should play left back for Arsenal).
Let’s hope that the manager and his people manage to find someone who will fit the bill better this washed up, hapless ex-Chelsea (I mean, what could go wrong there) hasbeen.
Plus I’ve never forgiven him for that goal in the Champions League. It smacks of Sylvester. But worse.
