Arsenal negotiating for winger (video)

Arsenal are locked in negotiations with Dinamo Zagreb attacking midfielder Luka Modric. Arsenal are pushing forward the negotiations to avoid any potential challenges from Bayern Munich for the 9m pound rated player.

Arsene Wenger has been discussing a move with the player’s agents for over a month now, not new for the notoriously slow to finalize a deal Wenger.

If a deal were to be made, it would be a pair of Dinamo Zagreb players after Eduardo Da Silva, who made his first start for Arsenal, joined earlier in the summer.

Apparently Modric's advisers have spent a few days in England recently to speak to a few different clubs about a move for the player.

At 21 years old, he certainly fits the Arsenal age mold well. Modric, who is most effective as a playmaker can play in central midfield or on the left and would cover the holes left by the departure of Freddie Ljungberg and Jose Reyes.

Here is a clip of Modric in action:

Interesting player but Wenger said today that he is nowhere near signing anyone because what he is looking for either does not exist or commandeer to big a fee so i will cast a doubt over this rumour. I hope to be wrong tho!!!!

He's too small, we have too many small players. We need a big fuckin animal kicking lumps out of players like that little shite Robbie Savage.

none of those goals showed him cutting in from the wing. he CAN play on the wing but we don't want someone who can play on the wing we want a WINGER!

Where he used to play doesn't matter so long as he plays well where he gets played. It's easy to forget Ljungberg was only a winger for Arsenal yet nobody even noticed that he's a central midfielder since he was so comfortable on the wing from day 1. I don't give a shit if this guy is naturally a central midfielder so long as he does his job whenever he wears the shirt, whether or not he can I've absolutely no idea. But I'm also sceptical that Wenger will buy him, however I'd be happy if he did.

is it just me being paranoid, but i see this as a potential cover for when we sell cesc to barca/real. He is clearly not a winger. and we have more creative centre mids than any team in england. Something is drastically wrong at the top of arsenal. How can we seriously challenge with the best if we sell players for the sole reason of making a profit. That's not how teams are built - just look at ajax

i really dont get how people are still talking about modric. he was cup tied by playing for zagreb in the champs league qualifiers a week ago, therefore arsene won't even consider signing him. this rumour should have died a week ago if it wasn't for all the shoddy journalism and bloggers

With the trades and acquisitions made going into the draft, plus the bulk of the team that is carried over from last season, and the trades and draft picks made during the draft, it sure seems like the Pats are going to be the team to beat in the AFC this season, and perhaps in all of the NFL.

Considering the Pats were almost in the Superbowl last season with a pathetic receiving corps and that they've added very talented players into said receiving corps this season, barring some nasty injury(ies), they look to be the team to take it all.I say injury(ies) because I think they could survive an injury or two to some positions, but if they lost Brady they'd probably have a hard time recovering.


I wish I could say that the Redskins did well in the draft and/or in free agency but so many holes still exist that I'm not sure they'll be significantly better than last season. I suppose on face they should be if they can keep their corners healthy. With Landry (argh, hard to type that name as a Redskin!!) back there with a healthy secondary they might be able to cheat up more and put more pressure on opposing QBs. Might.

They still have what should be a lot of talent in the receiving positions, and Campbell should be better, but they don't have the quality on either line (offense or defense) that I wish they'd have, so it could be yet another year of .500 at best, or worse.

Still, the NFC East looks to be the NFC Least again this season. None of the teams there look like they'll be that good, and none really look ready to step up and take the division.
