Holy Moses, really?

 

So one of the most recent rumours surrounding Arsenal is that Victor Moses is a target for Arsene Wenger.

With Theo Walcott’s contract situation yet to be resolved, and Gervinho hardly firing on all cylinders, it looks as if the Gunners could be about to add another forward to their collection.

Many of you will have been aware of Moses for some time now, mainly from his time being dubbed as ‘the next big thing’ while he was a teenager at Crystal Palace.

The player was linked to just about every top-flight team while at Selhurst Park, and continued to serve up some delightful performances in the Championship.

However, it all went quiet for a while before everyone remembered the kid with the memorable name, when he signed for Wigan Athletic in 2010 For a fee of around £2.5m.

He took a little while to show his talent and potential at the DW Stadium, but many will have watched on as Moses starred for the Wigan side that were in title-winning form at the end of last season as they yet again beat the drop.

His agent has talked up his client’s departure from the Latics, as he looks to try and scribble his signature at the bottom of a top-club’s contract.

But is Moses really good enough for Arsenal?

Well Chelsea seem to have their sights set firmly on the forward, and surely if he is good enough for the Champions of Europe when they have bought the likes of Eden Hazard and Marko Martin already this summer, then he is good enough for the Gunners.

Speculation has it that a bid of around £12m would be enough to acquire the services of Moses and it would probably spell the end of someone’s time at Arsenal. 

Whether he is better than what the club already has is another story.

I’d rather have Walcott and Gervinho if I’m honest.

While both at times may seem like they don’t have a footballing brain cell between them, there is no denying the fact that both make things happy.

No matter how awful his decision-making, Walcott has the pace that on his day, we’ve seen rip apart the best of Premier League defences, a la Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

And although he might just be clumsier than a bull in a china shop, Gervinho often manages to somehow bundle his way into the penalty area and forge a chance for someone else to take.

I don’t think we need Moses, but like I said, it all entirely depends what happens with other players like Walcott.

I can’t see this one happening though, sorry Christian Gooners.
