Arsene Wenger is a man who isn’t known for discussing Arsenal’s transfer business.
Whether you like it or love it, it is very rare that the Frenchman will opt to talk about potential ins and outs at the club.
Even this summer, Le Prof. pretended that he had never heard of Santi Cazorla, before splashing £15m on the Spaniard having enquired about him the year before.
However, one man who Wenger isn’t ruling out is Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.
The England international hasn’t featured as much as he would have liked at Stamford Bridge over the last couple of years and time is running down on his contract with the Blues.
While we’ve all had a pop at ‘Fat Frank’ before, I would welcome the addition of Lampard.
The deal just seems a win-win for both Arsenal and Lampard.
The Gunners get an experienced Premier League midfielder who has won numerous major honours throughout his career. He also possesses a top attitude and real quality.
The man is also a leader, and would embed perfectly in our midfield trio and wouldn’t have to change his personal life either, remaining in London.
You don’t need me to tell you that being an Arsenal fan doesn’t make you the happiest person in the world at the moment.
After what looked to be a decent start to the season, the optimism for the remainder of the campaign all but seems to have evaporated from the Emirates Stadium.
The signs had been good as well, with the new boys coming in and the returns of Abou Diaby and Jack Wilshere all pointing to positive times ahead.
How things change.
A squad, which is still relatively young and lacking in a lot of Premier League experience, seems to have been completely drained of confidence, self-believe and a positive attitude.
It’s no secret the players have hit a low, and the fact that the likes of Wenger, Steve Bould and Mikel Arteta have all come out and confirmed that matter in the media proves just how bad it has got.
Brining in a player such as Lampard, even on loan, could provide a much-needed boost to both the fans and the team. He is certainly one who the likes of Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey etc could learn from.
