Video Evidence: Probable signing Obafemi Martins

He’s got pace, strength and lethal finishing – qualities that are enough to fill Emmanuel Adebayor’s void.

Martins was once linked with an Arsenal move during the summer of 2007 when Henry departed, and he may well be a good consideration if Arsene Wenger intends to bolster his attack.

The 24-year-old who is younger and a much proven striker than Marouane Chamakh could also come cheaper than he would have two years ago. With the relegated Newcastle desperate to offload well-paid employees, a reported £7 million price tag is what’s placed on this Nigerian talent who was once a prodigy at Inter Milan.

Here was Obafemi’s best at Inter

  1. why dont arsenal ever buy anyone good? havent u got any money, or does just noone want to play for you? Your best player has just gone to Man City, of all places! He might as well have gone to Southampton. You lot are such a joke!

  2. Our best player has gone to City?

    Haha, I was about to reply to your thoughts until I read that. Now realized you’re one of those who deserve to be ignored.

    Haha! YOU’RE the joke. Adebayor was far from our best player. He had one great season, the rest of the time he moaned and wandered into offside. Why don’t we buy anyone good? Well, Wneger likes to develop players, not buy them (not that I fully agree with that way of doing it) but a certain Russian came in January. If he isn’t good I don’t know who is.

    Oh, and Wenger won’t buy Martins. He’s been linked with us the the beginningof time, yet Wenger doesn’t seem keen, plus he said YESTERDAY he wasn’t in a hurry to buy. Nor do I think he’s good enough (Highlight reels doesn’t prove much, I’m afraid).

  4. Why u all saying crap! Martins my ass! Wat of huntelar,chamahk or edzin. Martins is just another RVP Cos is goddamn injury prone.anoda greedy guy in d making.

  5. haha Adepaymemore our best player you have got to be joking! tbh i shouldn’t have even replied to your lameness

  6. Way too much acrobatics, he could get hurt although i would like to see him in our squad more than klaas and maroune. He’s experianced DAMN FAST and has great shoot tehnique, accuaracy and power. What else would we wont with all those beautifull assists from cesc,nasri,persie,arshavin and now final rosicky again. He is the one that can put those balls where they belong, behind goalkeeper. xD

  7. First, Flamini..now, Martins? Are you guys serious? Neither of these guys are coming to Arsenal! Get over it! All you can do is WAIT! Arsene, will never reveal who he is buying! I’m still upset (sort of) with Ade’s departure! I have been defending how we can cope without, Ade. I hate talking to Chelsea and ManU fans! ugh!

  8. ARSENE NO DOUBT OBAFEMI IS GD,IS A GD BUY..WILL CLIQUE WELL WITH THE REST OF THE TEAM..GD IN HIS BOTH FEED,PROVEN GOAL SCORER,ALWAYS EYEING FOR GOAL..TIME TO FILL THOSE EMPTY CABINET ONCE AGAIN AND YEARS TO COME FOR THE SAKE OF ALL GUNNERS FAN!!!

  9. i think it’s high time arsene started giving us hope by buying quality players coz as far as im concerned, this present squad wont lift any silver wear come may 10.1st, we neeed a good striker though we have eduardo and rvp people should stop including bendtners name coz to me he is not near good enough. arsene should get us klaas huntlear,i think he’s the best available striker now and no one else. we should also go for a DM coz it’s obvious we dont really have a good one at the moment, no disrespect to denilson and esp song he is developing but we cant wait anylonger coz sometimes i loose faith in our squared esp when we are hit with injuries, we are goona be needing experienced players on the bench and failure to produce a good substitute when a first team player is down always cost us.plz lets shout out to mr wenger we are tired of playing fourth and lets emulate barcelona they play beautiful football like us and they still win things.PLZ SEND SOME COMMENTS TO THIS ARTICLE, I’LL LIKE TO KNOW PEOPLES OPINION. IN ARSENE WE TRUST, GOONAS 4 LIFE.
