Arsenal Rumours: Chamakh + Squillaci for Hazard..sounds good to me!

| October 7, 2011 | 17 Comments

Disappointingly Hazard didn't join the Gunners this summer

According to recent reports, Wenger will continue his attempts to land Lille starlet Eden Hazard this January and is ready to offer the Ligue 1 champions striker Marouane Chamakh and centre back Sebastien Squillaci in a players+cash deal for the highly rated 20 year old playmaker.

It’s common knowledge that Arsene Wenger is a long time admirer of the young Belgian international and it is believed that if Lille may give in to a substantial offer in January, with a few clubs monitoring progress in negotiations for Hazard pushing the asking price higher.

Hazard will be cup tied for the remainder of the Champions League which will naturally warn off other sides to place a bid in January, however Wenger may wish to make the sacrifice in order to secure his signature.

Squillaci has never adapted to England and was deemed surplus to requirements over the summer, however a move away never eventuated. For Chamakh, his first year at Arsenal started vibrantly netting a succession of goals, however he supposedly suffered from ‘burnout’ and ended the season with a goal drought.

Hazard has been in fine form this term, netting four goals and three assists in nine matches, and is valued at around £25m. Will the inclusion of two international level players, both with significant Ligue 1 experience, perhaps with some extra cash be sufficient for Lille boss Rudi Garcia to part ways with his prized asset? It seems highly unlikely, but would almost be an ideal buy for the Gunners if they can purchase another striker too.

    Offer them Bendtner instead of Chamakh and that would be a killer deal!! IMO Chamakh is still a better striker than Bendtner, and when he is in form he offers alot more.

    @ieuan if you have more than one brain cell you will know that sqillaci was a good player at sevilla, if you hava any brain cell you wil know that not every player can adapt to english league. you dont need any brain to know that he already played many games for france, since lille are in france they may have enough brain to know his strenght.

    Like Forlan or Veron, Squillaci’s a good player – he’s just not a fit for England or Arsenal. He’s played well at every club he’s been at. He played in a CL final with Monaco, won the championship with Lyon and won the UEFA Cup with Sevilla. These are not things a hopeless defender does and clubs in France would be glad to have him (and definitely Chamakh for that matter).

    Why not offer Arshavin & Chamakh for Hazard and Sow

    We can use Squillaci & Hoyte to tempt Ajax into selling Vertonghen and Van der Weil.

    Hopefully Rennes will be interested in a p/ex deal involving Diaby for Mvila

    Sochaux might take Rosicky in p/ex for Martin

    and Bolton might take Djourou, Eastmond, Watt and Murphy in a swap for Cahill.

    Well you started all this silliness!!
