Gunners are eager to sign a top quality striker this summer, someone who could at least score 20 odd goals in the league as they have badly missed one after the departure of Dutch forward Robin van Persie.
Lately, Arsenal have been linked with two top quality forwards i.e. Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain. However, one Arsenal legend does not really want these two world class players at the Emirates next season. The legend in discussion is Tony Adams who is unsure about both players.
Higuain has been heavily linked with gunners and recently reports actually suggest that they are very close to signing him. Higuain is one of the best finishers around and someone that Arsenal badly need, still Tony Adams has other ideas as he claims:
“My fear is that if Real don’t want him, you are coming in under that”
“If you want to compete with Real Madrid, you don’t get their cast-offs. You need the best players in the league to win the league.”
The Argentine has one of the best conversion rate and a prolific record with Los Blancos. Higuain started 19 league games for Mourinho’s side and scored 16 goals last season. Baffling that Tony Adams does not want him.
If that was not enough then the same Arsenal legend has today stated that even Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney might not be a good signing for the Londoners. Understandable that his record for England is not that good, but for United he has been one of the most important players. Yet Tony Adams thinks:
“I’m not sure Wayne Rooney could handle London.That would be a massive risk for me. I don’t think it’s a question of finances, it’s his temperament and mentality. London is a different animal. It takes a different type of player to handle it.”
Adams did claim that Rooney is a super player then why does he not want him. Although, the move is highly unlikely yet the former Evertonian will vastly improve any side he signs for.
Tony Adams has his own ideas based more on his own intuition and less based on facts as both are arguably top players at the peak of their careers and any squad will benefit having them in the side.
