It sounds like a strange comparison, but think about it. Although van Persie was pretty much the complete striker, he primarily played as a 9 for us in his final season. Quite often he'd take himself out of games and stay up front and central, and there were plenty of games where we said "other than his goal, he didn't contribute that much". Then you consider that the majority of van Persie's goals came from his movement creating excellent tap-in and one-on-one opportunities.

So would Higuain be anything different? Sure, van Persie's skill were much broader than a usual number 9, but contrary to what seems to be popular belief, Higuain is no donkey up front.

Well said. Arsenal needs somebody who can finish. Somebody who can get the ball in the box and put it in the net. Higuain fits that bill perfectly. Arsenal has plenty of other players to do the fancy stuff.

that's the thing, last season proved that we dont

Update on Djourou: Hannover can't pay fee or wages, want a loan. Arsenal far from ready to cover parts of his wages tho, says Dufner (Bild). :facepalm:

If we can trust what the papers say, our targets in the attacking third are: Rooney/Higuain/Villa + Jovetic/Cesc/Grenier.

I don't think it's worth breaking the Arteta + Ramsey duo unless we're signing "top top top quality" (Jovetic or Cesc).

I think we need a proper winger. We need some width as much as we need a Dm imo. Either that or Nacho needs to play more because not many other players on our roster can give us what he does in terms of crossing, serving into the box etc.

higuine did kick out on a sly, then zapata reacted. a sensible referee would have gave them both a yellow and moved on with the game.

So what were Cazorla, Arteta, Walcott, Wilshere and the rest doing out there? If Arsenal was as bad as some of you seem to think, they'd have been relegated.

Seems to be consistent despite being played as second fiddle to Benzema and often playing as a super sub for Madrid.That being said it's imperative that we sign someone who can share the creative load with Cazorla cos Cazorla on his own will find it difficult to create chances match after match as seen this season.Further with Theo often cutting inside and playing as a forward will further result in lack of service for El Pipita.

Either we sign JoJo or at least Grenier otherwise Higgy might not be a success as we expect him to be.

P.S.As for the love,If our fans can love Judas who except for his last 2 years at Arsenal,made more apperances to the Doc rather than the first team,I'm sure Higgy will find himself really loved at Arsenal.

Arsenal will reportedly offer Gervinho as bait to land Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier.

The Gunners are believed to be keen on the 22-year-old, while Les Gones have shown an interest in the former Lille star.

According to The Mirror, the North London club are considering an £8m-plus-player deal to land the France international.

Gervinho has expressed a desire to stay at the Emirates Stadium this summer, despite reports that he has no future at the club.

Lille are reported to be interested in the Ivorian, who has scored just nine Premier League goals since his £10.8m move two years ago.
