Arsenal To Sign Newcastle Full-back Jose Enrique: Newcastle United full-back Jose Enrique is close to being signed-up by Arsenal, according to reports . Magpies manager Alan Pardew told reporters: “He’s made it pretty clear that he still won’t sign a contract and that his future may be elsewhere. I’m not really comfortable with that, but we will have to deal with it.”
While Liverpool may have had some links with 25-year-old Enrique in the past, Wenger’s Gunners is gearing up to be the team to snag the talented Spanish stopper. Enrique joined Newcastle in 2007 and is believed to be eager to play in European competition.
Reports say that Arsenal are “set to boot out Denilson” after a friendly game in Malaysia. The Brazilian midfielder came on at half-time during the game, but was then taken out halfway through the second half. According to the Metro, Denilson stormed off down the tunnel in anger at Wenger’s decision. Arsenal defeated Malaysian XI 4-0.
Samir Nasri, who came off the bench, showed off his talents and impressed throughout the game. Wenger had some good words to say about Nasri at a post game interview.”Samir (Nasri) has always been committed to the team and we saw that today. He did very well coming off the bench. I’m willing to keep him for another year, even if it means we risk losing him for nothing in a year’s time,” Wenger said.
