    Default Arsenals new signing?

    By reports we have just signed (or going to sign) Reyes from Sevilla.
    Herd he is good, but £20 million ?
    I am a bit worried to tell you the truth.
    If he is coming for that, someone is going!!!
    What you fellas think? :nowords:

    he is a great player and has great skill.. he plays left midfield and likes to drift in.. the problem is, you already have Pires doing this, so where would he fit in? he is too good to be on the bench.. he has lots of pace and wenger could possibly convert him into a forward, like he did with Henry..

    That is what i mean.
    We have plenty of left sided players.
    I have got a feeling someone is off !!

    Great buy in my opinion, 22, great skill and great pace..

    jeffers, pennant, van bronk, deffinately off, reyes will play just behind henry, in a bergkamp position (who incidently i recon will only play one more year). if he does play left side pires will go into more of a free role .. btw £16.6 million from reports. should be in squad against man city if medical goes ok, oh and he is ok to play in the cl & he's not scared of flying !!!

    He's only 20 m8 - £20m????? Don't you think you would have been better off signing another centre half or a sane goalkeeper?

    I think your gonna keep him but he's not exactly set the world on fire up there though.from what i hear he like too many beers and has an attitude problem

    still he hasnt been played in the fa cup as to avoid being cup tied so maybe arsen has plans for him. he may go along with jeffers at end of season

    You're right. Keeping upright throughout the game? What's his problem? No room for a bloke like that at Library. :tongue

    waste, hmmm we'll see . from what i hear the spanish fa will not envoke his game ban so he should be in the squad for sunday, official presentiation will be tommorrow lunchtime & he's getting the no 9 shirt ( bye, bye jeffers)

    i think there has always been the money there but due to our striker injuries wenger & the board acted fast. Wenger has always wanted reyes and now hes got him.

    reyes is one of thee best young players in the world. he is definitely in the top 3. a major coup that can will fit in perfectly with the world class (i mean REAL world class ) players such as viera, pires, henry, bergkamp etc. an important point to remember is that he doesn't just have one trick (i.e step-over-step-over etc.), he doesn't dive in his own half and he actually **has** some skill.

    Reyes will provide another good buy for Wenger - seen him play a few times on S Sports - and United were linked with him earlier in the year.... said he never wanted to leave Spain - but money talks as per usual

    its not £20 million.
    I've heard that is only £9 million + bonuses which could rise to a maximum £20 million so they will onyl be paying the £9 million now and the rest (if any) later.

    Don't know where they are going to play him, i'd like to see him play upfront alongside Henry which could make them even more devastating going forward

    Wiltord is leaving, i can almost guarantee that.
    Kanu will go (possibly retire?) but he has never really been on fire at his time at Arsenal, he plays alot better for Nigeria than he does for Arsenal.
    Jeffers wont come back
    Pennant wont come back

    wiltord wanted a 4 year deal but arsenal would only offer a 2 year one, i heard he was taking this but maybe the goalposts will move now reyes has signed.

    jeffers has lost his squad number so i guess thats telling him something !!
