As the Premier League published their official list of released players by the clubs, there were a few interesting names that popped up on the list.
And this would be the perfect time Arsene Wenger to flex his “new found spending power” and bring in a few free agents.
Florent Malouda from Chelsea is only 32 and is French which is perfect for Arsene. Mark Schwarzer, a long term target for Arsenal is another player released from his club. Could he come in and help coach the goalkeepers at Arsenal?
Other names that pop up are Roque Santa Cruz and Zoltan Gera, who are 31 and 34 respectively.
These players may be old but that hasn’t stopped Arsene before – we’ve brought back Jens Lehmann, Sol Campbell and Thierry Henry before and to decent effect.
In a time when we’re looking to trim the fat, we could do worse than bring in decent squad players with a lot of experience, on top of bringing in proven quality that we all hope Arsene will bring in with his war chest.
