Arsenal travel to QPR on Saturday and as Arsene Wenger has reiterated today they only have one thing on their minds – winning three points.
Maybe afterwards though Arsene will sit down for post match cuppa with Harry and talk about the future of several QPR players.
The most obvious one is Julio Cesar who seems to have emerged as Arsenal’s number one goalkeeping target.
Wenger is clearly keen and Cesar wants to leave. But Harry is obviously angling for as big a fee as possible. He told Sky Sports
“He’s a top, top goalkeeper. There’s no doubt about that. He’s a Brazil international so for him to play in the Championship next year would be difficult. I can understand that.”
“But he’s a good goalkeeper. It would take a good offer. How this game works is you buy players and those who don’t do well, you’re stuck with them but those who do well, they think they’ll walk away for nothing.
“You’ve got to get what you feel is value for him. He’s going to cost decent money if anyone wants to buy him. He’s a good goalkeeper.”
Wenger might also have word about Loic Remy. Wenger said of him today at his press conference.
“I’ve known him for years,” said Wenger. “He is a very efficient striker.”
He may only cost £8 million too. If Arsenal fail to qualify for the Champions League then he may end up rivaling Frenchman Olivier Giroud in leading the line next year. If Arsenal do grab a CL spot then he could be teaming up with Stevan Jovetic.
Then there’s a certain Chris Samba too.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
