Adebayor = £30mil + Yoann Gourcuff..Is it Relevant?

AC MILAN have reportedly offered Arsenal their young playmaker Yoann Gourcuff in a last-ditch effort to sign Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Rossoneri were thought to be out of the running for prolific Togolese striker Adebayor - who is also attacting Barcelona - after baulking at the Gunners' £36million asking price.

But the Italian giants seem determined to snap up the 24-year-old and media sources believe they have now offered the north Londoners £10-rated Gourcuff as well as £30million in cash for his services.

Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of 22-year-old Gourcuff and it appears that the youngster's inclusion in the deal has persuaded the Arsenal boss to agree - with the deal possibly wrapped up as early as next week.

Gourcuff was one of the brightest young talents in Europe when he moved to Milan from Rennes in 2006.

However, the Frenchman's progress has stumbled, with Milan even shipping him out on a season-long loan deal to Bordeaux.


  1. yes please. I'd be for getting Gourcuff and let Wenger work his magic (but only if Gourcuff wants to come!!) and with the change I'd buy Huntelaar ;) good business all round. Huntelaar can score for fun, yes he plays in the dutch league but his scoring record is excellent, even at internetional level and if Ade can score 30 goals when given the servicen imagine what a natural finisher can do.. does anyone else agree? or am i spoutin' out of me?

  2. gourcuff and cash for ade

    yaya and cash for hleb

    use the cash to buy striker and keeper and central defender

  3. yes i'm agree with u pal.. with the cash we can bring more quality player like david silva. and i also like that falcao-guy. he's scoring record was awesome.i admit it, eventhough i never watch him play.heee

  4. Umm Good we can get Huntelaar too

  5. huntelaar is a good bargain too. grab him ASAP wenger!

  6. Yep, 30 mln and YOhan would be nice in the case , we can't keep Adebayor ... :(

    After the problem would be, to bring in a change for him. have no ideas..

  7. yeah.yohan is a good prospect you know..forget adebayor,buy another striker with the cash...
