PICTURE: Proof that Arsenal will sign Cabaye?

Image for PICTURE: Proof that Arsenal will sign Cabaye?

Newcastle midfielder Yohan CabayeThe latest Newcastle United transfer news suggests that Arsenal will be bidding for star Magpies midfielder Yohan Cabaye before the transfer window shuts on Friday, with plenty of money being put on the move at www.freebets.org.uk. There’s even been club shop imagery on Twitter appearing to show that you can buy an Arsenal shirt with the Frenchman’s name on the back, but is this proof that he will join the Gunners this week?

With a little over 48 hours to go until the transfer window shuts, Newcastle are nearly there and have done well to hold onto all of their star players thus far. However, with Arsenal having sold Alex Song to Barcelona, Arsene Wenger has money burning a hole in his pocket that could be put towards the purchase of Yohan Cabaye.

Cabaye had an excellent first season on Tyneside and as a result his value has rocketed from less than £5 million, the amount that Newcastle paid Lille for the services of the Frenchman a little over 12 months ago, to somewhere in the region of £20m.

Whether Newcastle would even sell at that price remains to be seen, and we’ll only know if they would if Arsenal make a firm bid in the coming days, but a picture is doing the rounds on Twitter, which is getting Gunners fans very excited indeed.

It was Tweeted earlier today by @AFC_Followers this morning and appears to show the Arsenal club shop website this morning and the ability to purchase an Arsenal shirt with Cabaye and the number 17 on the back, a squad number not currently used by the Gunners.

So what do you make of the following photo? Has to be fake…

Here’s a much better image Tweeted by @NUFCrumours with the following text: “Yes, Cabaye’s name on the #AFC website is real…..for sure….here’s a list of their other new signings….#NUFC”

  • Popcorn says:

    There are so many indicators within these two pictures pointing towards this being fake, and whilst i love cabaye as a player i think arsene is looking for a much more defensive minded midfielder.

  • Paul says:

    Absolute load of Tosh, gooners are to thick to realise that we might actually look on there site not only that its not a page from the “official” site anyway

  • Gooner says:

    Yeah right! “they are not better than us”……bla bla bla. Remind me again, is Newcastle united in the champs league this season?………..try 15 consecutive seasons of champs league football, that’s the kind of thing that gets you the good players, not a decent top 10 finish. Use your brain not your mouth, before saying some things!!!

    Everybody is supposing we want to sign Cabaye, I’ve seen him play, he’s mediocre at best
