There have been loads of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with out-of-favour defenders around Europe, including Wayne Bridge, Aly Cissoko and Taye Taiwo, but can any of them compare with the power and Premiership experience of the Brazilian Alex?
Chelsea have made it clear that Andre Villas-Boas wants Alex out of Stamford Bridge as soon as possible, and Arsenal were closely linked with a move for him over a month ago, so why hasn’t he been touted as a perfect loan move this month?
Despite his fantastic skill, Alex has always been a peripheral player at Stamford Bridge but has always excelled whe called upon to perform. Who could forget the fantastic free-kick he scored against Arsenal a few years ago? He hit the ball so hard he had to be taken off injured straight afterwards!
The latest news is that Sebastien Squillaci will have to be used this weekend against Swansea as Arsenal have run out of fit defenders. How many Arsenal fans would agree that Alex would be better than Squillaci, Miquel and Yennaris all rolled together?
Chelsea want rid of him and Arsenal are in dire need. Give Abramovich a ring today, Arsene. You know it makes sense!
