Obviously AVB was impressed enough with the qualities of Emmanuel Adebayor with the Toga international re-joining Spurs on what looks like a permanent deal.

As Arsene Wenger has seen all his main transfer targets fall by the wayside, it seems that Arsenal will have no choice but to meet Swansea's valuation of £25m for their Spanish striker Michu after just one good season in the Premiership.

The Gunners 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season has caused such an outcry from the Arsenal faithful that Wenger will be subjected to serious abuse from the fans if he doesn't spend a substantial part of the so-called £70m+ transfer fund in the next couple of weeks, and Michu seems like the only proven Premiership striker available that could calm down the irate supporters.
