Arsenal transfers: ‘Dimitar Berbatov would fire Gunners to title’
Stewart Robson urges Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to splash the cash and sign Dimitar Berbatov from Fulham
Stewart Robson has urged Arsene Wenger to splash the cash and bring in Dimitar Berbatov to help fire Arsenal to the Premier League title.
The Gunners have been linked with a £2m swoop for the Fulham forward following injuries to first-choice forwards Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner.
If he signs a two-year contract and helps Arsenal win the title this season, then it would be a great move
And former Arsenal midfielder believes that the 32-year-old would be a great addition to the north Londoners’ squad as they look to win the top-flight crown for the first time since 2004.
“Berbatov can do a decent job but it’s a bit of a risk,” Robson told talkSPORT.
“Arsenal are at their best when they play fast free-flowing football. When they pass it slowly, that’s when teams defend well against them. The one thing Berbatov can do is slow everything down.
“I’ve seen him play on many occasions at a high tempo and he can play very well. If you’re asking me who’s the better player between him and Nicklas Bendtner, then it’s got to be Berbatov.
“Berbatov is nearing the end of his career as a top-flight professional.
“If he signs a two-year contract and helps Arsenal win the title this season, then it would be a great move. It would be good for Arsene Wenger to get Berbatov in.”
