Arsenal transfers: ‘Sánchez and Debuchy can fire Gunners to the title’
Arsenal transfers: Edu backs Alexis Sánchez and Mathieu Debuchy to help the Gunners win the title next season
Edu believes that the arrivals of Alexis Sánchez and Mathieu Debuchy could help Arsenal win their first Premier League title since 2004 next season.
The Gunners are widely reported to be closing in on deals to bring the Barcelona winger and Newcastle right-back to Emirates Stadium ahead of the 2014-15 campaign.
And former Arsenal midfielder Edu, who spent four seasons at the north London club between 2001 and 2005, reckons the pair would prove to be astute signings by manager Arsene Wenger.
“Arsenal are still in my heart and I still follow Arsene Wenger,” Edu told talkSPORT. “I have a big relationship with that club.
“If they sign them [Sánchez and Debuchy] of course Arsene Wenger is very clever.
“Everybody knows he is good at signing players, particularly young ones, and they can give good things to Arsenal and make them better and stronger as they look to win the Premier League.”
