Arsenal: Arsene Wenger after Demba Ba?

Arsenal fans are in high demand of some true quality players this coming January transfer window. But Arsene Wenger has previously stated that he will only buy a “superstar” standard of player, rather than just unnecessary additions.

For many “Gooners”, Senegalese striker, Demba Ba would be a desired acquisition for the London club, who have struggled this season to show the form in the league that their clubs past would expect.

The 27 year old has scored 11 goals this season, with 16 last, since moving to Newcastle United in the summer of 2011 – and with the transfer window arriving very soon, this story is gathering pace.

The thing is;

Demba Ba is believed to have a clause in his contract, which remarkably, is a £7m buy-out clause.

This leaves Newcastle vulnerable for Demba Ba’s departure this January, with such a bargain low price tag.

Newcastle’s boss, Alan Pardew admitted last week,

“I think he will stay, but there’s a possibility he could go because of the clause that’s still in force.

The situation could be one Arsenal could benefit from – but certain media sources have decided he 100% wont be after Demba Ba.

However, Wenger has only spoke out on a possible transfer prior to this weekends fixture against Demba Ba’s side, Newcastle.

 “I don’t think [this] is the right place to speak about that, because he plays against us [on Saturday]..

“I wouldn’t like to put Newcastle or us or him in an uncomfortable position.”

One would think that an impressive performance from Demba Ba this weekend in front of Wenger’s gaze and that £7m clause could be activated – certainly one to keep an eye on.

Arsenal will have a fight on their hands though, if they do chose to pursue him; with French giants, PSG expected to be the  favorite location for Ba’s next club.
