Rovers Winger Linked With Arsenal

Rovers Winger Linked With Arsenal

Blackburn Rovers winger Morten Gamst Pedersen is often linked with other clubs, but he is now the apparent GENUINE interest of a top four club...Arsenal?

The left-winger, who in tandem with his right sided colleague David Bentley offers Rovers arguably the best supply from either flank of any team in this country is understood to be attracting the attentions of Arsenal (according to the People newspaper anyway) with them putting in a £7 million bid? Which was rejected!!!

(If this is true?!?!) Rovers will fight hammer and tong to keep hold of the Norwegian International, as he is not only a HUGE crowd favourite (as he is of Mark Hughes) but is ALSO key to the future success of Rovers. However, if Arsene Wenger's interest is as strong as it is being made out then Rovers could find it tough going to keep him at Ewood Park?

Although Hughes will be VERY, VERY reluctant to let him go the report went on to claim that should the Gunners offer striker Nicklas Bendtner and midfielder Mathieu Flamani AS WELL as cash for MGP then this could see business done?

He is often linked with others isn't he, but we have not as yet seen any genuine interest from the top four (the ONLY clubs he should ever think of leaving for!!!) until now, if this is genuine?!?!
But how true is this??? IF (the big if) it is then Arsenal are a massive club aren't they, so it could be hard for MGP to say no (providing Rovers get what they see fit!!!)

Im gonna come out and make a prediction. Hughesy to sign Flamini on a loan deal with option to make permanent. I mentioned flamini as one of the players i would like as a rover a fair while back, and hughesy always has these try before we buy deals. Payed of with bentley

I would love to see MGP come to us.Tho I can pretty much guarantee that you won't get Bendtner. Arsene could've sold him to one of a number of clubs at the end of last season.

Could'nt see Wenger handing over Bendtner this season. Flamini on the other hand i could see being used as a bargaining chip. Really rate MGP and would love to see him playing for Arsenal Wont believe this rumor until i see it somewhere more credable then "The People" though.

Bendter is has all the potential in the world but at the min is of no use to Rovers, Flamini would not break into the team at the min either and £7m is a joke for Gamst. We def could get on without him with Peter, not as good a crosser but will take players on more and Treacy from the reserves getting rave reviews as well. Would like to see Pederson stay dont get me wrong but its not as if he would be the most missed player in the Rovers squad

I can't see much substance in this largely due to Bendtnar being linked in there. I loved Bendtnar here but can't see that happening plus £7m is an insult! He won't be going anywhere.
