Arsenal might Swap Nicklas Bendtner for West Ham’s Matthew Upson

(This entry was originally published on Monday, January 5th, 2009)

Arsenal might go for a swap deal with London neighbor West Ham United, bringing Hammers defender Matthew Upson in exchange of their Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner. Besides Bendtner, Arsenal would also have to pay about £4.5 million to land the central defender who excelled in his position at West Ham United so far this season. The recent contrastive form of Bendtner and Upson suggests that Arsenal might be the winner of the rumored swap deal as the North London club needs to bolster their back line to remain in the title race of premier leagues as well as in Europe.

While Upson has been in an excellent form so far this season for West Ham United, Bendtner fared poorly for the Gunners. So, it seems that Wenger might be happy to get an experienced player like Upson in Arsenal back line at the expense of 20-year-old unsettled striker Bendtner who scored only 6 goals from 40 premier league appearances for Arsenal. Matthew Upson joined West Ham United in a move away from Arsenal in 2003. Upson played at Arsenal from 1997 to 2003. Upson played 51 premier league matches in West Ham United outfit with a goal to his credit. Now, Arsene Wenger may have a reunion with his former student, if the deal comes into existence.
