Arsenal to Let Kolo Toure Leave, If Matthew Upson Joins Arsenal?

(This entry was originally published on Wednesday, January 7th, 2009)

It seems Kolo Toure’s future at Arsenal now depends on the Gunners’ success in their bid to sign former Arsenal defender Matthew Upson from West Ham United. In the wake of a reported fall out between Toure and fellow central defender William Gallas, it is believed that Toure now wants to leave Emirates and Manchester United has already made a bid worth £8 million for the Ivory Coast international, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not want to let one of his best defenders go before bringing in someone of same quality. No doubt, Matthew Upson fits the bill to the fullest, but West Ham United has showed no interest to sell their biggest asset.

However, if Arsenal can offer in the region of £10 million, then West Ham might consider it seriously as the Hammers are running short of money at this moment. Meanwhile, Manchester City might also be ready to pay an amount around £10 million to sing Kolo Toure. So, the equation is that if Arsenal gets the green light from West Ham United for Upson, then so would Manchester City from Arsenal for Toure. Well, it is still a report which neither of the clubs confirmed officially. So, you can take it as another rumor out there in the busy January transfer window.
