Barcelona Targeting Arsenal Striker Emmanuel Adebayor

(This entry was originally published on Saturday, January 3rd, 2009)

It seems that Barcelona officials are becoming fan of Arsenal club. Two years ago, they broke the heart of many Arsenal supports by signing Thierry Henry with a huge amount of money. They are also after Cesc Fabregas and it seems that it is a matter of time and million dollars before Fabregas joins Barcelona. Now, they are seriously targeting Emmanuel Adebayor. Adebayor is the best striker of Togo national football team and he is also the top striker of Arsenal. Last season, he was the only striker in EPL who could put up any kind of competition against the world no. 1 player Cristiano Ronaldo. He is also doing well this season too. I do not feel that Adebayor should follow Henry’s footstep and leave London. He is still very young and he has a lot of football to give. In Arsenal, he can be always sure that Arsene Wenger will put him in the first eleven as long as he can deliver performance. On the other hand, he will be under tough competition at Barcelona as there are players like Eto’o, Messi and Henry. So, he will also struggle to be in the first eleven and if he loses his time and youth then after two or three years, he may have a lot of money but he will feel that he has wasted his best time by leaving London. Here, I would also like to remind the readers about Denis Bergkamp and Emmanuel Petit. Emmanuel Pettit was a French midfielder and he was a very influential player in Arsenal a decade ago. At the same time, there was Bergkamp who hung on at the London club and he became a legend. On the other hand, Emmanuel Petit left too early and lost his form in other clubs and in the end became a failure. The same thing goes for Nicholas Anelka who was considered to be the next Ronaldo or Ronaldinho, but he did the same mistake by leaving Arsenal too early and he is still struggling to get his best form.
