Rodallega and N'Zogbia in Arsenal Switch

Rodallega and N'Zogbia in Arsenal Switch


Wigan Athletic pair Hugo Rodallega and Charles N`Zogbia will be playing for Sundays opponents Arsenal next season after a deal has been agreed to see them make the switch once the season is over.

According to a source the deal is worth £22 million to the Latics and both players have already passed medicals at Arsenal, agreed personal terms and been shown around their new place of employment.

This is a massive blow to Wigan supporters at the end of a tough season to see their two most creative players leaving, hopefully the club is acting to replace the pair with quality and to this end Latics General Manager John Benson is in Honduras checking on several players including left sided midfield man Emilio Izaguirre, Oscar Boniek Garcia and Jonny Palacios.

The Latics have only scored 30 league goals so far this season and between them Rodallega and N`Zogbia have 14 of those with Rodallega scoring important goals in 1-0 wins against West Ham, Sunderland, Liverpool and Burnley and the 1-1 draw with Blackburn underlying his importance to the team this season.

it was inevitable anyway and 22 mil for the pair is a good deal

There are very few teams who could expect to keep players when Arsenal have shown interest. We should be glad that we had players of that quality at all for this season - and them going to a top club is a good advert for why players wanting to develop should come to us rather than Bolton, Sunderland, West Ham etc.

Arsenal fan here. Highly unlikely story this one. We have already agreed terms with Marouane Chamakh of Girondins De Bordeaux to fill a vacant striker slot so that counts out Rodallega. N'Zogbia though a good player would compete with the likes of Arshavin or Rosicky in the left of midfield. Dont think that will happen either.

this would be interesting, and i really can't put my finger on which would be better for you, the 22 mil or having the two players next season...

Do you want Silvestre as part of the deal, I will borrow him my oyster card to get part way up to Wigan.

it always happens, Valencia, cattermole, palacios, heskey, rodallega, nzog, michael brown, anytime we get any type of talent there on the next bus out of here, and we get young talent with no experience, and its the same process over again
