Arsenal Message Board
I have lobbied for him earlier this year, but with Robben set to leave Bayern and perhpas on the old side for the usual suspects (City, Chelsea etc) I think he would be a great addition to our squad, a real wide player who masters the position well. He also seems to have put the worst of his injury problems behind him.
Bayern are going to be a force for several years, impressive season.

I agree, Robben 'would be a great addition to our squad'.
Having said that, Arsenal can't afford his wage demand, or to rephrase, our current wage structure which is predominantly based on an equality won't be broken to accommodate Robben's wage demand. He's currently on a tidy sums with Bayern and one of the highest earners in their squad.
Most likely, he would end up at Galatasaray (who can afford him) with his old mates Sneijder and The Drog. Just can't see it happening at Arsenal but would be a great signing for us certainly.
