'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Arsenal want Jarvo?

Do Arsenal really want to sign Wolves winger Matt Jarvis to replace Samir Nasri?

This is the latest transfer rumour to be winging it's way around the internet.

I'm not sure where it originated but it has now reached the E&S Transfer rumour pages.

Jarvis of course will be used to speculation linking him with a move away from Molineux and the only time speculation like this can be taken seriously is once a bid has been submitted.

We might be keen not to sell, Moxey and McCarthy are hardly going say anything but in the press, but the unfortunate factor in football these days is, everyone has a price.

So to open up the debate, just how much would that price be?

i have all ready stated if Downing and Young our worth 17-18m then so is Jarvo he is only one out of the three who can play both wings and cross the ball with both feet Young plays on the left and has to cut in side to cross with his right foot Downing is the same if on the right so if their worth that how much Jarvo who can play with both feet.
kiawolves
I agree in principle, but both those players have that bit more experience than Jarvo with much more caps for England which bumps their price tag up. While we might value him at that amount, I can't see Arsenal stumping up more than 10m.
akela
only because Arsenal try to get everyone on the cheap and overprice there players example is bendtner worth 12m dont think so
kiawolves
In response to Akela's exhortation to get involved (see the fluffy Wolf thread), I am naturally keen to play a part in the discussion, even though my views on this subject are well known. At least, my comments on Jarvis in the past have always stimulated a (generally) healthy debate. I agree with the points made by kiawolves and Akela and, with their comments in mind, I would expect to receive more than 10m. for Jarvis. As you all know, I would sell the winger, if the price were right, because our priority remains a CB and a LB of proven PL ability. On the other hand, I would not sell Doyle, even for crazy money.

They might have more experience Akkela but does Henderson and Carroll ? , i think 15-20 for a young talented winger who has represented England is only fair given the current market

If they came in with 10 million I would to them where to stick it. I agree with the above- he has already stepped up to the international stage whilst not having earned as many caps yet. In the meantime Oddy mentions Henderson and Carroll which helps put things in perspective. Considering the way prices are going I think he is worth closer to 20 than he is to 10. I think a sale would be shooting ourselves in the foot. I can't see the club doing it, and as things stand I can't actually see the player asking to go at this point. If anything another good season under his belt, still under a long contract, then perhaps next season but only if the player wished to leave. I would hope by then we have generated greater funds from another season of Premiership football to look forward to, a bigger stadium that continues growing... it all brings us back to the start which Banks highlights, our need to sign defenders. We sign the players we need now we really can kick on next season and see the club continue to grow. As we stand I see another tough season ahead of us and as stated before, our better players are not going to stick around for one relegation battle after another.

News items: (1) Mendez-Laing turns down a move to Peterborough and (2) Arsenal consider signing Jarvis. Any connection?
Southbank60
I have to be honest and say that IMHO I don't think Jarvo will make it big in the Prem with Wolves. He is too inconsistant. Maybe a move to a bigger club with Much better players would help him evolve. I like him but if the price was right I would sell him and use the money to get a new CB or LB;. Both if the price was high enough. I would hate us to become a selling club but at the same time business is business and lets face it....good business makes sense. We have Kights and Hunt plus players that can play that role so losing one at the right price to build the defence would be my preferred option.
Rustmonkey
I would swap Jarvis for Dann plus a good left back.
Crete Wolf
Crete Wolves idont think do we should be selling any of are top players we have the money in my opinion but MM THINKS the squad is good enough. We should be buying top quality players to improve the team no more about selling players unless their not required HOFF vOKES kEOUGH GET RID NOW.
kiawolves
Sorry Kia but I disagree with the whole.....Mick is happy with the squad thing. The fact is that the manager does not hold the purse strings. I am sure that given a blank cheque that he would be getting some of these players in (who wouldn't?). Mick has to work within the budget he is given by the board. That budget includes wages aswell as transfer fee's. I am tired of people blaming MM for not getting players in. You only have to look down the road at Brum to see what happens if you put all your chickens in one basket. As much as I would like to see some more signings, the fact is that the Board are doing it the right way. Slowly slowly catchy monkey. Jez is a businessman....his remit is to run the Business as efficiently as possible whilst still allowing the club to progress. Morgan is investing in a long term Business plan. Wolves are in a far better position financially than the vast majority of other top clubs around the country. Too many clubs have come close to extinction over the last few years. I am sure that true Wolves fans would welcome the fact that our Club is in safe hands and not gambling our future away. I for one support the new ethos being shown by the board. It may be too slow a progress for some fans but progress it is. May the 3 M's continue to put this club firmly back where it belongs. A new Ground, New training facilities, New players......life ain't all that bad really. Keep the faith and let the good times roll.
Rustmonkey
That's all very well but unless we have a good enough team, one that doesn't leak goals at the back, the rest is largely wasted trimming. At least, being able to boast of the best stadium and training ground in the Championship would be something to set against the loss of the PL revenue and the disappearance of our best players. The signing of RJ is a start but it's not enough. If we have to sell to acquire the defenders, I'm with Crete Wolf ... but, like kiawolves, I think we could buy them with money in hand. (N.B. This comment is based on a rubber stamp already used several times before).
Southbank60
I'm not convinced that all the signings are over.......I do think that the board are being quiet so as not to raise too much attention to possible targets. How many times have we been linked with players only to have them snatched from us. Leicester are playing a dangerous game. one that failed Leeds, Crystal Palace amongst others. Let the Board do their business then on 31 Aug, then they can be judged. Keep the Faith
Rustmonkey
If we found out we were spending thirty million tomorrow and paying absurd wages I think we would all be concerned; what we are asking for is a moderate outlay and right now the books are not balancing. An outlay of 7 or 8 million does not line up with the income of the last two seasons. At the very least I expected us to match what we spent last season- and even then I argued asto how much we could improve. O'Hara and Johnson are of the quality we need- there are still glaring holes in our team and if we know that then it won't take sides long to figure us out. We are capable of a lot but we took a large chunk of our points from the wins over Man.City/Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool and who thinks we are going to be able to repeat that this season. Our losee ratio was fairly shocking and it is unfair on the present crop to think we shall transform ourselves from a side that lost more than it won to a good/very good side. I am not convinced the signings are over either but a lot of that is down to hope rather than anything else.
