Wenger wants Ike Uche's number  

Wednesday, 3 June 2009

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he may be asking for Ike Uche's number after watching the Nigeria striker do a head-turning number on the French defence as the Super Eagles ran out with a surprise 1-0 win over Les Blues on Tuesday night.
Wenger was a co-commentator on the live game for French TV TF1 and was hugely impressed by the Getafe man's showing at the Stade Geoffrey-Guichard.

"What’s his name again? Ikechukwu Uche. I should ask for his phone number," Wenger said on TF1.

Wenger continually praised the 25-year-old Uche for the duration of the game and Ike's elder brother Kalu has told Setanta that his sibling would not be averse to a Premier League switch.

"He has been doing very well for Getafe, helping them to avoid the drop in the Primera Liga, and he has also been quite impressive with Nigeria," Kalu Uche told setanta.com.

"I had no idea that Arsene Wenger had said lovely things about him. It makes me feel proud.

"Of course moving to England would attract him, especially if we are speaking about such a top club as Arsenal."
