AT LEAST WENGER HAS NOT WASTED THE FUNDS by SS
It has been a very difficult transfer window for Arsenal fans this year. Having built on the acquisition of Ozil and Sanchez, we were expecting a top class striker to arrive this season. As usual we were connected with every top striker, whether he was available or not, and as usual all the available top strikers were signed by the other clubs under our noses and we are still chasing.
We all realize that signing a top striker is a must if we have to win the league. But with inflated prices put on these strikers, signing them has become a big issue. We have not seen an EPL club buying such a player from the overseas market this year. The likes of Dybala and Martinez have all overlooked the EPL and moved to other places.
However on this point we must also give a pat on the back to Arsene Wenger as he has at least not signed a player just for the sake of signing. Other clubs have lost millions on players that have never delivered to their true potential. Here we can look at some of the examples:

Whatever amount spent on these players was a waste. The first three were shown the door after their very first year, which makes them worst signings of the recent past.
Are we not the wise guys so far as this area is concerned? Please comment….
