The problem for Arsenal in signing players is not money, according to Arsene Wenger, but finding the right player. We have heard the Frenchman say plenty of times before that he is working hard to find a striker but there are just none available and just recently he outlined the boxes that need to be ticked in order to make a transfer worthwhile.
It is hard to accept, though, when every other club in the world seems to be able to find players. We have already been linked with a munber of strikers, only to see them sign for someone else and it is getting very frustrating for Arsenal fans with now less than a week before the EPL season starts and no strikers in sight.
Today another decent looking option has passed us by, with the Daily Mail reporting that PSG have just signed the young Spanish forward Jese Rodriguez from Real Madrid for a little over £20 million.
Is he not good enough for the Gunners? Is £20 million too much in today’s hugely inflated transfer market. Jese is young so the resale value is there and I am struggling to understand just why Wenger is unable to find us a striker, aren’t you?
