Even though Arsene Wenger’s position as manager of Arsenal Football Club is not under threat from the top brass at the club, it has become increasingly clear that the patience of the fans is running out. So even though the Frenchman has declared this week that he will be in charge for at least the final year of his contract, he is aware that it will be an uncomfortable year unless he gets the Gunners challenging for the Premier League title again.
In fact I think that the fans would not he half as angry now if the team was doing the same but the boss had actually spent some decent money on transfers in the summer and winter transfer window. The players might not have settled well or we knowing our lucky they could have gone straight onto the Arsenal injury list but at least Wenger would have tried.
Surely he must realise that he cannot be so inactive again this summer and according to a Metro report that is case, as the Gunners have reportedly already agreed the personal terms with Granit Xhaka over his summer move to London from the Bundesliga and Borussia Monchengladbach.
The 23-year old midfielder is a highly rated player and will not come cheap so is this the first of a big summer of signings for Arsenal and Wenger?
