It never gets any easier for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger does it? The Frenchman is always under pressure to make some top class signings when there is a transfer window open and even when there was very little money in the kitty for him to spend on players, people would slaughter him for the transfers that did not really work out.
And when Wenger has managed to get hold of a really top class player, whether through transfer dealings or from the Arsenal academy, then we get the big clubs in England and around Europe circling like vultures. Wenger will be under pressure to add to the Arsenal squad next month, of course, but he could be even harder pressed to hold on to one of our superstars if the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are correct.
Because Talksport are reporting news from Spain that the Spanish giants and biggest earning club in the world, Real Madrid, have identified Alexis Sanchez as a priority target, possibly as a long term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo. The report claims they may be preparing a massive bid for the Chilean next month.
And if Wenger manages to see that transfer bid off, he could be faced with yet another in the summer, this time from EPL rivals Man City. The rumour reported by Goal.com is that his former boss at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola, will make the Chilean his first transfer target if he takes over from Manuel Pellegrini after this season.
Will the Gunners be able to hold on to our star striker?
