One of the criticisms that some Arsenal fans have had of Arsene Wenger for years is that the Frenchman did not appear to have a plan B, tactically speaking, or that he was just too set on Arsenal playing the fluent and entertaining sort of passing game that we have become famous for under the prof.
The boss has proved this theory wrong over the last couple of years with some hard fought victories against the likes of Man City and Bayern Munich thanks to dogged defending and quick counter attacks. Now I am starting to wonder whether Wenger has a plan B in his transfer plans.
It was weeks ago when Arsenal activated the release clause in the Leicester City contract of Jamie Vardy and once the striker jetted off with the England squad (what a waste of time that turned out to be) it was apparent that he might not sign for us. Wenger himself said as much, but what has he done about it?
There are plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with various forwards but nothing even remotely concrete. Meanwhile we keep hearing transfer news like the Sky Sports report confirming that Liverpool have signed Sadio Mane or that Crystal Palace have offered over £30 million for Michy Batshuayi.
Metro are telling us that Man United have a greed a fee with Borussia Dortmund for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and the word is that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is going to Old Trafford as well.
Are you guys as worried as me about all these attacking players being snapped up by our Premier League rivals while Arsene seems to be content to watch and commentate on Euro 2016?
