I am not sure if the phrase ‘looking forward to’ ever really applies to Arsenal fans when it comes to any transfer window, be it summer or winter or whether we are in desperate need of new players or not, because they are almost always a let down.
Remember that January when we badly needed a striker and then picked up a key injury or two but Arsene Wenger signed just one player, the aging Swede Kim Kallstrom, who it turned out was actually carrying an injury of his won? That window was a real doozy for us Gooners and this summer was not much better.
Even though I am happy with the signing of Lacazette and Kolasinac, the fact the club made a profit when we were expecting a big splurge was incredibly frustrating so we can only hope that Wenger and the board will be more proactive next time and perhaps they already are, with Talksport reporting that we are one of the three clubs planning to swoop for the PSG and France midfield star Adrien Rabiot.
The others are our north London rivals Tottenham and the Italian Serie A club Internazionale from Milan. The 21-year old is a real talent and I think would add quality and options to our central midfield, but if PSG are willing to sell, will Arsenal be able to win this three way transfer tussle?
