Not a lot happening in the transfer market by KM
Hello everyone! Summer is coming and football is out until August. So whats there to talk about? Not a lot really, apart from a few Jose Mourinho comments of course. They always seem to come around and more often than not they have a dig at Arsenal.
It’s no secret that Petr Cech wants to play regular football and Arsenal FC does need a solid keeper. Cech even made some comments regarding his family, where his kids study and so on, which all indicates that a London is a good place for him to stay.
That doesn’t mean he’s a certain transfer, because Spurs might need someone to replace Lloris if De Gea goes and Man United snap him up. It’s all pretty much gossip but Mourinho said that he might want an exchange player. Now except for Diaby I don’t think I’d give anyone to Chelsea!
Mourinho recently stated that Wenger is a “top manager” and that we’ll be harder to beat next year. There goes a statement full of honest words. Why would you trust anything Mourinho says? Especially when it comes to Arsene. He’s just softly trying to apply pressure on us.
Anyway, in other rare news, Thomas Rosicky got his contract extended and he wasn’t too happy about it. I can understand that. Such a talent, such a poor injury record. I like the idea of keeping our senior players, but I feel that Thomas would not get more than the 5 games (maybe even less?) he got this season.
I believe Rosicky should’ve played a bigger part in turning over smaller teams instead of overplaying some players till they get an injury. I think that letting him go would’ve been a good gesture, since he won’t have too many more years to finish playing. He’s never been greedy, so I think he should give the game a final year of regular play, but at Arsenal that’s highly unlikely.
On a final note, bar a few transfer stories sucked out of the tip of the writers fingers, nothing much is happening really. Benzema, Higuain and Martinez are being rumored. Each of those will improve our striking force and I do believe that a new striker is just behind the DM, but still a keeper remains our top target.
I don’t think Arsene will splash out the cash. I expect something between 2-4 signings at the correct positions and we are ready to go with a better challenge next year!
Have a superb week.
