As if the summer transfer window had not already been bad enough for Arsenal fans, with Arsene Wenger seemingly unaware that there was any need for him to add any good players to the Arsenal squad, while just about every other club in the Premier League was doing good business.
They seemed especially true of the big clubs looking to win the EPL title this season, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City all spending well over £100 million on players. The only thing the Arsenal fans had left to hope for was that most of their business was done and that Wenger had a few deadline day signings up his sleeve.
So it was with dismay that I read the Metro report which gave us even more bad news on the transfer front. They are saying that it is not Arsenal but Chelsea that are the club set to finalise the transfer of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City, with earlier reports telling us he had been released from the Algerian national team’s training and was heading to London.
Can anything else possibly go wrong for us long suffering Arsenal fans? Actually do not answer that because the answer is yes and with the way things are going they probably will.
