I am still struggling to understand why it has taken so long for Arsene Wenger to trim the numbers in the current Arsenal squad. The Frenchman has had all summer to offload at least some of the fringe players out on loan or to get rid of the dead wood altogether, and there have been plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours reporting other clubs bering interested in players like Gibbs, Wilshere and many more.
So when Wenger suggested that any transfers into the club, that we have all been waiting expectantly for over the last weeks and months, are on hold because of the squad size I for one was left scratching my head. But having spoken about the problem perhaps Wenger is finally determined to sort it out and according to a report by the Daily Mail our English right back Carl Jenkinson is set to be the next player to make way.
The reports claims that Jenks, a lifelong Arsenal fan who appears to have failed to nail down a playing career in north London, is going to play for Birmingham City in the Championship and although it is only a loan deal it does make room in the squad for another player.
With Gabriel having signed for Valencia last week does this latest news mean that the boss can get busy with transfers in again? If so which players or positions would you like it to be?
