With the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott having been below par for a good few games I was not surprised to see Arsene Wenger leave him out of the Arsenal starting line up for the must win Premier League game away to Bournemouth on Sunday.
I don’t know about the rest of you Arsenal fans, but I am still scratching my head trying to figure out just what the hell Arsene Wenger was thinking by only completing the one bargain basement transfer deal on the January window, despite the club being sat on a mountain of cash and having our best chance of the Premier League title in a decade put at risk by losing a number of key players to injury.
There were extensive Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners to Sporting Lisbon’s brilliant midfielder William Carvalho in the summer before he was cruelly injured playing for Portugal in the U21 World Cup.
I might be rushing ahead a bit here and worrying over nothing, but the young Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin has already been the subject of quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours linking him with a move back to his boyhood club, even though Bellerin has always said that he is happy where he is, for now at least.
Even if the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, and Arsenal are the club in pole position to secure the transfer of the Real Madrid aand Spain international star Isco in the summer, there would still be a few things that could stop the stuning transfer to north London going ahead.
