What is turning out to be the longest running saga of the summer so far, Arsenal fans are beginning to feel sick of hearing about our potential interest in Álvaro Morata. It’s got to the stage where we have to question if Arsenal are really interested at all, but given that Arsene Wenger’s options are limited, I think he will definitely be on the watch list.
So the search for Arsenal’s new striker is still wide open, but with Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata seemingly out of the running, could it be that Arsene Wenger has now set his sights on Mauricio Icardi?
There is an interesting bit of news from Darren Lewis in today’s Mirror saying that Arsenal had every intention of selling Olivier Giroud at the end of last season, but have now changed their minds.
The Mirror said: Arsenal have rejected a string of enquiries for Olivier Giroud .
You probably will not have heard of young Real Madrid star Sergio Diaz, however he has openly come out to the media to call out Arsene Wenger into buying him.
Arsenal signed Kelechi Nwakali this summer, but he is set to be set out on loan for the upcoming season.
The Nigerian Under-20 midfielder is yet to join up with his new squad, due to be on international duty, as he looks to help his side to qualify for the upcoming U20 AFCON tournament.
Is Debuchy set to leave Arsenal?
A few years back when Arsenal lost Bacary Sagna to Manchester City on a free transfer, many expected the worst. Sagna was one of our most consistent and long serving players at the club and losing him just didn’t seem right. Arsenal were linked with then Newcastle right back Mathieu Debuchy and many fans felt satisfied we were getting a decent replacement.
The second signing of the summer by Arsene Wenger has not exactly set pulses racing among the Arsenal fanbase and that is hardly surprising as not many of us had even heard about the young Japanese international forward Takuma Asano until last week.
Arsenal fans had hoped for a summer full of experienced stars joining the club, in an attempt to boost our title chances. However once again whilst all our rivals spend to strengthen, Arsenal have largely waited in the wings.
