Wenger’s transfer dithering could cost Arsenal dearly by DN
Here we are again Arsenal fans, with seemingly everyone in the world of football except Arsene Wenger thinking that the Gunners are teetering on the brink of a disaster and needing some quick action in the January transfer window in order to avert it.
We have the tough test of Stoke City on Sunday and then the even tougher trip to Man City the following week and there is still no sign of any new players coming in to bolster our injury stretched side. Arsenal are literally one injury away from a real nightmare and if we happen to lose either Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny or Calum Chambers, that nightmare will be upon us.
I cannot really understand why Wenger has not made a move already. He has had plenty of time to prepare for this window and he was well aware of the situation. We have already paid dearly this season for Wenger’s decision, or failure, not to sign another defender in the summer and the ligament problem afflicting Koscielny could come back at any time.
I don’t agree with what the Arsenal keeper Szczesny’s dad had to say, or at least his decision to speak out, but he does have a point and I do feel a bit sorry for the Polish international, because he has been exposed over and over again. Come on Wenger, sort it out will you…
