Last summer Arsenal fans were over the moon when Arsene Wenger quickly announced the arrival of Petr Cech as soon as the old season ended, but were then forced to endure a summer of frustration as Le Prof spoonfed ushopes and wishes but ended up in September without even one new outfield player to give us hope for the new season.
But this summer WILL be different, as Wenger has openly said that there will be at least one or two new arrivals, although I am sure most fans believe that we need more than that. Wenger was quoted as saying: “We’ve already bought one player – Granit Xhaka – from Monchengladbach, because we’ve lost three players.
“We’ve lost [Mikel] Arteta, we’ve lost [Tomas] Rosicky and [Mathieu] Flamini.
“So we’ve bought one midfielder and we’re still in the market to buy one or two more players.
“But it is not easy. It is not just buying.
“We also have to keep a good balance. If you buy too many players you destabilise your team. So three is the maximum.”
Well that is all fine and dandy as long as the three (not two) are top quality players in the positions we need. As in a super striker and a top class winger or centre-back. Any others I am sure that Wenger will fill from the academy.
But the one first and foremost neccessity is a striker. Go get Aubemayeng, Wenger!
