Arsenal were supposed to be `very active` on transfer deadline day today, but the silence from the Emirates is deafening and us fans are starting to worry that the deadline will come without Arsene Wenger adding a single extra player to the Arsenal squad.
In fact, Wenger seems to have knocked off for the day according to a Talksport report that claims the Frenchman has flown to Italy to be the referee in a charity football match. Really I am not making this up, although I hope that somebody is.
If you were planning to be very active on a certain day, would you schedule a trip to Italy for halfway through that day? Maybe Wenger only had one target for today, with the Evening Standard reporting this morning that the Gunners were trying everything to bring the Colombian striker Radamel Falcao to the Emirates.
And now that we have lost out on that deal to Man United, which I am still finding hard to believe, then Wenger really does not have any more targets available that he thinks could improve on the players we already have at the club. If that is true, then the scouting system needs an overhaul.
Are we really going to finish a third transfer window without signing a striker or defensive midfielder?
