We have now had at least four bits of good news already this summer, the arrival of the classy Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer and of course the club record signing of the prolific striker Alexandre Lacazette. Add to that the 100% confirmation that Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also staying with the club next season. We could add to that Sanogoals leaving, and maybe even Mesut Ozil staying as well, although that is yet to be confirmed.
But we could still be in for yet another bit of good news to improve us even further, as Arsene wenger has made it clear that the Gunners are continuing their search for top class players. He said on Arsenal.com earlier: “There are two ways to strengthen the squad – the first is to analyse where we have not done so well and where we can improve together, and the other way is to bring in players from outside,”
“We are still open to strengthening our team with players coming from outside.
“We are very active on the transfer market and have already realised two incomings. We have to keep a balance as well, that you don’t destabilise the team too much by bringing in too many players.
“But we are still active on the transfer market so let’s see what kind of opportunities we can find.”
This is easily building into being the best-ever transfer window for Arsenal fans, and at least us Gooners can actually believe that Wenger is trying his hardest to make us back into title winning material. It could be Lemar, or Mahrez, or both! Or maybe someone completely different that we haven’t considered ourselves. Whoever they are, I am now looking forward confidently to the beginning of the season for a change!
