A large number of Arsenal fans are of the belief that the Gunners will never get the glory days back while Arsene Wenger is still the manager, while many others feel that the Frenchman could propel Arsenal back to the top of English football if he was willing and able to match the really big hitters in the transfer market.
Well we might soon get a chance to find out, as The Mirror is reporting that Arsenal are trying to complete a major swoop on the Spanish La Liga giants FC Barcelona. It is not a player we are going for though, but their sporting director Raul Sanllehi.
Our Premier League rivals Man City are said to be interested as well and they already have some former Barca top brass in their hierarchy, but if Arsenal, who have apparently already started talking with Sanllehi about him coming to north London, the idea is that he will help to freshen up the transfer policy at Arsenal.
We could certainly do with that after the disappointment of the summer window, and a lot of us think that Wenger has needed help on this front for years, perhaps even since the departure of David Dein all those years ago. Could this one transfer swoop on Barcelona set Arsenal back on the road to glory?
