Arsene Wenger spoke the other day about how he is ready and willing to spend big money in the transfer market because Arsenal are now out of the financial restraints of building the new state of the art Emirates Stadium. The manager has proved that he is willing to spend big on offensive players like Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez but now that Arsenal fans want to see that carry on into the defence and the central midfield areas of the squad.
The Frenchman also says that he will only spend if the right players are available and according to a report in The Mirror today, one of the best centre backs in the world could be available. It would take a lot of money to persuade the German club Borussia Dortmund to part with Mats Hummels, but it does now seem that the 26-year old would be keen on a transfer.
Hummels let his frustration with his current club show after they lost again at the weekend against one of the few clubs below them Werder Bremen. That meant that Bremen went above them and left Dortmund level on points at the bottom of the Bundesliga with Freiburg.
Hummels said, “It’s pretty astonishing that we are so pathetic.”
With just one win from their last eight games, Dortmund now have over a month to ponder their sorry situation as the winter break means they do not play again until January 31st, which just happens to be transfer deadline day. So Arsene, you want top quality and availability do you?
Surely there has never been a better time to go for Hummels and getting that transfer completed would prove your doubters wrong and get the Arsenal fans behind you in a big way. Could this stunning move really happen Gooners?
