Ever since Jamie Vardy turned down Arsenal’s offer to come to th Emirates, the Gunners fans have been hearing thousands of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with every available striker in the world, and now it feels like we have been kicked in the teeth by Wenger as he confirms that the one rumour that was definitely true was the chase for Takuma Asano from Hiroshima.
The Japanese international himself could hardly believe that an offer had come in from Wenger and he admitted he “was stunned”. Well not as much as us Arsenal fans!
This is what Wenger was reported as saying today. He said: “Takuma is a talented young striker and very much one for the future.
“He has had an impressive start to his career in Japan and we look forward to him developing over the next couple of years.”
I guess our big hope that Wenger means it when he says he is one for the future, (like Miyaichi, Inamoto and Park Chu Young I’m guessing), and he is STILL looking for that elusive top striker to start for the first team next season.
My big problem is that Wenger said he would only buy two or three players in one transfer window. And we already have two…..
