Arsene Wenger had a stark warning for Arsenal and every other club in the Premier League this week, as reported by Metro, after Chelsea announced the transfer of their Brazil international midfield star Oscar to the Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG for an eye-watering £60 million.
As well as the Arsenal manager’s concern that this sort of transfer swoop of players in the Premier League from the cash sodden Chinese league will become more and more regular, I think that Arsenal fans have another big woory to consider fro the big money transfer of Oscar.
It might be bad news for Chelsea and all of us in the future, but with Oscar having started just five EPL games under Antonio Conte and with the injury list at Stamford Bridge almost non-existent, I do not think it is going to have an adverse effect on them now.
In fact they are going to0 have a nice wedgeof cash to add to their transfer budget for the January transfer window and that is likely to be bad news for the Gunners as we hope to complete a few good signings of our own and catch the current league leaders in the second half of the season.
Does it seem to you that Chelsea are getting all the luck they could wish for this season?
