Many Arsenal fans on this website are becoming more and more frustrated with the lack of transfer activity from the club, especially as we are only two weeks away from the new season’s opening game.
Many of us have voiced concerns that Granit Xhaka will be our only big money signing of the summer,but yet again Arsene Wenger has spoken out to assure us all that he is still looking for that elusive striker to cover for Danny Welbeck’s injury.
After last night’s win over the All-Stars, Wenger said: “I have, at the moment, not too many attacking options of experienced players,”
“Let’s not forget that we still have a few players at home and a few players who didn’t play today like [Santi Cazorla]. And of course we have [Mesut Ozil] and [Aaron Ramsey] at home. And [Olivier Giroud] is not here.
“So we have options, but we still look outside to find one more.”
So we are going to have to take it on trust that Wenger still has his scouts and negotiators out trying to sign the striker we need. Wenger also clearly stated that he also intends to buy an experienced centre-back to cover for the ageing and injured Per Mertesacker, so can we all stop with the gloom and doom until the transfer window actually shuts?
