Arsenal fans could be forgiven for hoping that our England international striker Danny Welbeck suffers a setback on his road to recovery from the injury that has kept him out of action since the latter stages of last season. Because if that is what it takes to get Arsene Wenger to splash the cash in the January transfer window then so be it.
I assume that there are quite a few Arsenal fans out there, mostly those of the WOB variety, that are pretty gutted with the news that Liverpool FC have announced the German coach Jurgen Klopp has signed a three year deal to take over from the sacked Brendan Rodgers as the manager of the Anfield club.
Arsenal do not play again for nearly two weeks due to the international break, but after that great performance and result against Manchester United yesterday, at least it will be a happy and optimistic couple of weeks. Hopefully none of our players will pick up an injury while on international duty and then we will want to carry on where we left off.
There are very few pundits around, including Thierry Henry, who haven’t told Arsene Wenger that Arsenal need to buy a Striker, a DM and a goalkeeper (only Cech of course) to give the Gunners a secure spine for next season’s attack on the Premier League title. It is now all-but-certain that Petr Cech has fulfilled the Number One role, but now Wenger needs to move on to his other targets.
According to many Arsenal transfer rumours over the last couple of years, Arsene Wenger has been very keen on completing the signing of the Germany international forward Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund. But this year the Frenchman´s hopes of finally getting his long term targets seemed to have suffered a terminal blow.
