\it is being reported that the powers that be behind the scenes at Arsenal FC have been listening to the complaints from a growing number of Arsenal fans and have begun to agree with the increasingly angry calls for Arsene Wenger to start spending the same sort of money as the other big clubs in the Premier League and Europe.
Striker or bust for Arsenal!! by JH
One of very few things Arsenal fans can agree on is that we need a world class striker, following the days of Wright, Henry, Van Persie, Giroud simply just doesn’t cut it. I believe a world class striker would have scored at least two vs Liverpool. Giroud managed none….
I am going to assume, perhaps foolishly, that Arsene Wenger is not just sitting on his hands with regards to adding to the Arsenal squad in this summer transfer window. I like the fact that he has confidence in the players available to him but surely the Frenchman must see that another quality player or two would significantly increase our chances of winning the Premier League title next May.
Arsenal Con Job by DS
There have been some ridiculous things said about Gonzalo Higuain, one of the strikers that has been the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours this summer, by the president of his Serie A club Napoli. Aurelio De Laurentiis does not seem to be able to help himself either, as he is in the papers again this week saying that he will not allow Higuain to leave for any less than his wild valuation of something like £65 million.
The striker situation at Arsenal has already been the matter of quite a bit of debate, for us fans and for those paid to talk about football and the Premier League. The problem is certainly not of the numerical variety, because even if Joel Campbell joins Lukas Podolski out the Emirates exit door, we would still have plenty of options.
One of the biggest things that Arsenal fans learned from the Copa America final last night, when Chile took Argentina to extra time and then a penalty shoot out that they won, was how cool our striker Alexis Sanchez is under pressure.
Obviously most of the Arsenal transfer rumours this morning are talking about Arturo Vidal’s imminent arrival at the club, with many publications saying that it is a done deal. Now that Morgan Schneiderlin is going to Man United it is looking more likely that Vidal is heading our way.
