The German international Mats Hummels has been the subject of numerous Arsenal transfer rumours over the years, and it now looks like we will have to buy him this summer or give up completely. The Dortmund centre-back is now 27 and as Wenger believes that defende’rs careers last much longer than attackers, he is probably the perfect age to come to the Emirates.
We travel to Sunderland this weekend in what could be an all-important match in both the relegation battle and the chase for CL football, but we thought we’d take a breather from the build up.
How to best use Arsenals transfer budget – don’t buy a striker! By: Supertuur
Reading the newspapers there are lots of strikers being linked with Arsenal. Arsenal reportedly have £50 million to spend on transfers, and if we include some money from player sales this could be £70-75 million. Now how do Arsenal spend this money to maximum effect, here is my case.
It looks like Arsene Wenger has already taken an early blow to his Arsenal transfer plans for the end of the season, if you believe what you read in the latest Arsenal transfer rumours that is. And what is even worse than the reports that the Frenchman is set to miss out on two top class players from the Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, is that both Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan look set to sign for our Premier League rivals Manchester United instead.
It might be worth all the Arsenal fans out there becoming honorary supporters of Liverpool or Southampton until the end of the season, as those are the only two clubs that have a realistic chance of beating Manchester United to one of the top four places in the Premier League.
According to various Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger could be set to add to the misery being suffered by the fans of the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund this season by swooping in the January transfer window for two of the club’s star players.
Maybe the Arsenal board should think about appointing some new staff to help Arsene Wenger behind the scenes at the club. It has been talked about before as the Frenchman has struggled to sign the right players to really push us on, although a lot of the problems in the last few years could be blamed directly on the lack of funds available to Wenger in the transfer market.
It is coming Arsenal fans, and I am not talking about Christmas day, Hannukah or the winter solstice for you pagans out there. The event that is on some of our minds is the January transfer window. Last season it was a disaster, with an injured Kim Kallstrom on loan when we needed so much more.
