Leicester City tightened their grip on the Premier League with a win today, so with very little to excite ourselves about this term, we though we’d look ahead to the upcoming transfer window.
Unless the current Arsenal strikers like Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell go on a massive goal scoring spree over the next few weeks and months, one of the big priorities for Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer window will be to sign at least one top class forward.
Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus this summer, while the Italians are credited with an interest in Olivier Giroud.
The Spanish striker has emerged as one of the most coveted strikers in Europe since leaving Real Madrid in 2014, and has already equalled legend Alessandro Del Piero’s record of scoring in five consecutive Champions League matches for Juventus.
We are into the final quarter of the Premier League season, and having lost our place in both the FA Cup and Champions League, it is almost time to concentrate on next season’s hopes.
Our campaign looks likely to drizzle into another season of a top-four finish without a trophy, which many of the usual top clubs will not even be able to boast.
There were Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with this fantastic young forward a couple of years ago, when it became clear that he was surplus to requirements at the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Well it was not as if they were desperate to offload one of the few academy graduates to feature in the first team, but Alvaro Morata wanted regular first team football and knew that he would have to leave to guarantee it.
Arsenal fans are well used to Arsene Wenger pulling a fast one on us during a transfer window. Usually the Frenchman keeps us hoping and says he is looking for players before not making any transfers and saying that he just couldn’t find any.
Arsene Wenger’s big mistake by Lazyboy
The expectation among Arsenal fans, built to a crescendo by the Arsenal transfer rumours in the media, is that Arsene Wenger is set to announce the first big name signings of the summer transfer window tomorrow. The fact that this announcement will happily coincide with the fans’ chance to spend their money on the new Arsenal range by PUMA, is surely just a lucky happenstance.
