Even if the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, and Arsenal are the club in pole position to secure the transfer of the Real Madrid aand Spain international star Isco in the summer, there would still be a few things that could stop the stuning transfer to north London going ahead.
The biggest gripe of Arsenal fans that go to the Emirates for every game for the last god-knows-how-many years is that they have been paying the highest prices in the world, but have not been rewarded by the ambition of the club on the pitch. The taunts about Arsene Wenger’s sole ambition being to make the Top Four to generate more money for the club rather than actually trying to go the whole hog and win the League.
After the Gunners pulled off the brilliant last gasp result that we needed to stay in the Champions League, for at least two more games anyway, I can understand why Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players were very upbeat and also full of confidence for the latter stages of the competition.
You could hardly have called Arsenal first two group matches being lucky, with the unbelievable defeats to Zagreb and Olympiakos, and Arsene Wenger acknowledged that things didn’t go our way, but also opined that his team usually qualified anyway.
With a growing injury list greatly reducing the Arsenal squad options available to the manager and with a crucial and busy run of fixtures just around the corner, Arsene Wenger could find himself with a lot of work to do when the transfer window kicks off next month.
Ask the average Arsenal fan, even before we lost three more of the first team player to injury at the weekend, and they will tell you that Arsene Wenger is still being a bit of a lightweight when it comes to the transfer market. But as the injury list grows it is expected that the prof could well put that right when the winter window opens next month.
It was by far the biggest and longest running Arsenal transfer rumour of the summer, one Arsene Wenger had completed the surprise signing of the brilliant Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech from our direct Premier League rivals Chelsea (well we thought they were going to be rivals lol).
Arsenal fans will be keeping a very close eye on the injury situation at the club in the run up to the festive period, because that and the form of the individual Arsenal players and the team as a whole will probably determine whether January will see any transfer action from Arsene Wenger.
