I really hope that Arsene Wenger was merely trying to throw people off the track of what Arsenal are planning to do in the transfer market, when he claimed that he did not expect much business to be done early on this summer. Because if he was serious, I think he may have misjudged the situation quite badly.
It is not the first time that Arsenal have been linked with the 22 year-old Cristian Tello from Barcelona, but this time it seems certain that the fledgling Spanish International will definitely be leaving the Catalan club this summer.
Should Arsenal try and loan Cristian Tello? by KJ
As many of you will have seen, David Ornstein (extremely reliable journalist) has just confirmed that Arsenal will not be signing Julian Draxler this January because Wenger doesn’t agree with Schalke’s evaluation. What that means for any deal in the summer, I don’t know. However, we still need depth in the attacking positions if we are to win silverware this season and one of those players linked is Cristian Tello of Barcelona.
Well we are at the business end of the January transfer window Arsenal fans. I know it has been frustrating so far, but if last summer’s window was anything to go on, we should not be all that surprised that no new players have been signed by the club yet.
If the Arsenal boss had traveled to Spain to see a number of potential transfer targets, there can only be one player who really caught his eye. Arsene Wenger was reported by Goal.com and others to be at the Copa Del Rey clash between Levante and Barcelona and the young striker Cristian Tello bagged himself a second-half hat-trick.
