As the Euros has only 4 teams left, where are the Arsenal transfers? by KM
Hello dear Arsenal fans. These Euros are some kind of interesting. The way Croatia beat Spain than failed to beat Portugal, who eventually slipped passed Poland into the Semis without a single win in regular time. Of course we cannot go past Wales incredible run to the semis, with Belgium’s spectacular waste of talent and of course… Iceland beat England!
So from one Brexit to another it doesn’t look like this will affect the premier league too much as United and City continue to add quality to their sides. Ibrahimovich and Mkhitaryan are two players that we could’ve signed. This highlights one major difference between Mourinho and Arsene. One focuses on short term success built at all cost, while the other sticks to old fashioned principles that have questionable results.
We’ve so far signed Xhaka and a Japanese forward who looks like another stunt move to increase our revenue coming from the Far East. Remember Ryo Miyachi and Park? He’s 21, likely to be sent on loan and as Giroud scored two goals against Iceland it may be just enough to convince Arsene we don’t need that much striking backup.
I am worried, as I am every transfer window. City have Pep who signed Nolito and Gundogan, again two players who could’ve improved our squad and didn’t cost a fortune. If we fail to sign a striker that would be a genuine first choice candidate this is a failed window for me. Luckily the Euros haven’t provided anybody whose price would skyrocket.
What about a defender and a winger? Draxler continues to be an obvious choice for me, but I feel like we won’t risk it, because we have the Ox and Theo, whose future uncertainty has been shadowed by the Euros.
Finally I’ll finish with the fact Ozil missed two penalties and Xhaka also missed, eventually costing Switzerlands head in the tournament. Maybe we need to work on this. I remember Ozil missing a penalty vs Bayern when we had them on the backfooot, which led to a 2:0 defeat.
Character and signings! Two things we’ve lacked over the past few years.
