The Arsenal transfer rumours have not really got going properly yet, with at least two months to go before the current season ends and most of the players jet off to sunny climes to relax. But they have not stopped completely since the January window closed either, suggesting that the transfer business behind the scenes never really stops either.
This week we have the news, reported by The Mirror, that Arsene Wenger is plotting to make three big signings in his quest to turn the Gunners from Perennial also-rans into genuine Premier League title contenders. The players in question are the Southampton and France star Morgan Schneiderlin, the Chelsea and Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech and the Borussia Dortmund and Serbia defender Neven Subotic.
Would this triple transfer swoop, assuming it happens of course, be enough to propel Arsenal to champion status?
I certainly like the idea that Wenger still wants to strengthen the central defence, despite the signing of the Brazilian Gabriel from Villarreal in January and Subotic is a quality player. I just worry about his history of injury problems, but you could say the same for his club colleague Mats Hummels as well.
Schneiderlin is a no-brainer for me, a brilliant all-rounder who has proved beyond doubt that he can shine in the rough and tumble of English football as well as having the vision, composure and technical ability to run a game like Arteta.
Cech, or another world class keeper, also sounds like a solid plan to me. Look how well the very below par Man United have done this season thanks to David De Gea. The one thing missing from this transfer plan, in my opinion, is a top class striker to strengthen the front line.
Add one of those, and the club can certainly afford it, and I think you would have an Arsenal that could win. Do you agree?
