I don’t think that you will find many Arsenal fans to disagree with Arsene Wenger about what he said on the subject of the summer transfer window, or at least not with the part about the sort of quality he wants to bring in to the club before the end of next season anyway.
As reported by Sky Sports, the Frenchman declared this week that he is looking at quality rather than quantity. With a strong squad and starting XI already, I can see why the boss is not desperate for wholesale signings but just a few key players to improve on what we already have.
He said, “We have a big squad – the basis is there. We do not need to buy a number of players.
“If we can get top, world-class players we will look at it, but we have a very strong squad already in number and we want to stay together and start well next season.”
So we are looking at players like Marco Reus, Cavani, Hummels and Khedira then yes? Well no, not according to the Metro report linking us with the central defender of Monaco Aymen Abdennour and the winger Nabil Fekir of Lyon.
The defender was impressive as Monaco knocked the Gunners out of Europe but he is not exactly in the same league as Hummels and the £15 million rated Fekir looks a good player as well but would either of them really be an improvement on what we have already?
