I am finding it hard to summon up much positive thought or optimism about the way the transfer deadline day will pan out today for the Gunners, with most of the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds seemingly about which players will be leaving the Emirates instead of which players will be signed by the under fire Arsene Wenger.
But a lot can happen in the next few hours and, let’s face it Gooners, it really needs to if the boss and the players are to get back to Premier League action next weekend with anything but a dark cloud hanging over their heads. Wenger knows this, as do the Arsenal board, and so I am fairly sure they will be trying to wrap up a few deals today.
In an ideal world today would see Arsenal see off the transfer interest of Man City in our Chilean international striker and also sign at least one more attacking star like Mahrez, Lemar or Julian Draxler. The Gunners also need to sign a top quality defender in my opinion and a powerful central midfielder to balance out the undoubtedly talented but often lightweight technical players we have like Ozil and Ramsey.
Arsenal have the money and despite our recent troubles we are still a big club that most players would at least consider, so can Wenger deliver the huge transfer deadline day that Arsenal fans are demanding?
