There has been much discussion already about whether Arsenal already have a good enough squad to challenge Chelsea for the title next season, and it has even been suggested that Arsene Wenger hardly needs to spend anything this summer except on a magic potion to keep everyone fit!
But now Le Prof has given his biggest hint yet that the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with world class players could in fact be true. Le Prof was quoted as saying on ESPN: “We are ready to spend the money for players who strengthen our team,”
“There is a difference in that and just spending money. If I ask you who has spent the most money this last season and if I give you last season, and the season before, it is never the teams who have won the championship.
“You have to be careful sometimes not to rate the players only by the amount of money they cost but just look at their performances.
“We are in a position where we just want a player with an exceptional quality in any area that can strengthen us.
“The depth of squad is important and any world class player in any position can help us achieve what we want to achieve.”
In my mind, the most likely “world class player in any position” that we have been closely linked to in the last few weeks is undoubtedly Petr Cech, and if we can steal this superb keeper out from under Mourinho’s nose it would be a fantastic start to the summer.
Are Arsenal fans feeling much more confident after that statement of intent?
