So transfer deadline day has finally arrived, and just for a change we don’t have millions of Arsenal fans clamouring for Wenger to ‘Spend Some Money’ (except for Hafiz again!). Most of us are happy with the arrival of Gabriel, especially with the resurgence of Francis Coquelin as DM.
So we are all calm, and so is Wenger by the sound of things. He has admitted there will be no moe transfer activity unless he gets an unexpected call today from one of football’s leechs (sorry I mean agents!). Wenger said after yesterday’s game: “I don’t think I will be busy. We have done what we wanted and unless there is a huge surprise and somebody calls me – not the journalists, an agent – then why not? At the moment, nothing, it’s very quiet.
And when he asked if anyone else would be following Sanogo, Podolski and Campbell out the door, he simply replied “No.”
Of course this will not stop a few more Arsenal rumours coming through today, and it is still possible that Wenger may get a last minute bargain offered to him this afternoon so I wouldn’t give up just yet. There are players like Winston Reid who have just 6 months left on their contracts and MUST be cashed in on today or their clubs will lose them for free in the summer.
Is there anyone else Arsenal fans would particularly like to see arrive today? Let me know and I’ll give Wenger a ring!
