With the way things have been going for Arsenal since the turn of the year, it might finally be acceptable for the Arsenal fans to hear Arsene Wenger saying that the summer transfer business might be a bit quiet for the Gunners as there are no players available to sign for the right price that would actually improve the starting XI.
I do not expect this to happen though, as the Frenchman really seems to have the scent of the Premier League title driving him on again. And even if he feels that his first choice side now is good enough to become the champions of England, Wenger will be all too aware of how an injury problem or two could derail our challenge.
That is why I expect the Frenchman to be looking for quality players this summer that will fit quickly and easily into the Arsenal team. Versatility will also be high on the manager’s list of abilities and so the Arsenal transfer rumour in The Mirror, which they apparently have fresh from Germany, linking us with a summer transfer move for Ilkay Gundogan, seems very plausible.
The Borussia Dortmund and Germany star does not have long left on his contract and has intimated that he is ready to move to the Premier League. So he will not cost too much and with the ability to play anywhere in midfield, the 24-year old could well be one of the missing pieces Wenger is looking for to complete the Arsenal jigsaw puzzle. What do you think Gooners?
