Arsenal need to bring players IN rather than letting more leave! by JN
Arsenal fans were obvously perplexed in the summer when Arsene Wenger sold Thomas Vermaelen and then loaned out Francis Coquelin and Carl Jenkinson without bringing in better quality replacements, which was instrumental to our awful results during our defensive injury crisis.
For the last few weeks our problems have been in the striking department when Giroud was banned and Danny Welbeck joined our multitudes on the treatment table, but how has Wenger responded?
First off all he let Lukas Podolski move to Inter Milan and has made it clear that he is sending Yaya Sanogo out on loan. Now today the Star has revealed that Arsenal are also going to allow Joel Campbell to be loaned out to a Spanish club to give him some much-needed game-time.
They are reporting that Campbell’s agent is coming to the Emirates this week to talk to Wenger about a new contract, which Le Prof is insisting on before allowing the Costa Rican star to go on loan in La Liga, and to discuss possible destinations.
According to reports in Spain David Moyes is apparently keen to take Campbell to Real Sociedad and another club interested is Villareal, with Campbell believing that La Liga is probably most suited to his style of play, but nothing will be confirmed until the contract talks are finalised.
Arsenal are expecting quite a few of our squad to return from injury in the coming weeks which will give Wenger some more options when it comes to selecting his starting XI, but can he really afford to deplete his squad any further without bringing in replacements?
