Arsenal fans might have been frustrated by the lack of transfer business done by Arsene Wenger in the January window but at least our Premier League rivals did not do much in the way of big signings either. So it is pretty much as you were, although the Gunners have boosted the central midfield options with the purchase of Mohamed Elneny.
Only time will tell,of course, but I have a feeling that the key piece of transfer business for Arsenal and our quest for the EPL trophy could be the failure of Leicester to sign a striker, as they are so heavily reliant on the goals of Jamie Vardy and Claudio Ranieri has already admitted that he is not fully fit.
The Foxes were very close to getting the French striker Loic Remy from Chelsea on loan and that could have been a big problem for us. As it happened, their own on loan player, the Colombian forward Radamel Falcao, went to Spain to rejoin his former club Atletico Madrid. And as reported by the Daily Mail this meant that Chelsea were not willing to release Remy after all.
Leicester face a tough month with games against Man City and Liverpool as well as Arsenal and they could really have done with the extra fire power, so have Chelsea and Falcao just done us a massive favour?
