Arsenal prepare for January splurge by attending ‘transfer speed dating’ event

Arsenal will be represented at the Football Transfer Forum today when a number of directors of football, scouts, and agents will be present to prepare for the upcoming transfer window.

The Gunners were the biggest spenders in the summer, with each of the new additions having already made an impact in the first-team this season, which can only help the hierarchy’s trust in the transfer network which sign off on the budget.

We are currently well in with a shout to finish inside the top four, and in turn potentially return to the Champions League for the first time since Arsene Wenger departed the club, and strengthening in the coming window could well be on the agenda.

While we are linked with a number of incomings and outgoings, there is always that doubt that there will be very little movement as we have seen in some previous windows, but our involvement in a pre-transfer window forum will surely mean that we are preparing to make some moves, especially with the new concept regularly billed as ‘transfer speed dating’.

Attendance is via invite only, but representatives from Arsenal, Tottenham, Brighton, Southampton and expected to feature at the event, as reported by the Leicester Mercury.

The transfer rumours coming out in the coming days could well prove to be telling as we try to figure out the manager’s thinking in regards to the coming window, but there should potentially be a central midfielder, a winger or a forward on the agenda, while moves for Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun could also be on the agenda.

    I’d dispute that the new signing Odegaaard has “made an impact this season”.

    He was only on loan last season , so is a new summer signing but has been pants, basically.

    I agree that all the other first team signings have made good impacts and RAMSDALE A SENSATIONAL ONE

      I agree jon about Ramsdale ,but why do you think he’s been so good ?
      Because we have been under the cosh pretty much every match because of Artetas dismal tactics

    I am not a fan of Odegaard, and think we need to replace him

    I am still unconvinced about Ramsdale. I think he has had several lucky breaks in recent games, which went for him.

    He nearly cost us a goal when he dashed to the edge of his box against Watford and missed the ball.

    Against Liverpool there were two low shots which he fumbled but managed to dive on before a Liverpool player could get to them.

    The thing about having luck go your way, is that sometimes it goes against you.
    I reserve judgement on him until I see how he handles a bad luck streak.
