So the transfer window has started with a bang with the news that Chelsea have secured the signature of Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic, but he won’t arrive until the summer. The latest Arsenal rumours are linking Aaron Ramsey with a move to Juventus, and that has been confirmed as a possibility by the Juventus director Fabio Paratici on ESPN. “Ramsey is a very good player, who plays for a great team,”
“He is a player whose contract is expiring and we will watch his transfer situation carefully — we are monitoring the situation.
“For now, he is an Arsenal player and we are not the only ones [interested].”
Another one that is being linked is the Real Madrid keeper Keylor Navas, who has put out a pic on Twitter saying thankyou to the Madrid fans, and the Metro thinks he could be coming to Arsenal. Although why we would be looking for another keeper in January is totally beyond me.
Meanwhile Unai Emery has stoked the fire a little by saying that the club is actively looking for players, and considering our massive injury problems I wouldn’t be surprised at all. He said on Arsenal.com: “It’s not easy to change or improve our team with the possibilities in the transfer market, but the club is working. We are looking at different possibilities. Maybe we can improve in the transfer market if we get the opportunity. Maybe we can sign one or two players, but it’s not easy.”
And when asked directly about Chelsea’s Gary Cahill, he replied simply: “We didn’t speak about him.”
So we can have a little hope of new arrivals to boost the squad, but I think we would have to make sales first, and we hardly have any fit players left!
