Can Arsenal now challenge Man City in the transfer market as well as the League?

Arsenal is preparing for a busy summer transfer window. I know all you want to hear is how wonderful Arsenal is and how it is written in the stars that they will win the league, but why sing you that melody when you already know it?

Instead, I’ll look forward to what the summer holds for Arteta, and in doing so, I’ll quote Hale End Graduate Jay Boothroyd, who will explain why Gooners can anticipate a blockbuster summer transfer season. The former Gooner is so convinced Arteta will be supported in the summer transfer window that he claims we shouldn’t be surprised if big players move to the Emirates.

With these big deals, he sees Arsenal being as good as their main rival, Manchester City. “They have already said that he has money to spend in the summer to add to the squad,” said Bothroyd on Skysports, as quoted by HITC. “Big players are being talked about. The Declan Rice’s of this world is one.

“You look at Manchester City, and they have that already. You take out Kevin de Bruyne, then you bring in Foden. You take out Grealish, and you are bringing in Mahrez. They have got such, such good players and a top squad, so it’s going to go right to the wire. I think it will go to the final few games.”

Every Gooner hopes that if everything goes well, they will win the league and continue to fly high even next season with more top class additions, rather than being a one-hit phenomenon.

We can all agree that if they get it right in the summer, that could be the case.

  1. City is a state-owned entity! How on earth is a traditional football club like Arsenal supposed to compete financially with a government sport-washing agency with an endless flow of cash?

    1. By building a squad with homegrown talent and then add some top class signings.
      We’re already doing it now and we have done it in the past.

      Our academy is second to none and with an owner who is now actually supporting the club, we will compete with city, united, chelsea and united.

      1. I agree. Putting pure money considerations aside, for young & talented players Arsenal is becoming the place to be again. At the end of the day, there isn’t much that you can’t get on 150k/week that you can get on 300k/week or R500k/week or whatever. It’s all crazy superstar money, so if it’s not just about that then Arsenal is very attractive. And it’s not like Arsenal wages are low either, just maybe not quite up with what the sugar-daddy clubs can offer.

  2. One thing at a time. Let’s first win the Premier League or at least qualify for the Champions League and make ourselves an attractive proposition to players who we might be looking to buy. It’s doubtful that we can compete with the financial wealth of Man City however much Kroenke spends, but we do have an excellent academy that is churning out some great talent, and at least we can relate to players that have been home produced.

  3. Competing financially with oil rich clubs owned by countries is suicidal. Why not just maintain the same system and policy which working successfully currently? I don’t want Arsenal to become the club that need or afford players. I want Arsenal to become the club that players need or afford.
