So the Arsenal transfer rumour mill is in full swing and there have been many claims and counter claims, but most fans seem to think that we have real chances of bringing in the free agent Hector Herrera in the summer as our replacement for Aaron Ramsey. I know it is one of many possibilities, but is there any real chance of it happening?
Over the years Arsene Wenger would say the only reason he didn’t spend money was he was only willing to buy players who were really special. Unai Emery is taking a different approach, only buying if he finds value. Now let me make it clear I see no reason why we have to be looking for loan deals or contracts due to expire. I will never accept a fan base, who pays what we pay, while we share a TV contract worth billions, should have to tolerate such a lack of ambition. That though is a debate for another day.
The first transfer signing by Arsenal Football Club in the current January window has not been completed yet but judging by the strength of the reports in the football media this weekend it does seem to be very much on the cards. The player in question is the current Barcelona player Denis Suarez and the fact that he is currently playing for one of the top clubs in Europe would generally make me excited about getting him.
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,”

After the last five matches with bad results where Arsenal won just one, lost three and drew 1, a far cry from the high flying 22 match unbeaten streak, every Arsenal fan must have a fantasy of hearing that we are signing Virgil van Dijk or Kalidou Koulibaly. Bad news, these calibre of players would cost colossal sums that Arsenal are just not known to fork out. You could say, they are unavailable.
With Aaron Ramsey entering the last six months of his contract with Arsenal, it makes economical sense that the Gunners should try to cash in on him during the January transfer window, although the player himself may prefer to wait until the summer to get the best personal deal for himself.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD A WINNING ARSENAL IN ONE WINDOW? by Nicholas
In my opinion, Emery’s best squad right now with the injuries situation and the balance he is looking out to is the pattern of 220.127.116.11. However, Emery will face the problem with his personnel and that’s how he can lift his Arsenal team to being able to compete with the best in the EPL.
There is no doubt that Arsenal is one of the most popular teams in the World, especially in Africa and Asia where the support is fanatical, so it is no wonder that players from those continents dream of growing up and playing for the Gunners. Of course Arsenal have had many great African players at the club and a couple of the highest-rated have been Lauren and Alex Song who both hailed from the Cameroon.
