So the wait is finally over as it has been confirmed in both Italy and England that the Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to join the Italian giants Juventus this summer. It was confirmed six hours ago in Italy by the Sky journalist Fabrizio Romano who tweeted……
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.
Mesut Ozil has definitely turned into Mr Marmite amongst Arsenal fans since he won a massive pay rise to re-sign for the Gunners last year. His wages, his lessening ability to break assist records any more, his ever-increasing injury record, and his laissez-faire body language, have all contributed to a divide in fan’s opinion about his worth to the club.
At a time when Arsenal have an injury crisis, we have a young centre back and midfielder we could recall from loan spells, but still the priority is saving money. At a time when the club are cautious about being self-funded, they don’t want the embarrassment of having to pay a couple of million for their own players?
Time For Clarity by Dan Smith
I’m both depressed but also appreciate Arsenal leaking out the news that they won’t be spending heavily this January. At least we don’t have to spend the month clinging to the hope of rumours. It is worrying though that the club don’t even care about the fans from a PR perspective to even pretend they have ambition.
WE have all seen how Arsenal’s defence has been getting steadily worse over the last four years, and despite the arrivals of Sokratis (30), Lichtsteiner (34) and Mavropanos (21), it has not improved at all, in fact we have conceded 30 goals in our first 20 matches this season, this compares to 51 in the whole of last season and only 44 the year before. Of course Koscielny (33) and Monreal (32) are also getting on a bit, and Mustafi (26) and Holding (23) have yet to prove they are top class players either.
WHAT DO TEAMS DO WITH TRANSFERS? ARSENAL SHOULD REALIZE by Nick
What do PSG, Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich have in common? When it comes to the transfer market, these are the guys that will pay huge monies for all manner of talent available across the planet. It is what Arsenal have had ambitions to do but have been unable to reach these heights.
