Things are definitely looking up for Arsenal fans on the transfer side of things, if you believe what you read in the various outpourings of the Arsenal transfer rumour mill that is. The signing of Lacazette from Lyon appears to be only a matter of time and even if the Gunners have to accept the departure of Alexis Sanchez I think we have to applaud Arsene Wenger and the club for that.
On the Alexis issue as well, I think we have to see that that the boss does not have a lot of bargaining power but some will say that this makes little difference as he never uses it anyway. But maybe now those critics will have to change their tune as the Frenchman appears to have been as solid as a rock when it comes to Hector Bellerin.
The Spanish right back has been heavily linked with a transfer back to Barcelona and when I started to hear this I thought it was only a matter of time. Now we are hearing, as reported by the Evening Standard, that the young full back is well aware that Wenger will not be dealing with Barca and that he will be a Gunner for at least one more year.
Nice work Arsene! Keep it up!
