One way or another this latest bit of Arsenal transfer news could spell trouble for our club, especially now the situation regarding Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil and the ongoing attempts to get the two star Gunners to sign new contracts has been splashed all over the football media.
As reported by the Daily Mail and many others, the Gunners are now in danger of breaching English Premier League rules about wages, which stipulate that no club can increase their wage bill by over £7 million from one season to the next.
It is widely known that Arsenal are going to have to offer both the German playmaker and the Chilean striker a hefty pay rise to get them to stay and the report claims that could cost us an extra £15 million a year. So Arsene Wenger is backed into the corner a little bit.
The manager may have to accept losing at least one of these players to another club or if he does keep them he will have to remove other players from the wage bill and that could see us lose some key members of the squad. Simply releasing the likes of Lucas Perez is not going to be enough, so how will Wenger get around this one do you think? Taxi for Theo Walcott?
