Oscar’s Chelsea transfer spells DOUBLE trouble for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger had a stark warning for Arsenal and every other club in the Premier League this week, as reported by Metro, after Chelsea announced the transfer of their Brazil international midfield star Oscar to the Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG for an eye-watering £60 million.

As well as the Arsenal manager’s concern that this sort of transfer swoop of players in the Premier League from the cash sodden Chinese league will become more and more regular, I think that Arsenal fans have another big woory to consider fro the big money transfer of Oscar.

It might be bad news for Chelsea and all of us in the future, but with Oscar having started just five EPL games under Antonio Conte and with the injury list at Stamford Bridge almost non-existent, I do not think it is going to have an adverse effect on them now.

In fact they are going to0 have a nice wedgeof cash to add to their transfer budget for the January transfer window and that is likely to be bad news for the Gunners as we hope to complete a few good signings of our own and catch the current league leaders in the second half of the season.

Does it seem to you that Chelsea are getting all the luck they could wish for this season?

    How does Chelsea sell Oscar and Luiz for +£100 million when couldn’t even get a mere £2 mils for is. Podolski, who’s an almost 120 capped player for Germany?

    In addition we can’t seem to sell players for actual value. Fabregas went for a criminally low fee. And seems like every player who gets to turn 30 at Arsenal, gets a new contract for charity and can basically milk wages until they leave on a free (ie. Flamini, Arteta).

      I agree, it’s sick. Chelsea are so lucky when selling. Luiz was awful, and had a shocker at the World Cup, and Oscar is just a squad player.

      Would be interesting to see what offers Arsenal have received, that were turned down. Arsenal haven’t made any big sales in a long time, but we must have had offers. Problem is, Wenger wants to keep players around for ever, even if they don’t contribute anything.

    As much as this hurts me to say this but Chelsea has an owner that always wants to win.

    Had we won the champions league final in 2006 I think the club would be a completely different direction today. Say what you want about Chelsea but they have a champions league win under their belt as do Man Utd and Liverpool. Also the way it looks now Man City have a better chance of grabbing one before us as well.

    If a CSL club paid £60mil for Oscar then we have a real fear over Alexis.
    We know he has been offered more money then we can compete with from over there and if they do have money to throw around then who can see Gazidis turning down a big money transfer?

    Forget about what Wenger would want or do, think about our owner… As much as I hate Chavski, their owner wants to see his team win stuff, our owner wants to see his team make a profit.

    When that is put into the equation then I believe we have a real worry.

    Our only hope is Gazidis incompetence at getting a good price for a player and as such making the profit small and more harm to the club… I can’t help but laugh.

    What a gift horse for Chelsea. The equivalent for Arsenal would be a £60m bid for Ramsey. Both have bags of potential and youth on their side but have flattered to deceive.
