The annoying international break began in earnest last night with many Arsenal stars in action, and over in Paris David Ospina was keeping goal for Columbia against France.
With Christmas coming up thick and fast, that means that the new year is only around the corner, and we are sure to see a swift increase in transfer speculation surrounding our beloved Arsenal.
Arsenal have been slammed by the Sunday Time’s top football journalist Duncan Castles, claiming they embarrassed themselves on deadline day to go with a disastrous transfer window. The Gunners brought in only two players this summer in Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac, whilst overseeing a number of exits, and after finishing outside the Champions League spots last term, you would have expected much more improvements.
Manchester United are claimed to be ready to launch a bid to sign Thomas Lemar this winter, forcing Arsenal’s hand.
The Gunners failed with a £92 Million move to bring the French international to the Emirates on deadline day, and manager Arsene Wenger has already admitted that he will return for him in the future.
Monaco chief Vadim Vasilyev has claimed that Thomas Lemar did want to leave the club for Arsenal or Liverpool, before he convinced him to stay.
Les Rouges et Blancs went on a selling spree this summer, after a thoroughly impressive season in which they dominated the French division, as well as reaching the semi-final of the Champions League competition.
Arsene Wenger has been snapped in Paris on deadline day, as Arsenal desperately seek a player to replace Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean forward looks to have agreed terms with Manchester City over a deadline day switch today, leaving our club with £60 Million to find a replacement in the next seven hours.
Arsenal have apparently lodged a British record bid to bring Thomas Lemar to the Emirates.
The Monaco youngster emerged as one of the top talents in Europe last season, and has been high on Arsene Wenger’s wishlist all summer.
There is seven days remaining of this summer’s transfer window, and so far we have failed to strengthen sustainably.
Our squad doesn’t appear to be light of options, but we have a number of issues within our squad including injuries and contract sagas, and question marks remain on whether we will hold onto the players we have.
