With some Arsenal fans beginning to get frustrated at what they perceive to be a lack of effort from Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer window, apart from the very encouraging and well received signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea, I have been thinking about how the Frenchman is going about his business.
As I suggested the other day, it looks like the boss is fairly relaxed on the transfer front, mainly because the Gunners squad is already looking very strong. As long as the bad luck with injuries does not come back with a bang, there is a good argument that Wenger already has the tools to challenge for the Premier League.
But this does not mean that he is not going to sign any new players for Arsenal, just that he is in no rush to do so. As reported by Metro today, Wenger has confirmed this approach and with the first games of pre-season just around the corner, he is clearly more concerned about the players we already have than those we might be getting, especially with seeing who is fit and injury free.
He will certainly have a list of possible targets and it sounds like these will all be of top quality, but is looks like Wenger is keeping his cards close to his chest and waiting to see what Arsenal really need before making any moves.
The prof said, “If we can still add some quality, we will do it.
“We lost (Mesut) Ozil and (Olivier) Giroud for long periods last year and they contributed a lot in the second half of the season. Let’s hope all these players will be fit and available.
“The best way to strengthen other areas of the team is to get the players who did not play a lot last year and keep them fit.”
So where do you think Arsenal will need to strengthen and who do you think will be the players to do it?
