Okay Arsenal fans, the season is over for another year and it actually turned out to be a reasonably happy ending, with the last day disaster of Tottenham handing us our highest finish since we won the Premier League with the invincibles in 2004, although the real goal of the EPL title could not be grasped once again.
Now inevitably the thoughts of the football world will turn to the international tournaments of the summer and the preparations for next season and you all know what that means. We will soon be up to our necks in Arsenal transfer rumours and most of them will not be worth the digital ether on which they float.
However, our illustrious leader has for once give a clear indication of what we can expect from the summer transfer window, if not the actual details of which players he is after or even which positions he wants to strengthen. As reported by the Evening Standard, the boss actually put a figure on how many signings Arsenal would be looking to make and while it is not as many as most of us would like it is at least two more than we got last summer.
Wenger said, “We want to keep the squad stable over the summer while strengthening where possible. You want the group to be stimulated and to believe that we have improved the quality.
“I must say, we want to combine technical stability with players that we know want to play and know our game. Maybe bring in three players for example. That’s the right level for me.”
I personally would guess that the three would be a centre forward, central midfielder and central defender and of course we want them all to be top quality, but is this enough transfer business to give Arsenal a title winning squad?
