Why Arsenal will struggle to sign top transfers if Wenger stays

Footballers are not exactly well known for being the brightest bulbs on the christmas tree, but they do know about football and they know about their own self interest. Add to that the fact that the problems at Arsenal and with Arsene Wenger have been very heavily reported by the football press for years and we have a problem.

Because if the Frenchman does decided to stay in charge of Arsenal for another year or two I think it could lead to real problems in the transfer market. According to a report by The Mirror it is very likely that both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will leave the club during the summer transfer window.

That in itself is bad enough but as well as creating two big holes in the team to fill, it increases the notion that top players will not want to play for us. Losing Ozil and Alexis after the recent departures of big players like Robin van Persie, Fabregas and many more creates and ever growing idea that the top players are better off somewhere else if they want to win a major trophy.

The fact that RVP picked up a Premier League winners medal the season after leaving us and looking at the success that other former Gunners have enjoyed after moving on does not exactly encourage the top players that Arsenal under Wenger can fulfil their ambitions.

We cannot even rely on financial muscle to persuade big name players to accept a transfer to north London because we are known for paying less than our rivals. So if Arsenal lose our two best players and Wenger signs a new deal, how is the club going to entice players good enough to replace them?

    We will struggle with Arsene. Ozil and Sanchez leaving. Fun times, I bet people are really excited about next season…

  2. Break-on-through says:

    Everybody loses big players to Bayern Madrid and Barca, then PSG to a lesser extent. All other clubs trying to make a dent in the CL will have lost their biggest players at one time or another. Big players sometimes fail whereas others pop up at unlikely clubs. We won’t replace Alexis, but we could replace his goals.

    Google “Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal has never been about results”. Great read.

    In other news grass is green and water is wet.

    I’ve watched Kroenke mangle, distort, and ruin great sport franchises. The Rams had great history, legends, and loyal fans. They were nicknamed ” The greatest show on turf ” when they won super bowl.

    Now, they are complete laughing stock, moved to Los Angeles, have new stadium, and despised by Saint Louis and the fans there.

    Kroenke is the kiss of death, and it saddens me to see it happening to our beloved Arsenal.

    Kroenke doesn’t care; fans abandon team, players quit playing, manager does whatever he wants except set expectations.

    Kroenke is allergic to winning and what it takes to win.
    He is the true specialist in failure, just Google his franchises please.

    Everyone in London please please please voice your disgust. If you think our Arsenal is the exception, you are wrong, dead wrong. Arsenal WILL go down the road of the rams, wait and see

    Even if Wenger signs a “top” player, he won’t sign who we desperately need. Namely a Top DM, another top forward (2 if Alexis leaves) and top LB.

    Imagine last summer if Wenger had got Kante and Lukaku. We would be competing for trophies

    Wenger does these things:
    1. Not spend enough on important positions
    2. Spend more on non vital positions
    3. Gets average quality players most of the time

    If Ozil leaves we should go for a midfield powerhouse with great stamina e.g. Danilo pereira Fabinho
