Arsenal Transfer Plans Will Not Make Fans Happy

Arsene Wenger has revealed that the club is currently working on signing two more players this summer.

The Gunners have began what many expect to be a busy transfer window with the signing of Granit Xhaka from Borussia Mönchengladbach in a £30 million deal last month.

Many Arsenal fans had expected the Gunners to be busy in the transfer market this summer after only making only one signing last year, that being goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Speaking to French TV however, Wenger has dismissed the idea of making wholesale changes to a squad that finished 10 points behind champions Leicester City last season.

“So we’ve bought one midfielder and we’re still in the market to buy one or two more players,” he said.

We have already bought one player – Granit Xhaka – from Monchengladbach, because we have lost three players. We have lost [Mikel] Arteta, we’ve lost [Tomas] Rosicky and [Mathieu] Flamini

“It is not just buying. We have to keep a good balance. If you buy too many players you destabilize your team. So three is the maximum.”

It looks like one of those players will not be England striker Jamie Vardy, with the 29-year-old expected to reject a deal to move to the Emirates.

Wenger admitted at the weekend in an interview with Chinese television that the England international is likely to stay at Leicester, and the club will now look elsewhere for striker reinforcements.

‘Jamie Vardy is, at the moment, at Leicester and from what I know, he will stay at Leicester.’

What do you think Arsenal fans? Are you a little surprised that Wenger just wants to sign three new players this summer?

    I have stay faithful as an Arsenal fan for more than 30 years and looking at the current team , Why is Aresene Wenger not trying to sign skillful and talented striker like Chile “Eduardo Vargas” who can compliment Alexis Sanchez ? I am sure Alexis Sanchez can convince him to join Arsenal this summer or ex-Manchester United striker “Hernandez” from Mexico ? I am sure there are a lot of good strikers currently playing in Copa America. We need good world class striker and strong tall central defender as you can see that Arsenal is always very weak in aerial ball.

    He signed just one last season, he promising to sign at least three this season. Shouldn’t we be glad but as you with Wenger you never know if he will keep to it.

    We are in need of replacing 5 positions – a lead striker, at least 2 midfielders to replace Flamini, Arteta & Rosicky, One defender and a goal keeper in case Ospina leaves. This time, we must win the league at all cost.
