It seems to be going according to plan for the Arsenal in the current transfer window…. slowly.
But some of the prices being paid by other EPL clubs seem a bit high….. Liverpool paid Newcastle £17m for Wijnuldum and paid Southampton £36M for Sadio Mane, but thy’ve recuperated some of that with the sales of Ibe, Teixeira and Skrt, however, the prices paid for two average players from the EPL is alarming.
Chelsea have spent £65.2m on Kante from Leicester and Batshuayui from Marseille, United are still pushing to sign Pogba for near £100m and City have spent £34.8m combined on Gundogan and Nolito plus an undisclosed fee for a player called Zinchenko.
Arsenal have spent £34 on Xhaka, £2m on Rob Holding and an undisclosed fee for the Japan forward, Asano…… so for us it’s all going a bit slow but rumours persist that we are in for Mahrez and Lacazette…. we’ll see. Wenger continues to say he is active in the market but with a trip to the USA just starting and the season beginning in 3 weeks he doesn’t have much time. Add to that the news that the BFG is injured and could be out for up to 5 months things are not looking good for our first game against Liverpool on the 14th of August. Please Wenger…. spend some fucking money.
