Following the euphoria surrounding Petr Cech’s switch across London from Chelsea to Arsenal, Gooners in the Football Transfer Tavern are impatiently waiting for news of their next big name arrival this summer.
The news they did receive this week revolved around the fact that club captain Mikel Arteta has now penned a new one-year extension to his deal at Emirates Stadium and although he provides leadership qualities, Arsenal fans are now downbeat with Wenger probably now choosing to avoid signing a new defensive midfielder as a result.
Seemingly every summer, Arsenal are always one or two players away from boasting a squad that is considered complete and with the signing of Cech undoubtedly boosting the Gunners’ chances of lifting the title next term, wouldn’t it be great to see Arsenal really go for it and sign a few more established pros in key areas?
Arsenal and Wenger have always claimed that they’ll only go for outstanding players who can not only improve their squad but not disrupt it at the same time and this tact hasn’t always gone down too well with our resident Gooners.
That said, most Arsenal fans were screaming for Wenger to make a move for Radamel Falcao on last summer’s transfer deadline day so it proves not all fans can play manager so successfully.
Today in the tavern, our landlord has asked our Arsenal contingent what final jigsaw piece-type signings they’d like to see arrive in the remainder of the window as we draw closer and closer to the 2015/16 campaign.
