Right now in the Football Transfer Tavern, Arsenal fans are suffering that oh so familiar feeling of being envious about another clubs’ transfer business.
Only a few weeks ago, our resident Gooners thought everything was changing for the better following the relatively early signing of Petr Cech by Arsenal’s often late standards.
However, Arsenal fans have been left looking peeved after Manchester United completed a double swoop for both Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin yesterday, wrapping up their signatures in swift style.
Arsene Wenger often tells Arsenal fans that he’ll only add quality signings that can truly change the fortunes of his side in every transfer window but this tact is often painstaking for Gooners to endure.
Having missed out on not only Schneiderlin but also Geoffrey Kondogbia who joined Inter Milan, you can imagine the #WengerOut mob are lighting their pitchforks if Francis Coquelin gets injured and no significant cover in the defensive midfield position is brought into the club.
Not only this but Arsenal also sometimes go after players that nobody could’ve imagined prior to them arriving at Emirates Stadium.
Just look at the likes of Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck who have arrived in recent transfer windows; nobody and not even the press caught wind of their transfers until right before the time in which they moved.
Alluding to this theme somewhat, we’ve come up with five left-field transfer targets that Arsenal may be considering this summer.
