We’re asking out Arsenal supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern to sum their current season up out of 10 at the moment and the reply we’re getting is around the 7.5 mark.
Having of course made a hash of their opening day fixture against West Ham United, not to mention their first two group games in the Champions League, these have represented the low points.,
However on the flip side, this has been the week in which the Gunners have beaten Bayern Munich on the back of two notable results away to Tottenham in the Capital One Cup and against Manchester United at home in the league.
So it’s fair to say that it’s been an emotional mixed bag for Gooners but right now, Arsenal sit second in the Premier League a nice distance away from Manchester City while their Champions League hopes were still kept alive three days ago so all in all, it could be a hell of a lot worse.
What many of our Arsenal fans in the tavern crave is a few more squad reinforcements in the January transfer window, particularly if the Gunners are in touching distance of first place in the Premier League in the New Year.
The Gunners are often described by pundits as a great team for seven months of the season with Wenger’s men going off the rails in the other three and we saw a few seasons back that Wenger priced himself out of a January move for Julian Draxler when Arsenal were sitting pretty heading into the final straight.
Arsenal fans will hope he’s learnt his lesson while swooping for some further depth in the form of Paris Saint-Germain’s Ezequiel Lavezzi who has been heavily linked with an Emirates Stadium switch today.
But who else may be joining the Argentine in North London. Here’s five men who might be!
