Arsenal fans have been getting nervy this week in the Football Transfer Tavern, with the clubs proposed move for Loic Remy seemingly stalling.
Gunners supporters have endured a difficult time with transfer windows in recent years, which seem to be collectively viewed as a time to either sell the clubs top players, or fail to attract top class replacements.
With Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, and Robin Van Persie all leaving the club in recent years, you could argue the only big money replacement brought in during that time has been Mesut Ozil – who faded badly during the second half of last season.
And with long serving full back Bacary Sagna looking destined to become the latest player to swap the Emirates for the Etihad this summer, Arsene Wenger is under big pressure to deliver some top class signings to help the Gunners push on next season.
A striker has been seen as a priority for some time, with Yaya Sanogo and Nicklas Bendtner both desperately underequipped when it came to supporting Olivier Giroud in the title race last season.
Whilst a deal for Remy still looks on the cards, Arsenal fans can’t help but worry it’s going to be another case of missing out on a top target.
With that in mind, we have identified five transfer alternatives for the club to consider, should the move for Remy collapse.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
