Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are getting excited in the smoking area, after their boss stated a new arrival could be secured in the next ten days.
Talksport quotes Arsene Wenger has stating that a transfer deal could be completed within the next ten days, with the French boss making the comments after Arsenal’s narrow victory over Newcastle United on Saturday.
“I don’t give much away (about transfers) because I don’t know (what’s going on). I want to talk about them and hopefully we are capable of doing something in the next ten days.”
“It’s more about quality than quantity because our players will not stay injured forever. Francis Coquelin is starting to run, Santi Cazorla will be back mid-February and Mikel Arteta is back now so hopefully we can add one and, if needed, two maximum.”
“It’s not a dream. Nobody knocks on your door at Christmas and says ‘I have a fantastic player to sell to Arsenal’. You have to be realistic.”
Our Arsenal punters are used to Wenger’s cryptic transfer messages and believe this is as close to a confirmation of signings that you will get from the boss, now switching their discussions to who the players in question may be.
Arsenal currently lead the way in the Premier League with a two-point gap over second-placed Leicester City, with the Gunners now preparing to kick-off their FA Cup campaign this weekend with the task of winning their third consecutive crown.
