This summer has seen Arsenal bring in five new players, with Unai Emery making the defence a priority. However, with just 24 hours to go in this window, the fans are now calling for a new addition, preferably a winger, but according to Jeremy Wilson of The Telegraph, that won’t be happening.
Transfer deadline expectations at Arsenal: No more ins. Perez to West Ham. Maybe a move for Welbeck but far from agreed while other possible outs abroad, such as Ospina, will probably drag further into August

The fans will have known that the likes of Lucas Perez, Danny Welbeck and David Ospina were all looking at being shipped off this summer, however, considering the club are able to sell players after tomorrow’s 5 pm deadline, the fans would rather see the club work hard towards one or two more incomings and then focus on shipping off the deadwood after tomorrow, when the chance to sign players has gone.
The upcoming season will be huge for Arsenal and if they can get off it a winning start on Sunday against Manchester City then they’ll be very well placed to kick on and have a real go at getting back into the top four. The defensive signings that Emery has made could come good and if they do Arsenal will be in a really good position to challenge their top four rivals, however, if things don’t go as planned, it could be a quick derailing job for The Gunners’ season.

So our CBs this season will be Mustafi, Sokratis, Holding, Mavropanos ( and possibly Kos). Oh dear

What’s the point of selling if we’re not going to buy

We are on some positions just 2-3 injuries away from playing some 17 yo guy!

Sad if no more ins…

Arsenal will not make the top 5

Awful news if true.
Arsenal are 2 players short.
In desperate need of a winger and ideally another CB

The supporters are all desperate to see a couple of more players coming in this window, even if there are some sources saying that won’t happen.
