Arsenal fans are not quite sure what to think about the latest claim coming from the Daily Express and our regulars in the Football Transfer Tavern cannot blame them.
The Gunners have reportedly activated the buy-back clause in the contract of former player Carlos Vela, and whilst we can recognise that the attacking star has done well at Real Soceidad, we thought Arsene Wenger might be aiming a little bit higher this summer!
Arsenal fans thought that after their FA Cup success, the club would look to kick on and really improve things – and try to attract world class players in order to do so. However judging by their lack of activity in the market thus far, not to mention their moves for the less than title winning Vela, we think that Wenger could well be up to his old tricks once again.
He might be cheap at £3.2 million, but our punters think this is a very bad move on Wenger’s part!
