For the punters in the Transfer Tavern, Arsene Wenger’s late transfer splurge seemingly got him back in the good books of our Arsenal supporting locals.
Though the 66-year-old remained dormant for much of the close season, the late arrivals of Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi have renewed title optimism amidst the Emirates faithful who often frequent our four walls.
Considering the remarkable number of injuries the Gunners chief usually has to contend with across the course of a campaign, reports from the Sun have actually surprised fans in today.
They claim the Frenchman blocked a last-minute deal for striker Yaya Sanogo to join Championship outfit Leeds United on loan for the season.
Usually, the North London giants leave themselves far too light and injuries are often cited as one of the major reasons they tend to fall away from the Premier League’s top order towards the proverbial ‘business end’ of the season.
So, imagine the delight amongst the Arsenal fans in today when they saw their often lamented coach actually making attempts to prepare his squad for a campaign.
Wenger reportedly informed Whites chief Garry Monk that the 23-year-old remains in his plans going forward.
Will Sanogo come of age this season?! Let us know below….
