Arsenal fans are looking horrified here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear the latest claim from Metro -with the publication claiming that Wenger has decided on most of his plans for the summer transfer window.
According to the publication, manager Arsene Wenger is not looking to sign another central defender and we certainly think that this is a huge error, with the north London side’s defence never the best thing in the world and while they seem to be obsessed with buying wingers and tippy tappy players, we think some much needed solidity is really what they should be after – but it looks like at least for now, it will have to wait.
Wenger claimed: ‘Debuchy can play there, Monreal can play there so you can say we are not out to buy a central defender,’
‘And Gabriel will be a great central defender, believe me. So we have now sorted out the centre backs.’
