This latest Arsenal transfer news is sure to dismay a large number of Arsenal fans around the world, as the club finds itself in pole position to finally reclaim the Premier League title but is also at risk from the injury list ruining our chance just like it did a couple of years ago.
But it looks like Arsene Wenger is willing to trust to look and hope that the Arsenal players currently on the injury list come back and that we do not lose any more key players like Mesut Ozil or Olivier Giroud. Or that is how I took his comments in the post match interview reported by the Arsenal website.
The Frenchman said, “There is a little bit [fixture congestion]. But I believe that the next step is to get Rosicky back, Welbeck back, Sanchez back, Wilshere back and maybe we will get one player in. Overall, I think we have no new injuries so I’m not worried. If we had the same number of injuries we would be a bit short.”
I am assuming that the manager’s one player is the Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny who we expect to be announced as a new signing very soon. I hope that Wenger has already taken him as a new player and that could mean that he plans to make one more transfer this month but to be honest I am not very confident. How about you?
