Not even Arsene Wenger could come up with anything positive to say about his Arsenal team after the Gunners were completely outplayed in a 4-0 humbling by Liverpool at Anfield. Surely even the Frenchman can no longer claim to be happy with the quality and depth of his squad as he tried to say after last weekend’s defeat to Stoke City.
The good news for Wenger and for the Arsenal fans is that there are still a few days of the summer transfer window left and that gives the boss a great chance to sort out his problems before it is too late. Wenger must be aware that the Arsenal fans are furious and frustrated about the lack of transfer action so far and about the way the new season has started.
So with large cash reserves at the club and a desperate need for a boost to his playing options and the general mood around Arsenal, I think we could be set for at least two more signings and they will need to be good ones. According to The Mirror we are still hopeful of getting Thomas Lemar from Monaco and maybe even Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton, but they won’t come cheap.
The Gunners could spend over £100 million to land those two, so with the club record purchase of Lacazette we could be set for the biggest transfer window splurge ever.
