Arsenal have lost their best players season after season, the only thing I can think right now is who will go this summer? With players leaving every season like Van Persie and Fabregas I have realised that we simply cannot compete for the biggest players anymore.
The latest player Arsenal have been linked with is Stevan Jovetic who now seems to be on his way to Juventus after apparently agreeing terms with Arsenal which proves my point. Jovetic isn’t even one of Europe’s biggest stars but he is one for the future. The fact that Jovetic was ready to come to Arsenal but changed his mind as soon as Juventus showed interest just shows that we can’t compete with a club like Juventus. If we can’t compete with Juventus then how will we compete with clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea.
We have even been linked with Wayne Rooney in the last couple of days which is actually quite funny. This story is nonsense and im sure Stan Kroenke would be having a heart attack thinking about the wages he would have to pay to Rooney. Alisher Usmanov would probably be happy to pay his wages but for the foreseeable future we will not be paying anybody that much money.
We have also been linked with Polish striker Robert Lewandowski but he seems to be going to Bayern Munich or Man United if the move to Bayern falls through. I was hoping that Lewandowski would be a realistic transfer target and I prayed that he would come to the club.
It has even been said that Cesc Fabregas may be coming back to the club but I knew instantly that wasn’t going to happen. I wouldn’t even want him back but I still think he would not come back unless he was being forced out of Barcelona with no other options.
Arsenal fans may not admit it but we simply cannot compete with top clubs for top players anymore. We are priced out of moves for every player and we wont pay wages that clubs like Chelsea and Man City will pay. For future success we have to hope that the players we can get will punch above their weight and bring back an elusive trophy that we haven’t seen since 2005.
