Should Arsenal have bought Demba Ba?

It seems, in the light of Olivier Giroud’s injury, that perhaps Arsenal should have been quicker to sign up a dedicated striker aerlier on in this transfer window.

One of those possible arrivals was Chelsea’s Demba Ba, who Jose Mourinho stopped from going to the Emirates last summer. Instead Besiktas snapped him up and he very nearly scuppered Arsenal’s place in this season’s Champions League proper.

He was asked if he had any regrets about not joining Arsenal. He replied: “I’m happy at Besiktas,”

“How close did I come to joining Arsenal? As close as you and me here, but it’s past. I just look forwards.

A review of Arsenal’s transfer activity – Are we Happy?

Overall Arsenal have had quite a disappointing summer in terms of transfers. For most of the window we had seen a lot of players go out the door one way or another, whilst we were left eagerly anticipating when the real business would begin. That business never did come, until yesterday when Arsenal fans and I think most of the world stood back in shock to see that Arsenal had pulled off signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.

Why Arsenal should make shock move for Chelsea striker!

In recent weeks Arsenal have been linked with a few strikers such as Christian Benteke, Gonzalo Higuain and Stevan Jovetic just to name a few. Things concerning Benteke at the moment are quiet and Higuain and Jovetic look to be going to Juventus, so who will Arsenal turn to next? David Villa is a good option or Arsene Wenger could take a gamble that would be a great success for the club if it pays off.
