The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger spoke at the press conference about what people should expect from this year’s summer transfer window, and according to him there’s quite a bit to look up to.
The Frenchman snubbed rumours which were saying that the Gunners are going to be highly active on the transfer market saying that they don’t need a lot of players, because they currently have a large number of quality players and the squad can only hold 25 players.
However, Wenger admitted that the Gunners are going to be highly active when it comes to big players and that they are looking to bring some big names in the summer. A few names have been linked with the Gunners, and German striker Lukas Podolski seems to be a sure target for Wenger who acknowledged his interest in the forward’s skills in several occasions.
Other excellent players like Frenchmen Olivier Giroud, Steve Mandanda and Yann M’Vila are also rumoured to be on Wenger’s summer list which also holds the names of players like Hazard, Vertonghen, Mertens, Gotze and perhaps a few others I might have forgotten to mention.
By far the best rumour if we look at things from an Arsenal fan’s point of view, is that linking the Dutchman Arjen Robben with a move to the Emirates Stadium, but as good as it sounds the deal is one almost impossible to make for Wenger who surely can’t offer Robben the wage he would request.
Which ‘quality’ signings do you think Arsenal will make this summer?
