You have to start wondering if there is an underlying reason for players not wanting to sign for Arsenal this summer, because it is starting to feel like Arsene Wenger and the Gunners are having serious trouble convincing the many reported transfer targets to come to one of the greatest cities in the world and play in the most prestigious leagues in the world in a state of the art stadium with Champions League football as the cherry on top.
After the Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy turned down the offer to come to Arsenal it has been a long list of players like Mkhitaryan who have been linked with us but gone elsewhere. The latest player to snub a move to the Emirates is the Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi and even though the money being talked about seemed to be way over the odds, the latest on the story reported by Metro is not good news for Arsenal.
The report reveals that the player himself has taken to social media to explain that he does not want the move to happen, and this is before his club has either accepted or rejected any offer from us. What now for Wenger and his Arsenal transfer plans? Do we have a big problem?
