No one doubts that Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac are great players and will help Arsenal improve, compared to last season, but Arsene Wenger is the first to acknowledge that what other clubs have done so far in the summer transfer period is much more impressive than what Arsenal have done.
Yes, because look at what City have done. They have been quite spectacular in the transfer market, Manchester United as well
the Gunners’ manager said at a Press conference when asked if the coming Premier League season will possibly be the toughest ever since he took charge at Arsenal, 20 years ago.
And it’s not finished – Chelsea have bought Morata and have not lost Costa yet, and they will certainly buy more. At the moment the most active have been United, City and Liverpool a bit
Wenger said. As for Arsenal, he ruled out a move for Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez, but he did reveal that the team will keep an open eye in the market until the very end.
We are still open. But of course at the moment I have 33 players and it is very difficult to manage on a daily basis such a high number
were his words, implying that before buying, Arsenal need to sell, or at least loan out some players, to make space for new ones.
