Arsenal’s difficult season means there is an expectation from supporters to get deals done quickly this summer, acquiring players of sufficient quality to take the club to the next level.
Arsenal’s financial might at this time has opened up new markets for them, as seen by the signing of Mesut Ozil last summer. But Arsene Wenger, known for seeking out a bargain, will surely be on the lookout to take advantage of players coming to the end of their contract or exploit low release clauses.
One way or another, the Arsenal manager must offer up a far better showing this time around. If he’s to stay on at the Emirates for another two seasons, he’ll need to do a lot to win over those supporters who have lost faith.
