Arsenal face £15m transfer battle & Wenger £15m move for Atletico ace – Best of AFC

History has told us that Arsene Wenger is always the first one to air his grievances with the international fixture list after one of his players returns to the Emirates Stadium carrying an injury after representing his country. But on this occasion the Frenchman has barely made a peep after his globetrotting brood returned to North London unscathed. Wenger was even the recipient of good news for a change as Jack Wilshere completed the full 90 minutes for the reserves on Wednesday after spending the last 14 months on the sidelines with niggling ankle and knee problems. The Gunners have undoubtedly enjoyed one their best starts to a season in recent memory and the return of Wilshere to the first team fold will serve as an immeasurable boost to Wenger as he prepares his side for the most brutal period on the football calendar

This week on FFC would Theo Walcott be better deployed in his favoured striking position and could the Gunners be about to miss out on one of their priority targets in January?

Quote of the Week

“In October the moment of truth starts for the team. The league establishes itself a little bit and the Champions League goes to decisive moments. Therefore of course, it’s important to be decisive and convincing. The target is always the same [after an international break]. When they come back, we want to quickly focus on our own targets again and get the team back mentally on our next game. I believe that we’ll work and the team, after our last performance at West Ham (a 3-1 win), will want to continue the good run and focus well.” Arsene Wenger believes the ‘moment of truth’ in Arsenal’s season is nigh
