Arsenal legend expecting transfer disappointment

Former Arsenal defender Tony Adams believes that his old side will endure another summer of disappointment in the transfer window.

The Gunners’ dealings in recent years have garnered much criticism from fans and pundits, with a host of top name players, such as Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie, having been sold and few top class replacements brought in.

Mesut Ozil’s £40m arrival last year has sparked talk that Arsene Wenger is willing to spend big, and with the FA Cup having been secured rumours have suggested that the Frenchman may well make major changes to his squad to spark a genuine push for the Premier League title.

But former centre-back Adams says that he sees another underwhelming window in which deals will be rushed through at the last minute:

“Arsene [Wenger] won’t change his philosophy now,” he told The Express.

“It will be same old same old and try and get everyone on the last day I’m afraid. Against the big clubs, they will come unstuck.

“Arsene is the man – for 17 years straight they have qualified for the Champions League, the club seem happy with that and they have won an FA Cup, but I don’t see them moving to the next level.”
