It has been a transfer window of..well not much for Arsenal fans. The business of Arsene Wenger and his background staff has been defined by Yaya Sanogo, who incidentally is their best signing, worst signing and their annual French signing this summer all in one.
Wenger has insisted he is working hard to bring new faces to the Emirates Stadium but this has been to no avail so far. The lack of business has frustrated fans and this reached boiling point when the Gunners lost their first game of the season at home to Aston Villa. Having players like Emmanuel Frimpong on the bench simply isn’t good enough for a club who have just qualified for the Champions League.
Meanwhile, across North London, Arsenal’s arch rivals Tottenham have continued to make a string of impressive signings as they prepare for life without Gareth Bale. A similar contingency plan of replacing quality with quality was not really employed by Wenger after he lost talismanic players of the past like Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie. Nevertheless, it does seem like Wenger is willing to end his era of tightness and reach into his wallet and spend – a bid for Luis Suarez proving this.
However, last week a derisory bid of just £10million was submitted to Newcastle for Yohan Cabaye which angered the Magpies and left many questioning whether Wenger was still out of touch with the modern realities of the transfer market.
