With Fabregas and Nasri set to leave, many Arsenal fans are calling for Arsenal to make a big-name signing. Even if Fabregas and Nasri are to stay, the players themselves would be calling out for a big-name signing to join the club this summer. Players and fans want to see that the club has ambition and one of the ways of doing that is bringing in a big-name player.
Now as Nigel Winterburn has pointed out when he was speaking to talkSPORT, big-name signings are not always the answer.
The former Arsenal defender said, “A big signing doesn’t mean you are going to be successful.”
“Manchester United have made big signings that haven’t worked but they’ve also brought in relatively unknown players that have worked very well for them.
“You’ve got to bring in the right type of player. I’m confident that before the end of this transfer window Arsenal will make some major signings. Whether they’re big enough for the supporters [I don’t know].”
We have known Wenger to be a fan of buying relatively no-name players and turning them into stars. Should he continue with this tactic or is it time for him to change and start bringing in big-name players to Arsenal?
