The next 7 days are going to be critical for Arsenal as we need to bring in some new quality players before the transfer window closes on 31 August. With Fabregas and Nasri having left the club we need to bring in some new midfielders and it is being reported that Arsene Wenger has increased his bid for Rennes defensive midfielder Yann M’Vila to £22million.

Wenger needs to start spending such large amounts so we can start bringing in quality players. Gone are the days when we are buying £5million players and hoping they perform.

Wenger has already had a £15million bid rejected for the 21-year-old and his latest offer would shatter Arsenal’s transfer record for an incoming player.

We currently have Song and Frimpong playing as our defensive midfielders and we saw how well they did last night against Udinese. Now if we can have Song and M’Villa holding our midfielder, we will be a force to be reckoned with and not be bullied in the middle of the park.

My worry is that such transfers to bring in new players should have been done right at the start of the transfer window because now we are panic buying and clubs are going to inflate the prices of their players. Nasri said he told Wenger that he wanted to leave Arsenal at the start of the summer, why did Wenger not just sell him then and thus he would have had time to bring in a new player rather than holding onto a player who does not want to play for us and had already made up his mind to join City.

    Why the last minute panic? Good question. The club had the money to buy quality weeks ago now they will have to pay a premium. Doesn`t make sense.

  26. right_mr says:

    Wenger holding onto both Fabregas and Nasri has done wonders to ensure the opposition teams did not get a chance to integrate the players during their preseason. Obviously this was great for us. WHat isnt so great is we will have the same problems integrating new players, however, I think we are merely missing 2 midfielders and 1 fullback and as a bonus 1 centre back.

  27. igeto says:

    i feel pity 4 all of u, it seems u dont know ur manager dat is how he always deceive dont mind him he wud not bring new faces i read his comment dis morning he said’we have so many in player injured if dey come back they are like new signing such as diaby,squilaci,wilshere,gibbs,can all dis mentioned players win trophies 4 us?
