Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is respected and loved by all Arsenal fans for his long service at the club, and leading the club into doubles and records, but his strict policies on transfers are taking its toll.
A run of poor performances and results in the Premier League and Champions League have left Arsenal fans irritated and upset, with the team they have watched for so long playing the beautiful game at its best, disappearing in front of their eyes. Arsenal took the dramatic decision in the past 2 years to sell their top players, Including Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Robin Van Persie, and have still yet to replace these big names will equal counterparts.
In the summer transfer market Arsenal secured the assistance of French forward Olivier Giroud, German wingman Lukas Podolski and Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla, but there is still a big void that needs filling in the current squad. Due to recent criticism and chants from the crowd, there has been speculation that the Arsenal boos are once again going to secure help from good friend and former Gooner Thierry Henry.
The Arsenal fan and former legend of the club was brought back for a short 6 week spell last season, after arsenal struggled to maintain any structure in their squad, and with his and Robin Van Persie’s assistance, they soared to reach third in the league table. And even though Arsene Wenger has down talked these rumours, it would seem as though the loan deal for the Frenchman is still a strong possibility.
There is also much speculation that the gunners are going in for the in-form forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Schalke. The Dutchman has only months left remaining on his current contract with the club and has refused to sign a new deal, leaving the club in the sticky situation of selling their star man, or risk losing him on a free. Schalke said last week that Arsenal could not afford their top man, but Arsenal seem confident that they could steal the Dutchman for a £5 million deal.
Arsenal did seem to silence some of the critics earlier this evening with an emphatic 5-2 victory over Reading.
