Our proposed summer transfers seem to have gained some momentum with a few rumours popping up here and there.
But before we can add to our current squad, we have to get rid of some of the deadwood that has prevented us from greatly expanding the side.
Though I’m one for the whole ‘getting rid of deadwood’, I was surprised to see some of the names who made the list.
Bendtner has of course been heavily linked with a move away from The Emirates for quite sometime now, with the Dane being sent out on loan last term, and French centre-back Squillaci and South Korean striker Park were rarely seen.
When asked which players would be on their way out, Wenger mentioned the three names above and said they would be finding new homes come August:
‘Bendtner, Squillaci and Park will be on their way to go somewhere.’
To be honest, Park doesn’t deserve to leave.
We signed him last season and he was barely used. I feel he wasn’t given enough time to show off his attributes.
In my opinion, we should give Bendtner at least on more season.
I know there are other strikers in the squad now, but what if injuries begin to take their toll? Plus, he is a good front-man; he just doesn’t seem to have that all important finishing touch which can be worked on by the coaches.
Squillaci. Sorry to say, but I will be glad to see the back of him. He’s had his chances and didn’t impress in a large number of them.
Most of you will say, ‘what do you know, Wenger is the manager’. But he wouldn’t have signed Park if he knew he would sell him exactly one season after purchase, or maybe he did for marketing purposes. Just to sell more and increase our fan base in Korea. Who knows.
I just feel Park and the ‘Great Dane’ deserve one more shot and if they don’t perform then Wenger has every right to show them the door.
