Arsene Wenger has told us (the fans) to be patient before he continues his summer spending spree – haven’t we heard this before?!
As we all have come to realise, Wenger has already signed German international striker Lukas Podolski and is thought to be keen on strengthening his side further as the days past.
However with injuries to assess, the Frenchman will apparently weigh up his options before signing anyone else:
Quoted on talkSPORT.com, Le Boss said:
‘We wanted to get at least one of our transfer targets sorted out early and we are pleased to have achieved it [with Podolksi].
‘The next phase of our ‘signings’ will be to take care of our injured players and make sure they are back for the start of next season.
‘I am thinking of players like Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby and Per Mertesacker – when these guys are fit we have quite a big squad and before we can buy again we have to assess how many players we have.’
To be fair he does have a point. We have a lot of injured players to come back, some more key than others.
I would like Wenger to continue his summer shopping, but for now he and the rest of the squad must solely concentrate on the last game of the season, this is undoubtedly more important than acquiring new recruits.
We (the fans) will have to remain patient and see what Wenger has in store at the end of the season. Hopefully he doesn’t leave it to the last day of the transfer window to make his signings though!
