Just when we thought Arsene Wenger had turned a corner and come to our demands of bringing in a new defensive midfielder, he disappoints us once again.
The Poland international has a £22 million buyout clause in his existing deal at Sevilla, and while reports were suggesting the Gunners were ready to activate it, Wenger, to the dismay of the Arsenal faithful, says there is no foundation to these rumours and will not be making a move for the 25-year-old:
When asked about the potential move for Krychowiak, Wenger said:
‘No. Always people think the solution is from the outside, but I say let’s look inside and produce the performances. It is more intelligent than expecting it to happen from outside.’
For me, Krychowiak would be the ideal signing to strengthen our side. He’s a dymanic, goal-scoring, tough-tackling midfielder who would give Coquelin and several other midfielders a run for their money and, for £22 million, I don’t see why Wenger hasn’t made a move for him already. So to find out the Pole is not even on his radar is beyond me!
