Arsene Wenger will never change 8

Posted on July 31, 2016 by David Nugent

It seems that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has to justify his transfer decisions every summer. Surely he must think there is something wrong in his actions if he feels he needs to defend them?

The French boss has recently talked about how hard it is to strengthen his squad. Yet Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have not failed to strengthen their squads.

A lack of ambition

Arsenal is always considered as a team that could mount a Premier League title challenge, but in the end, a poor mentality or lack of cover in certain positions puts an end to that title challenge.

In the past few transfer windows Arsenal have been linked with hundreds, maybe even thousands of different players, some realistic targets and some not so realistic targets.

However, some of the prominent players linked with moves to the Gunners in recent windows, like Grzegorz Krychowiak, Nolito and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have moved or are about to move clubs this summer.

Two reported-Arsenal targets will play in England next season

Arsenal have been linked with Spanish international forward Nolito off-and-on for the last few transfer windows, but the former-Celta Vigo striker has got his move to the Premier League with Manchester City.

According to reports from Spain, Arsene Wenger hasn’t given up on Celta Vigo star Nolito and will battle FC Barcelona for the signature of the highly-rated striker.

El Mundo Deportivo claims that Arsenal are willing to trigger the player’s €18 million buyout close, suggesting that the London-based club is financially strong to beat the Catalan giants and steal Nolito under Barcelona’s noses.

Arsene Wenger has already made moves to bolster his squad in January, having all but secured the signing of Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny, but the French manager is said to be looking for ways to further improve his team’s chances of a strong finish in the Premier League title race.

Premier League giants Arsenal are reportedly stepping up their efforts to sign Spanish forward Nolito from Celta Vigo, according to numerous reports in Spain.

In the light of the recent injury crisis, the Gunners may decide to add more bodies to the squad in an attempt to keep their Premiership title bid alive and the Spain international is reportedly high on their wish list.

It was initially believed that Nolito would almost certainly be returning to Camp Nou, but it would appear as though Barcelona were forced to pull out of the race.

According to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal is set to make a move for Celta Vigo winger Nolito in the January transfer window. The Gunners have recently been linked with the winger and it seems the Gunners could now make a bid for the former-Benfica star.

The 28-year-old has been in superb form of late, scoring five in seven La Liga appearances. He has also been very consistent over the past few seasons. Last season he scored 13 league goals and also collected 13 assists.

Arsenal linked to Andriy Yarmolenko 0

Catalan daily newspaper Sport has moved to suggest that Arsenal are among clubs showing interest in Dynamo Kiev star forward Andriy Yarmolenko.

The Gunners are being linked with signing at least another attacker in the January transfer window and they have so far shown interest in Aleksandr Kokorin and Nolito.

However, the latest reports suggest that Arsenal are also looking at Andriy Yarmolenko, although they are not exactly the favourites for the player’s signature.

Premier League holders Chelsea are believed to be leading the chase for the Ukraine star and it is no secret that manager Jose Mourinho was in the stands yesterday evening as Ukraine suffered a 1-0 defeat to Spain in their final Euro 2016 qualifier.

Arsenal linked with January move for forwards 0

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are set to make January moves for forward pair Aleksandr Kokorin of Dynamo Moscow and Celta Vigo star Nolito.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was criticised during the summer for not bringing in another striker, or more importantly a top-class striker.

The Daily Mail seems to believe that the Frenchman will attempt to add to his strike force during the January transfer window, with the veteran boss supposedly sending out his scouts to find suitable additions. However, neither of the two players linked with the club could be described as world-class.
