Windows open. We could use some new blood. Will we get any?
Can Arsenal afford to let Sanchez go and if they decide they can, is there a viable transfer target to replace him?
Debuchy could go but we have no-one to back up as a RWB/FB. Our central defence is wobbly with Koscielny fragile, BFG pensionable and the others inconsistent. We are lacking a right winger as Mr Wenger refuses to play Theo (who is likely to leave). Giroud is 31 and ageing fast. Welbeck is as good a finisher as I am. We lack spark in midfield with no-one able to get a grip on the game. Heaven forbid that Ozil leaves in summer.
So … is Draxler good enough? Is Turan too old? Will AFC compete in a hugely inflated market? In summer it was shocking to read we paid €35m for Mustafi, but at today’s prices was a bargain.
And who could get sold? Akpom, Elneny, Perez, Walcott, Coquelin, Debuchy ++?
My guess is that we will not buy anyone, sell a couple and loan a few out.
What do you think?
