Arsenal fans have had to endure taunting resulting not only from our trophy drought, but also transfer market drought.
You just wonder if the club truly has money or somebody is playing with our minds.
Well, Chelsea have entered the race to sign our defensive transfer target Shkodran Mustafi, this is according to reports.
Arsenal have been linked with a transfer for the player but the club denied knowledge of any bid by the club. However, Wenger had made it clear that he is in the want of a centre back as a replacement for the injured Mertesacker.
Meanwhile, Chelsea want him to partner Kurt Zouma at the heart of their defence. The likes of Cahill, Ivanovic and Terry have all regressed and Conte wants to address that position immediately.
Latest reports on Arsenal target Shkodran Mustafi of Valencia claims Arsenal will table a bid of £20million for the world cup winner.
With Laurent Koscielny given an extended break following his Euro 2016 duties and Gabriel Paulista currently recovering from tonsillitis, Arsenal are left without a reserve centre-back, leaving the French tactician with no choice than to sign defensive reinforcement for the position.
We know how Chelsea usurped Manchester United to the signature of Pedro.
