Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has defended the transfer policy of Arsenal, suggesting there would be no point buying players for the sake of it.
The season that saw Cech joined Arsenal, saw the goal keeper as the only signing of Arsenal despite the call and obvious need for an outfield player. Sadly, Arsenal ended the season without a season as it was believed that a quality signing would have been the difference.
This season, Arsenal have made the signing of only one senior player, Granit Xhaka joining for 30million Pounds. With other rival clubs busy completing deals, the fans of Arsenal are yet again deriding their club’s lack of transfer activities but Petr Cech appears to agree with this philosophy.
“I think you need to buy players you need, you need to buy players that will improve the team and not to buy players just for buying.
“That’s the philosophy of the club. Ive been here since last season and you can see that every time we bring in a player, it’s a player we need, and the manager believes he improves the team..
“There is a core of the players who have been at Arsenal for years, and they know that is an advantage as well. People get to know each other, how to play together.
Arsenal are currently in the market for a striker as confirmed by Wenger.
