What are we waiting for?, what is our excuse for not signing our targets yet, An injury to Holding or Chambers or Alexis Sanchez or Oliver Giroud?
A lot of fans and I are totally confused as to what is currently going on with transfers. Nonetheless, Wenger has reiterated his commitment in signing player and we have no choice than to hold onto hope against hope that one or more players will be added before the window closes.
Speaking ahead of the trip to Leicester City, he spoke on our main targets saying:
I believe it is better I don’t speak about any individual player. We are working very hard. You are absolutely convinced that I don’t want to spend the money, but I would like to reassure you that we are ready to spend the money we have. As always, not the money we haven’t got [because] it is not my money.
We do not talk about individual players. I told you already what the are the criteria for the price of a player but you could add one more: the identity of the buyer. When the buyer is English, it is true that it multiplies the transfer by two or three or sometimes by 10 because if for the same player an English club does not come in, he is worth five million. But if an English club comes he is worth 35 or 40 or 50.
