GUNNER BE OFF
FAN’S VIEW – It is ‘that’ time of year again, crazy season, the January transfer window.
Because of the unusual end to last season and the consequent later summer window we find ourselves back here swiftly.
The mid-season opportunity to strengthen is, of course, always trickier for clubs, with value harder to find and for Arsenal, Edu and Mikel Arteta, it will be no different.
However, Arsenal’s cause has been helped considerably by three back-to-back wins, which will make the task for those selling a move to the Emirates that much easier.
The prospect now is to sign for a project that is blending quality experience with exciting young talent.
I feel therefore this window should be more about replacing the exiting experience with better quality experience as opposed to bolstering an already-exciting tranche of younger players.
With the likes of Sead Kolasinac, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis and maybe even Mesut Ozil departing, regardless of our individual views on their ability, Arteta is losing some elder statesmen.
