The window transfer business for the summer was concluded yesterday. As expected there were rumors, gossips and vast of movements. With all the summer transfer frenzy, Arsenal was expected to do business. So how did they fare?
In the last season, Arsenal came close to winning the EPL title but fell short in the closing stages. It was evident that Arsenal lacked two to three signings to maintain the momentum. A striker and a defensive midfielder were the least that Arsenal needed.
So in this window, bar from making replacements Arsenal was expected to strengthen in those areas. In the concluded transfer they have acquired Chambers, Ospina, Alexis, Debuchy and Welbeck. Three of those players are replacements.
By signing Welbeck (after being linked to Falcao, Cavani, Cerci, Remy and et al) Arsenal has a cover for a striker. Whether he bags the goals, it is yet to be seen. Good luck to him by the way. However, after being rumored to sign the likes of Khedira, Carvahlo and Bender, Arsenal has failed to sign a defensive midfielder. An area that was desperately needed.
So another summer is gone and it concludes without addressing all the areas needed. The team now has to compete with the available squad. Hope in this season once the momentum is up it will never stop. Come on boys!
