Emirates boss has plenty to answer for during trophy drought.
Arsene Wenger promised to be busy this summer in the transfer market but at the time of writing only Carl Jenkinson, Gervinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been added. While Gervinho could be a useful acquisition this season, the other two are very much stars for the future. Arsenal have problems that need to be fixed now!
The lack of activity has driven fans up the wall for years. Now the debt from the Emirates is clear, the boss has money to spend but baulks at clubs demanding over-inflated prices. The whole market is over-inflated so bargains are hard to find but Wenger certainly has missed out on a few.
Shay Given has moved from Newcastle to Manchester City to Aston Villa for a total of £10million, while Wenger has allowed the goalkeeping problem to drag on. Defensive issues have been dogging the first-team but Chelsea spend £23million on a David Luiz, who at 24, will offer many years and great value for money.
