Despite falling to a 1-0 defeat away to Stoke this weekend, it appears that Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal will be reluctant to bring in any further talent to strengthen their squad due to the depth they already have.
The Daily Mail have reported the French boss stating: ‘We have too many players. It is not manageable. Many clubs are in this situation – that is why the transfer market is quiet.” Wenger added, “We have 33 players at the moment. We have too many players.”
While reasonable depth in a squad can often play to a teams advantage throughout a campaign, it would appear that Arsenal’s vast number of players is actually hampering them in their pursuit to bring any further talent to the club.
It is unclear thus far as to whether Wenger will be parting ways with any members of the current Arsenal side. Therefore, one must assume that it is unlikely that the Gunners will be able to strip back their squad in time to allow any further additions to come in.
Arsenal’s summer signing Alexandre Lacazette has hit the ground running with a goal on his league debut and a goal ruled marginally offside this weekend against Stoke.
Despite the French striker’s effective impact upon his arrival it would appear that Arsenal are unlikely to make additions to Lacazette and the further summer signings that have already been completed.
