People may mock me, but I have been saying this for weeks when everyone has been upset by our lack of movement. I said all along I have a gut feeling we are not going after ‘average’ players and that Wenger is possibly going after a big target that he feels he can get. He has been cryptic but the signs are there (Gazidis saying stuff like ‘all will be fine’ ‘the fans will be happy’ and Wenger saying stuff like ‘the money is not the problem the player has to improve the team’ etc) am I saying they will GET the player, nope but because us fans are used to the transfer period flops that’s what we generally think is going to happen. I genuinely think though this time they are genuinely going for someone big as even Wenger and Gazidis say ‘the money is there’ that is not the issue…we want top tier players now and it’s only top tier players that are likely to keep the likes of Ozil and Sanchez happy. We go and get Lacazette he may be good but for the likes of Ozil and Sanchez that’s meh…players like this are used to playing with the likes of Messi, Ronaldo not ‘okay’ talents.
Wenger has openly admitted recently also that the owners and Gazidis are eager to spend and he is reigning them back in so I reckon there is more going on behind the scenes than we know. It does not compute to me that the likes of Lacazette is there and we need a striker but we have not bought…to me Lacazette ain’t worth the money and is not much of an upgrade but an underwhelming signing. Lewandowski WILL NOT sign a new contract that has been said time and time again he is refusing to sign (don’t know why) and I reckon he will go for a LOT of money maybe £75m…but also something else cryptic was said recently I cant remember where I heard it, but something to the effect of there is a player that has done it all but wants a new challenge and that things are being discussed’
