Arsene Wenger has hinted that he might surprise people before the transfer window closes tomorrow night.
It wouldn’t take much, to be fair. Spending anything on anyone would do it, but on Sky after the game in which Arsenal beat Spurs 1-0, Wenger said, “Maybe we’ll have a good surprise for you.”
In his post-game press conference he was pressed again about possible spending, saying, “I’m ready to pay what we can afford, even if it’s a bit over the market, as long as it’s not crazy. I’m not against spending.
“It’s a domino game. Maybe something will happen in the last 24 hours.”
With Arsenal really down to the bare bones, everyone knows we need players. Credit to the ones we have, and the manager, for getting us through the last four games with four wins, but over the course of a season this squad is just too light to compete.
Let’s see what happens. For those of you addicted to the day itself, Arseblog News will be running a live blog right up until the window closes, so any moves will be brought to you with up to the second info.
Should be fun!
But it’ll be something.
