Here’s David Ornstein of the BBC, the best-briefed Arsenal journalist, telling Radio 5live that Arsenal have no more money available for major signings this summer.
Perhaps the key word here is ‘major’, because it seems utterly implausible that the club have no transfer funds left.
The sale of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool for £40m would bring the profit on the summer transfer dealings to around £27m, and when you consider there had to be money in the bank before that it begs the question: WTF is going on?!
Especially as Ornstein suggests there are no plans to replace the England international with a foray into the market.
