Arsenal, Arsene Wenger: Why Always Me?

The phrase that landed on the tongues of millions of people, taken from a simple but brilliant t-shirt.

You have to wonder though, if these simple words have yet escaped the mouth of Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman’s transfer policy has been publicly criticized by former club legends in the past and the grumbles coming from the fans is getting louder by the minute, not being helped by their hero and talisman being linked to other clubs on a daily basis.

Then you look at Wenger, notorious for being a bad loser, and wonder if it is really his ”transfer policy”.

Former defender Alan Smith said – “its almost like its his money and hes careful how he spends it”, while second all-time goalscorer Ian Wright stated that he would “love to see Wenger being given the same sort of transfer pot that the likes of Jose Mourinho had at Chelsea”.

That is the thing though, Wenger will never be given the kind of transfer budget Mourinho had at Chelsea, but one thing is for sure- he would definitely take it.

Things look to be improving with the signing of German international Lukas Podolski for £12million, while Arsenal continue to be linked with some of the top stars from across the channel.

Fresh from winning the title, Montpellier stars Olivier Giroud and Younes Belhanda are being linked with a move to Arsenal, and if reports are to be believed a combined fee of £18million could be enough to secure the signings, which could prove to be superb value for money.

Meanwhile the same £18million price tag is being touted for Rennes star Yann M’Villa, but if the chequebook was to be opened and Arsenal were to have a new record signing, Wenger would certainly have a star in the making on his hands.

If the trio were to sign, along with the return to fitness of Jack Wilshere and arrival of Podolski, this could be the intent required to convince captain Van Persie of the club’s ambitions to win trophies and be able to seriously compete domestically and in Europe, which he wants to see before committing to a new contract.
