Le Boss intends to bolster the midfield for the forth coming season. With Gilberto and Flamini departing over the summer, the centre of midfield is an area that needs strengthening.
“We will need one more body in there,” said Wenger when asked about his midfield. “At the moment we do not have Alex Song who is going to the Olympic games, Abou Diaby was not here tonight and nor was Fabregas.
“If we find a reasonable target then we will do it. But there is no special name on the list.
“We have some time. We have until August 31. We left 11 players back in Austria for this game. They will play in Stuttgart [on July 30].”
So Wenger says there is no special name on the list but he is a sly little devil when dealing with signings and in truth nobody except Le Boss knows who will arrive!
It was disappointing to see Flamini and Gilberto (especially) leave the club, but now its exciting to find out who Arsene brings in to partner Cesc next season.
It may be a typical Wenger type signing (someone nobody has heard of!) or Le Boss may surprise us with a big name.
Its very important Wenger makes the right signing, one of intent and I'm sure he will make the right signing for Arsenal Football Club.
Whoever it is needs experience. For some reason I keep getting the gut feeling that Gareth Barry is on his way to the Emirates. I think that Wenger is letting Liverpool show their cards and then will steal Barry!
I know, wishful thinking! But what a signing that would be.
Who do you think?.....
Keep it Goonerish......
