Arsene Wenger Won't Budge From Transfer Stance

Wenger's patience is not being taken well by his supporters

Arsene Wenger, the man who’s at the centre of some severe criticism by Arsenal aficionados over being virtually anonymous in the transfer market, especially when three of their top players are on the verge of moving out, is looking to bide his time and is in no mood to rush into the transfer market. While reports of  Arsenal’s attacking backbone leaving in the form of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas are gaining momentum, and one of Arsenal’s most competent and experienced defenders in the form of Gael Clichy having virtually become a Citizen, many would have thought alarm bells would start ringing and shake up Wenger into being pro-active in the transfer market. That however, was not to be.

In an interview to a French radio station, Wenger said he’s in no hurry to jump in the transfer market just yet.

Currently, everyone is standing still. Everyone expects everyone else to make the first move. Everyone holds on to their cards, hoping for the major transfer.

Nobody blinks until late July, early August. Then we will analyse the gaps in each team.

But I am very active on the phone.

With his Premier league rivals Manchester United and Manchester City having made their intentions clear about leaving no stone unturned to strengthen their side further ( United having already signed three quality players in the form of Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David De Gea) these latest comments by Wenger smell of lethargy and ignorance and could aggravate the frustration among the Emirates faithful.
