Comments made today by Arsene Wenger smacks of a cover up.
Our fearless leader reckons that should he not dip into the transfer market for a second time this summer, then we have plenty of players, even though later in the interview he admits that 'There are one or two positions we can still strengthen." Weird no?
Last season Wenger was foiled at every turn with regards to his transfer targets, Baptista, Robinho, Shaun Wright-Phillips and so on, all were snapped up by other teams after Wenger admitted he was in the market for them. Do you honestly think he would make the same mistake twice? Once bitten, twice shy.
At the close of the transfer window last summer, Arsene Wenger admitted there was a player on his way to Arsenal, but the Highbury faithful would have to wait at least twelve months before his transfer materialised, could this have been Rosicky? I doubt it, especially as Arsene stated that Rosicky's signing was fast-tracked after Le Bob told him he wanted to leave.
So who is this mystery player?
I guess we won't find out until the boss is ready, but in the mean time, have a butchers at Wenger's exclusive interview and decide for yourselves whether or not you think Wenger is putting up a smoke screen.
"I have already respected my word," said Wenger when questioned about further signings. "One is in.
"But I give myself time now for the second if it happens because I feel we have plenty of players. Look at our squad. In defence there`s Djourou, Senderos, Campbell, Toure, Cole, Clichy, Flamini plus Hoyte coming back. In midfield, Gilberto, Fabregas, Hleb, Rosicky, Ljungberg, Flamini who can still play there and Reyes. Up front as well we have plenty of players too.
"Remember we have players at the World Cup who have not featured for us."
"I would be comfortable yes [if we brought in no one else] but you never know, we might go for somebody else if the right occasion comes along. There are one or two positions we can still strengthen."
