5 players Arsenal should AVOID signing today

Riyad Mahrez – I do not see the former PFA Player of the Year as Arsenal quality. If we sign him, it will be as a short term fix before we target better players last year (players who we perhaps missed out on this year). Mahrez will cost a big chunk of money, and command a high contract, yet he could be surplus in 12 months time and Arsenal will struggle to move him on.

Johnny Evans – £30m for 29 year old Johnny Evans? He might be Premier League experienced, but he certainly is not top class. Like Mahrez, you feel he is someone who would clog up the wage bill for years to come.

Thomas Vermaelen – It would just be a Wenger thing to do to let Shkodran Mustafi leave, to then sign the former Arsenal captain on loan from Barcelona.

Ross Barkley – We have just got rid of one overweight English “midfielder” who has flattered to deceive throughout his career. Why then spend big money on another?

William Carvalho – Long linked with Arsenal, he is now 25. Why have we not signed him in the 5 years we have been linked with him? Concerns of fitness and technique, that’s why. Nothing has changed. He is not good enough. Do not be tempted.

    Arsenal squared should have be shuffled since the start of this transfer window but not…. Players dat arsenal should have sold: ozil, Sanchez, chamberlain, Gibbs, chambers, Campbell, debuchy, sanogo, wilshere, ciquilain, and buy Draxler, lacazztte, seri, asensio, van ditch but Wenger decided to keep the indiciplined Sanchez. See Chelsea with Costa for example..
