Massive: Arsene Wenger hints at Arsenal exit!!

Wenger

Being an Arsenal fan is not easy at the best of times. But this summer, life as a Gooner has been particularly difficult. Understandably, Arsene Wenger’s lack of appetite for new purchases has left Gooners all over the world enormously frustrated.

A lack of activity in the transfer market has represented an auspicious start to the summer and with Arsenal already looking ill-prepared for a daunting looking opening run of Premier League fixtures, pressure is already growing on Wenger before a ball has been kicked in anger.

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the Premier League’s opening weekend, Wenger somehow looked a bit confused. He also failed to rule out his own exit from the club at the end of his contract next summer.

The veteran Arsenal boss said: “You never know in your job. It is a love story that you hope will last your whole life but you know it could stop at any moment. What I will do is continue to work as long as I have the physical potential to work. I will always work.”

He also ducked a question about whether he was offered the England job ahead of Sam Allardyce saying: “I think I’ve shown that I respect my contracts and I rate loyalty highly. I have one more year to go with Arsenal so I was not available anyway.”

However, when speaking about Arsenal’s transfer strategy this summer, Wenger has insisted that Arsenal are far from finished in the transfer market this summer, despite their search for a striker to challenge Olivier Giroud appearing to stall in recent weeks.

The Frenchman insisted that the club were still happy to pay up for any targets who were available, but did admit that the market was short on the calibre of players he was hoping to bring to the Emirates.

He further stated: “No not at all – we want to spend the money when we have it. But we respect the money we have – it is very difficult to find the quality of players who are available. Despite all the money that exists in England, there is very little movement in the transfer market.

“We are in the transfer market, we are focused on concentrating on the players we have to get them ready for the season. On the other hand, with what happened with us, of course, we are looking outside to strengthen our squad.”

Wenger runs into his last year of contract at Arsenal with his future still uncertain. And perhaps, just for once — Arsenal can break away from their frustrating cycle of frustration doing and ensure beyond doubt Wenger’s legacy is one of greatness rather than a groundhog.
