Arsenal‘s impressive 3-0 win over Fenerbahce shouldn’t hide the fact that they need to add new signings and spend over the next two weeks.
Arsene Wenger‘s side displayed exactly why he and others praise the players that the club does have as they turned on the power and fully exploited the Turkish side. But although the performance resulted in a victory, it also highlighted how they still need to add new faces to the squad.
It would be easy for Wenger to now add some words to this more positive feeling and convince Arsenal fans that there is not a desperate need to spend. But this hopeful mood that followed the game must wisely be ignored and the club should remember that there is a still a need to add.
Arsenal suffered an injury to Lauren Koscielney in the first half and Bacary Sagna once again had to fill in at center back. That is one of many positions where you ask, “just how do they expect to progress with so few alternatives on defense?”
A similar question can be asked when observing the attacking performance from Arsenal. Although they were clinical after a dominant performance, there was a lack of cutting edge up front, with Oliver Giroud struggling to give the movement that would open up the Fenerbahce defense.
It must be stressed that I personally do believe the current Arsenal players are of a high quality, but the small squad, combined with Premier League rivals making frequent additions, means they cannot stand aside and take no actions in the transfer market.
