2014 Transfer Window: Spending for Success from Arsenal F.C. and Arsene Wenger
With a month still remaining in the transfer window, Arsenal F.C. have already set a club record for money spent in one transfer window. Not known for being a spending club, Arsenal and their manager Arsene Wenger have decided that in order for them to continue their success from last season’s FA Cup victory, they must spend and spend BIG.
Although they haven’t quite reached the financial level of a Real Madrid C.F. or Manchester City F.C., they have shown a new attitude in their approach to signing players, which will only benefit Arsenal from here on out. Injuries have plagued Arsenal in recent years, but it seems like the 2014-15 campaign will have a much different outcome as Wenger has brought in players at many positions to add depth to the squad, something that Arsenal has lacked over the past decade.
New addition Alexis Sanchez has been brought to give the gunners a true mobile finisher who has a knack for goals. Other marquee signings include Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers, who have come to fill the gap left by Bacary Sagna, who opted to sign with rivals Manchester City F.C.
Wenger has even insisted that he’s open to signing more players, which has left many supporters shocked yet excited about the future for the club. This transfer window will go down as being the crucial stepping stone that takes Arsenal from a really good club to a great one. Expect them to have tons of success domestically in the Premier League but most importantly expect them to shock the world on the European stage.
