Hey guys, happy new month to you.
Just like yesterday we started the year and now its July, whoop whoop!!. It’s almost as if the year is competing with Usain Bolt??, you better laugh ‘cos that was funny.
With each passing day, we get closer to the new season and now we are in July, the new season is just next month. Thank God for the Euros that has been keeping us company, boy has it been fun to watch and I just wish one of my favorites would win it.
Oh well like you already know, its July 1 and what does that mean? It means the transfer window officially flung open today and we can do our business now.
To be honest though, I still cannot fathom why there is an official opening date for the window seeing as teams start signing players even before the season ends, I guess it’s for the registration sake.
Yes I know we had already signed Xhaka before the window opened and we can only expect more signings, or not?. Before I hit my main point, allow me talk about Xhaka a little. I have to say I have been really impressed by the Swiss international and save for the crucial penalty miss, I can boldly say he had a fantastic tournament for the Swiss team, his tackles, recoveries, pass rate and all that were all on a high rate, he just had to miss a penalty. What a very Arsenal thing to do????.
Anyways back to the crux of the matter. The window is open now, the season starts next month, our rivals are recruiting, now would be the perfect time to follow suit.
Batshuayi, Ibrahimovic, Gundogan, Mane, Nolito, to name but a few, have all joined our rivals and boy we need to act fast before The Prof would give us that ”I wanted to sign but the right players were not available” banter. Even my unborn children which I would have with the wife that I am yet to find know that we need a striker, yes Vardy rejected us and opted to stay at Leicester but we should not stop there, there are other options.
Lukaku, Morata, Aubameyang, even Icardi, these are just some of the names I would be happy to see on or jersey come August 13 when the season starts. We know Real Madrid have activated Morata’s buy back clause and in my opinion I think we could push them to sell.
I am not a fan of the transfer window and the rumors that come with it but boy was I sad when I checked tabloids and the only person we were linked to was 21-year old Japanese international, Takuma Asano. I’m here like ”who is that????? He might just be the next Henry but I hope that’s not all we are after though.
The time to act is now, act fast, act now Mr Wenger.
