Arsene Wenger only signed 1 outfield first-team player and that was Petr Cech who completed his move from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates Stadium in the summer for a transfer fee of €11 million.
Arsenal was linked with a number of high profile players including : Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani just to name a few of them but the Premier League club never managed to sign any of them as Wenger had a fairly dry transfer window.
The Arsenal Supporters’ Trust is the official supporters’ trust of Arsenal Football Club and they aren’t happy about the transfer activities that the Premier League club made during the summer. The group has been so dissatisfied by the lack of signings that they have suggested to Arsenal that they should review their transfer policy.
The AST expressed their discomfort by using social media as the group posted a statement on their twitter account which read: “Arsenal is in a strong financial position and it is of course disappointing that the transfer window has closed with just the signing of Petr Cech. Arsenal have built a strong squad and just one or two more good additions would have strengthened the chances of winning a first title in 11 years.
“A review of this type is a good governance practice and can only help Arsenal to become a stronger club. The AST will be raising this with the Arsenal board.”
This recently concluded transfer window was a very underwhelming one especially in comparison to the previous ones of Arsenal as the Premier League club signed Mesut Ozil for €42.5 million from Real Madrid in 2013 and later acquired Alexis Sanchez in 2014 for €35 million.
It’s been over 10 years since Arsenal has lifted the Premier League title and their fans are getting restless as the supporters want to see the English outfit lifting the league title.
