Arsenal Chairman Peter Hill-Wood has made another public appearance. This time he said that Arsenal are not going to spend big this January to ensure the business keeps running swiftly. This news comes soon after Andrei Arshavin’s agent said he might be an Arsenal player in the coming days. The Chairman of Arsenal said:
“I don’t think there is a lot of money anywhere. One has got to look ahead – in the future there is probably not going to be much more money coming in. We have got money, but I am not sure we are going to spend it. We’ve got to continue to run the business in a sensible way. It may sound boring, but we are not going to rush out and spend fortunes on people who won’t help us achieve anything better than where we are at the moment. Arsene has a lot of young, talented players at the club and I think he will probably give a chance to one or two of them.”
One thing is for sure now, Arsenal has got the money! But probably now Arshavin will be the only player coming in this January. But he said we are not going to spend on people who are not going to help us achieve anything better than we are at the moment. A quality central midfielder does not fit into this condition. So maybe we might still see Alonso or Arteta coming in. Or maybe as Hill-Wood said Arsene might give a chance to a couple of youngsters so as everyone knows Arsenal’s central midfield needs strengthening so probably Ramsey might be playing more often from now on. But I still hope either Arteta or Alonso join Arsenal along with Arshavin this month and I am sure we will then be challenging for the title, and not just the Premier League but the other two trophies too will be in Arsenal’s sight.
