It’s getting pretty nasty for the Gunners out there who are eagerly waiting for their first summer signing (well of course someone other than Yaya Sanogo). Last week following Arsenal’s disappointing defeat to Aston Villa in the opening round of the Premier League campaign, 4000 angry Arsenal fans wrote to the club demanding the management to spend money. And yet there have been no new additions to the squad so far.
Although a 3-0 victory over Fenerbache on Wednesday have restored parity to a certain extent, the fans are behind the Wenger and the board all the time. Whilst Arsene Wenger have promised to sign players, a plethora of them have actually been linked this week from the likes of Cabaye and Kondogbia to Benzema and Di maria. Arsenal will face Fulham tomorrow before they host Tottenham next week and the fans would like to see fresh faces before they face their arch rivals.
This is the the letter, seen by Sportsmail, which reads: ‘Many thanks for your email. We understand and share your disappointment that Arsenal Football Club plc have not secured any acquisitions on players for the new season.
‘In terms of our dealings in the transfer market, we can assure you we have been working hard throughout the summer to bring in additional players and this will continue until the end of the transfer window.
‘We are clear that our ambition at Arsenal is to compete for and win trophies. This ambition is shared by our majority owner Stan Kroenke, the board, Arsene Wenger and everyone who works for the Club.
‘I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued and valued support of Arsenal Football Club plc.
‘On Behalf of Arsenal Football Club.’
