Transfers: Why Should Arsenal Supporters Calm Down?

Arsenal Fans

Courtesy to overwhelming toil at Arsenal, Olivier Giroud admitted that he expects Arsene Wenger to use his spells to land another striker at Emirates Stadium who would assist the French striker in shouldering the Gunners’ striker woes during the course of next season.

Arsenal are linked with almost every striker who’s on the brink of exiting their current club, especially Mario Balotelli, Alexis Sanchez, Loic Remy, Karim Benzema and Mario Mandzukic. Out of all the aforementioned names, it was Mario Balotelli, who was believed to be in the pole position to become the next big thing in North London, but the transfer fell apart as Arsene Wenger rubbished the rumours linking the FA Cup winners with the scandalously famous AC Milan striker.

Twitter was abuzz with rumours linking Alexis Sanchez with a move to Arsene Wenger’s camp as soon as Chile suffered elimination at the hands of Neymar-inspired Brazil. Though a lot of popular, not trustworthy, newspapers claim that the want away Barcelona striker snubbed Liverpool to partner Olivier Giroud, everything is merely cry wolf regarding transfers at Arsenal unless it appears on their official website.

Except for the unforeseen transfer of Mesut Ozil, Arsene Wenger has always been tightfisted and sneaky when it came to transfers and the Arsenal supporting demographic is already sick and tired of his policy though a few beg to differ. Will the former Monaco manager be a killjoy yet again by only signing someone like Loic Remy on the deadline day?

Costa Rica were the dark horses in what was believed to be the group of death comprising three World Cup winners. The Central Americans bested England and Italy as they shell-shocked the world with audacious performances, unmindful of the name and might of the opposition. Though the entire squad of lads deserves appreciation and reverence, there is this one youngster, who was absolutely fearless running into experienced Uruguayan legs – Joel Campbell. Arsenal are accustomed to have strikers who’re a bit shy in front of goal-line in the past couple of years following the departure of loathsome Robin van Persie and this unafraid Costa Rican is definitely someone Arsene Wenger would want to deploy.

Football is not decided by the shirt you are wearing. With work and effort, you can win against anyone. We are very satisfied, very happy with what we have achieved but we will keep working to do more.
– Joel Campbell

Wisdom and aggression do not have to do anything with the age of a person and the 22-year-old striker makes it sound so easy. Notwithstanding a fruitful season, the Gunners were evidently shaky against mighty opponents and with this willpower leading them upfront, nothing could presumably go wrong for Arsenal.

While that’s the case with Joel Campbell, Olivier Giroud has many other reasons to impress his manager. Though he was compelled to play cameo roles in two of the three group fixtures, the Arsenal striker didn’t fail to seize the eyes and capture the hearts with his footballing prowess against Switzerland. He gave Didier Deschamps an early boost as he rose above the Swiss heads to fire home. His surprising sprint and an eventual assist for Mathieu Valbeuna were icing on the cake. Furthermore, the former Montpellier striker was one of the standout performers for Arsene Wenger as he staggeringly netted twenty two different occasions for Arsenal.

Arsenal also have Yaya Sanogo and Chuba Akpom, who are pushing above their heights to secure an Arsenal future.

If Olivier Giroud and Joel Campbell continue to squeeze match winning performances out of their body, Arsene Wenger might head back to England with contentment from playing beach football and realistically no intention of signing someone who would cost him more than Loic Remy.
