And former Gunners man Parlour believes the failure to land an outfield star this summer immediately puts Wenger under pressure.
“I think he should have tried to bring players in and I think he did try but it could not happen”.
“But I don’t think Arsenal team is strong enough to challenge for the title this season“. There was outrage over the news that the club knew beforehand that Danny Welbeck was required to undergo a surgery on his left knee and yet they didn’t spend the millions sitting in the bank to strengthen the key positions.
“We’re way off and I think we’ll be lucky to get fourth this year”.
Thierry, you are doing your training badge at the Emirates. January is the most panic-buying window so I don’t know if we’ll manage to get anyone by then. YOU are helping to train them!
Mahrez has been in sparkling form so far this season, bagging four goals in as many games in what has been a superb start to the campaign for Claudio Ranieri’s men.
Wenger is unlikely to be anxious by comments made by pundits such as Parlour, although he will be able to feel the pressure from the stands should things not go well this term. It [the transfer window] started really well with Cech; I thought that was a great signing. “They had Ozil two years ago, Sanchez last season and it just didn’t happen”.
“Benzema was mentioned but I don’t think he was ever available; Real Madrid had to keep him“.
“It’ll be interesting to see what happens now because he’ll be under pressure Arsene Wenger”, Parlour is quoted as saying by HITC Sport.
