Those who thought Arsenal’s £ 140million spending frenzy was an isolated incident may have been proven wrong as early as January after details of their new transfer strategy emerged.
The Gunners performed major surgery on their underperforming squad that summer. Six first-team players were signed for a total of around £ 140million. All six of Aaron Ramsdale, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Nuno Tavares, Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard gave the starting signal.
In addition, the club’s concerted effort to sign players under the age of 24 looks like a feat.
The new recruits have all contributed to Arsenal’s 10-game undefeated streak, but with their prime ahead of us, this type of streak is unlikely to be an isolated occurrence.
After years of spending cuts arsenal The fans would be forgiven if they thought the buying frenzy won’t repeat itself anytime soon.
But a report from the athlete (about the express) has delivered another positive update to the Gunners.
They say there could be more spending in January after their new transfer strategy is announced.
Arsenal will reportedly be aiming for “one or two major signings” in each transfer window from now on.
The club hierarchy is satisfied with the current core of the players they have put together. Instead of spreading the money out among a bunch of mediocre stars, the new approach will be to add stardust with real elite players.
To support their cause, Arsenal will target top stars who have release clauses in their contracts. They believe that the nature of the “distressed market” has given them a unique opportunity to make waves in the windows to come.
The Covid-19 pandemic had a comparatively small impact on the purchasing power of Premier League clubs compared to its European counterparts. This was partly evident in the summer mass sales at Inter Milan and Barcelona.
Thomas Partey’s arrival was triggered by the activation of his £ 45million release clause in 2020. It appears that from now on the Gunners intend to pursue great deals of this kind.
Her first chance to practice her new approach could hit a striker in January.
Both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah no longer have a contract at the end of the season. Therefore, the deals, which were discounted in January, would lead Arsenal to seek competition for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Big deal with Barcelona would warn of an impending Arsenal problem
Meanwhile, ex-Arsenal player Michael Thomas thinks the Gunners should join a world-class Barcelona star in January to avoid a major problem.
Central midfielder Thomas Partey is showing his strengths this season after being added to the top scorers’ list in the recent 3-1 win over Aston Villa. However, Arsenal will have to do without the 28-year-old when he represents Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations.
During an interview with Caught offside, Thomas made his judgment about who might step in to replace Partey.
“In terms of top priority, having a central midfielder is by far the club’s biggest business. We’re losing Partey to AFCON and it’s going to be a huge time for the club season.
“Renato Sanches is still someone Arsenal should watch out for in January. I would also like to have another right-back and winger.
