Arsenal CEO Vinai Venkatesham has spoken about Arsenal's plans for the January transfer window. Their goal is to find a player who can help the team become better. They are currently considering the options they have. "You will not be surprised to hear that I am not going to talk about individual players, but of course, we are in a transfer window at the moment.
In terms of the transfer window...
and what makes sense, it's always the same equation. Can we find a player that we think is really adding something to the squad? And can we find a player where we think the price of that player makes sense? When those two things make sense, then we'll make a move.
When something doesn't make sense, we need to be patient."- he said, as quoted by eurosport.com.
Edu Gaspar and Arsenal: Long term plan
Edu Gaspar is now in an interesting situation. Arsenal is playing great this season. They are at the top of the table and have a good chance of staying there.
They will need at least 1 or 2 players who can make a difference if there are injuries. "Edu Gaspar, our sporting director, has a long-term plan around how we want to strengthen our squad, and whenever a transfer window is open, there is an opportunity for us.
And, of course, when a transfer window is open, we're always looking for an opportunity that makes sense for us.
If an opportunity makes sense for us, we will do it. And January is no different from any other transfer window." Venkatesham does not want to worry too much about the future.
"We've had a great start to the season. We're only halfway through. We'll take each game as it comes, stay humble, and see what we can do. Try to win every game as we go." Arsenal must use the advantage they currently have.
