Journalist gives interesting updates on Arsenal and transfer window


David Ornstein of The Athletic suggests that Arsenal might make a “reactive” purchase. That is before the end of January transfer window.

In the summer transfer window, The Gunners made substantial investments. Thus, spending approximately £200m to secure the services of players such as Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, and David Raya.

Following a promising beginning to the season, Arsenal has experienced a decline in form. Hence, prompting Mikel Arteta’s team to actively seek new signings to rejuvenate their campaign.

After securing only one victory in their last seven matches across all competitions, Arsenal has slipped to the fourth position in the Premier League standings.

What did journalist Ornstein say about Arsenal?

There have been reports linking Arteta’s squad with players such as Ivan Toney, Dominic Solanke, and Dusan Vlahovic. However, David Ornstein suggests that it wouldn’t be surprising if Arsenal opts for a “reactive” move. That is by the end of this month’s transfer window.

David Ornstein said: “It wouldn’t surprise me if they ended up doing something reactive towards the end of the window. Purely because they are always attentive to the market, they are short in places and we can never say never in this industry.

“But as I have consistently reported, Arsenal financial position dictated that this was expected to be a quiet window. And still to this point I am not aware of anything meaningful developing yet.

“Arsenal really need to get their existing players, who are proven to deliver the results the club wants to rediscover their best form. That seems to be a bigger issue right now than recruitment.”

Whatever Ornstein says is indeed concerning if Arsenal does want to get to the top of the league really soon. The club currently sit 4th on the league standings.
