Arsenal were supposed to challenge for the title this season after the summer reinforcements but guess nothing has changed.
Every campaign, Arsenal only play well in just one half of the season, the other is always inconsistent and the best Gunners achieve is Champions League qualification.
After winning the FA Cup last season, the fans thought that the jinx has ended but the rigid transfer policy is going to take the North Londoners nowhere as far as winning silverware is concerned.
No matter how stable they can be financially, the frustration of fans is inevitable if the results do not improve.
In the upcoming window, Gunners need a top defender as well a defensive midfield player but Wenger is renowned for not making big signings in winter.
Nevertheless, as always, reports do suggest that Arsenal are closing in to secure the signing of €40m Palermo striker Paulo Dybala.
As per the provided link, Gunners have lodged a bid of the above mentioned amount to secure Dybala who is also attracted by the prospect of playing for Arsenal as he claimed:
“I can’t deny that going to Arsenal would be great, but at the moment I’m a Palermo player.”
The 21 year old striker is in red hot form with the Serie A side. In 16 league appearances this season, Dybala has scored 7 goals and provided 6 assists.
