The Premier League transfer market and Arsene Wenger's possible departure

Saturday 21st January 2017
Arsene Wenger's investment into young players is something he is known for. Arsene has made it a pivotal point at his club to include youngsters into his setup, caring about their development and potential to help him in his past and future title bids.

Arsene's announcement back in 2015 -

"I am resolute to commit absolutely until the last day of my contract to bring back big success to this club, and leave as well one day in a position where it can do even better when I leave."

Whether Arsene leaves in 2017 is still up for debate as his decision could come in April. The Frenchman will most definitely be considering things at this point in time, as he weighs up his and the club's future - so let's wait and see.

It's a fierce face-off between Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund who both have their eyes on the flourishing talent of Kasper Dolberg. Ok, so I haven't seen this supposedly young talent play but I hear good things. The scouts are out from other European teams, such as Manchester City and Everton, so there is quite the competition for his signature.

Feghouli keeps his respect intact by stating his desire to see out his contract. Top bloke. Even with Roma projecting their interest it seems the winger will stay in London. I know the fans will respect that.

Asmir Begovic is being hunted by Bournemouth and could be leaving if the price is right. The 10 million pound offer was rejected, and negotiations are definitely in play. Conte did say this -

"He is a really important player for me. There is an offer... but it's important to find the right solution for us and Asmir." 

Jose Mourinho has sold Memphis Depay, who never stood a chance at staying for the price of £22 million.It seems that Manchester United have too many wide players as stated by Jose and this could mean more players could be on their way out to lessen the competition.

  • I swear he let go of Morgan Schneiderlin? To answer my own question, 'yep, he did.' He keeps it simple by telling players 'they may leave if they want to.'

"It wouldn't have been human to prevent Morgan and Memphis leaving. If there are other unhappy players who want to go, I won't stand in their way." Typically straight to the point talk from the manager.

Aston Villa sign midfielder Henri Lansbury for 3 million. It's a smart move as they could use the boost this season in that area.

Moyes looks down - trodden, to say the least, and his budget to bolster his team looks grim. Let's hope something/someone can come his way.

Gabriel Jesus, 'all hail Jesus!' has arrived, but Manchester City still must tie up a few loose ends.

All in all, a pretty busy market so far.
