Premier League

Former Arsenal star offers solution to the mounting gunners problems.

With a week left to go in the transfer window, former Arsenal star defender Bacary Sagna believes that the gunners do still have time to bring in marquee signings to save them from tragic downfall.

Speaking to former Gunner Emmanuel Petit on RMC sport via the Daily Mail cannon,Sagna shared his profound disappointment on the gunners transfer policy which does not promise instant results.

"How can you spent £129m and only bring in young players? It might be good for the future,but someone has got to think about the present."

The Frenchman continued by explaining that any player would be interested in moving to the gunners back then but things have changed and the DNA is lost. Consequently,less players are now excited about the prospect of joining the club.

After finishing eighth in the Premier league in each of their last two seasons, Mikel Arteta's side has yet again continued the trail of poor results after losing in their two opening matches in consecutive 2-0 to Brentford and Chelsea respectively. Sagna has therefore stressed that experienced and players of character with winning mentality is what Arsenal desperately needs.

The signing of Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga,Ben White,Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale is good for the future but for the sake of instant delivery,experienced players is what the gunners need.

Apparently, Sagna's sentiments are far from Arteta as a manager criticising transfer policy as the main cause of the gunners problems.The same view was aired by Arsenal legend Ian Wright, during Pl analysis,who stressed that it might be Arsenal players who are not following the manager's instructions and that's not Mikel's fault .

Do you think Sagna's sentiments and are his suggestions solution to the problem?
