Arsenal Are Signing Players Nobody Else Needs, Says Arsenal Legend

Arsenal legend, Paul Merson.

Few football pundits speak their mind like Arsenal legend Paul Merson.With less than a week before the transfer window in England is slammed shut,Arsenal so far are leading the way in terms of money spent.This has led to growing frustration among Arsenal fans due to their poor start to the season.

Merson wonders whether it is Edu bringing in players for Arteta or it is Arteta choosing players that can suit his style of play.He says there is a lot going on behind the scenes in the recruitment department that fans cannot see but has a negative effect on Arsenal's transfers.

He had this to say:"Arsenal are playing it safe and lack vision in the market.It seems we are signing players nobody else is after.When was the last time they beat another club to a big signing?Long time ago.Look at the Odegaard signing,he went back to Real Madrid after his loan spell and wanted to play for them not Arsenal.But then Madrid rejected him.He then comes back to Arsenal well knowing he will be playing every week and earn big money.

To me Paul Merson has given me a second thought even after being happy about the players Arsenal have signed so far.If they are that good who else wanted them?Let me know your thoughts about Merson's honest opinion.
