Ian Wright Passionately Points Out The 'Incompetence' In Arsenal's Transfer Dealings

Ian Wright Passionately Points Out The 'Incompetence' In Arsenal's Transfer Dealings
By Mikey Traynor

Even after watching Swansea claim a vital win at home to Everton in Saturday's late kick-off, Arsenal were the subject of discussion in the BT Sport studio.

With former Gunners strikers Ian Wright and John Hartson on hand for the analysis, both men were venting their frustrations with how their former club have managed to find themselves in such a position where the desire and mentality of the squad is questioned on a regular basis, but the two men differed when it comes to fixing things in the transfer market.

While John Hartson couldn't understand why Arsenal, and Wenger, were not actively looking to sign the likes of Antoine Griezmann so that the club could be seen to be going after the biggest names in football, Ian Wright was calling for a change behind the scenes, as when Arsenal have gone after big name targets in recent years, they have been left red-faced.

In particular, the delay in signing Mesut Ozil and the £40m + £1 situation with Luis Suarez irked the Highbury legend.

Dick Law, the man Wright wants to see leave the club, has been Arsenal's chief transfer negotiator over the past few years and reports in the media suggest that Mesut Ozil is refusing to discuss his contract negotiations with him.

It has been suggested that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season but as of yet nothing is confirmed.

Wright has a point, certainly about Arsenal not being an attractive option for top talents in their current state of uncertainty, but also in the manner in which they have handled the big transfers they did go after.


Regardless of whether or not Arsene Wenger stays, it's going to be a very interesting summer for Arsenal in the transfer market.
