Arsenal need to take swift, decisive action in the transfer market after their 8-2 defeat to Manchester United but it will be very difficult for Arsene Wenger to sign the players he needs to drag his side out of this slump.
What player of any note is going to want to go to Arsenal? Yes, they are in the Champions League group stage but can we really believe that they are going to get through to the latter stages?
As a top-class player you do not want to join a side that is focused on producing kids, you want to join a club to win medals, to go down in history. Trophies come first, and at present Arsenal do not look like a club capable of challenging for them.
