Finally some good news coming out for Arsenal supporters. According to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, Emery will have enough money to spend in the summer transfer window for players.
Unai Emery earlier had admitted that the club cannot afford any permanent deals at the moment during the press conference before the West Ham match. As a result of which they are currently in pursuit of loan deals in January with both Denis Suarez and James Rodriguez reportedly on their radar.
Hearing this startling revelation, Arsenal fans went into absolute meltdown and hashtags with “kroenke out” started spreading like wild fire all over the internet. Certainly its not Arsenal fans here who are to blame given that after their early season 22-match unbeaten streak, Arsenal’s recent form is no where close to presentable and certainly not what you would expect from a club like Arsenal. Their last one in the table was their away defeat against West Ham United.
Arsenal have splurged big in previous transfer windows, bringing in the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, as well as presenting Mesut Ozil with a massive wage packet.
Along with confirming what is already know Guillem Balague revealed that Emery wouldn’t be able to spend money for permanent deals in January, but he will get his opportunity in the summer transfer window to strengthen the current underperforming squad.
“Arsenal spent a lot of money in the summer and the last winter market with [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and spent a lot of money of three players in terms of wages, Aubameyang, [Mesut] Ozil and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan,” Guillem Balague told the GB Transfer Podcast.
“So the position was clear for this one that they would have to try and fill the holes, not the centre-back hole unless a bargain appears in the market.”
“In the summer, the good news for Arsenal fans is that there will be money.”
“In terms of players linked to Arsenal or Arsenal players, Ramsey, we all think that he’s made a decision and it is Juventus.”
“His decision was between Juventus and another team, when all the teams have come to Ramsey and said ‘I want a second chance to try and convince you’ they said ‘no, no, no it’s already done.“
Emery cannot expect the same kind of financial support from the Arsenal, that he had previously received from the PSG board in terms of transfers. With losses coming left and right, Emery is under a lot of intense criticism. Fans have already started to question his tactical decisions and players selection.

The mysterious Ozil-Emery saga also has been a massive cause for concern for the supporters as Emery once again excluded the German from the squad against West Ham and the starting XI against Chelsea. So the highest paid player in your team can’t even make up to the bench? As Ramsey is nearing an exit from Emirates, which was also basically confirmed by Guillem Balague, Arsenal certainly cannot afford to lose Ozil too.
Injuries also played a big part in recent performance of the Gunners. Holding, Welbeck and Mkhitaryan are all out with long term injuries and the most recent addition to the physio’s room is Hector Bellerin who is also reportedly sidelined with a massive long term injury.
Fans expected Arsenal board to make some significant additions in the January considering the error-prone defence and non-creative midfield. But now according to Guillem Balague they have to wait till summer.
Manchester United are closing down the gap between them and Arsenal. Arsenal are still ahead thanks to the goal difference. Red Devils are on terrific form with a six match winning streak under Ole. Emery must do something efficient and something fast if he wants to maintain the position and harbour any hopes of Arsenal finishing in the top four.
