Merson – This signing would’ve won the title for Arsenal by now
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has once again questioned the decision-making of Arsene Wenger in the transfer market.
The Gunners have now gone 13 years without winning the Premier League title, securing only three major trophies in that period.
Wenger is known for being reluctant to spend heavily on transfers, even when his team is in desperate need of strengthening.
And according to Merson, Arsenal’s title drought would not have continued, had the signing of a high-profile striker been completed.
“When [Real Madrid striker Karim] Benzema had a chance to come in and he says, ‘What do I need Benzema for, I’ve got [Olivier] Giroud?’ Don’t say that, just put in a bid,” Merson said
“You know, [they offered Liverpool] £40m-and-a-pound for Suarez. Bid £60m. Arsenal would have won the league by now.
“There’s an arrogance at Arsenal at the moment, and the arrogance isn’t helping at all.
“The fans are fighting each other and people up above couldn’t care less.”
