Arsenal CEO Vinai Venkatesham ‘defends lack of January transfer’

Arsenal CEO Vinai Venkatesham is said to be comfortable with the club’s lack of transfer activity during the January window.

Last month, as many as six first-team players, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, were permitted to leave the Emirates Stadium with no replacements being brought in.

While this has inevitably enraged fans, Venkatesham has defended his choice not to add any new players to the squad at this juncture in the season.

Arsenal CEO Vinai Venkatesham was claimed to have planned to recruit new players until ‘none of the possibilities made sense,’ according to a fan present at a fans’ forum on Wednesday evening.

Arsenal are expected to make substantial acquisitions during the summer transfer season, according to Venkatesham.

Arsenal is now in sixth place in the Premier League, four points behind the Champions League places but with numerous games yet to play.

Arsenal is now in sixth place, although they have three games in hand over Manchester United and West Ham, who are fourth and fifth in the table, respectively.

Mikel Arteta’s side put in one of their best performances of the season away to Wolves, holding on with 10 men after Gabriel Martinelli’s shocking dismissal to secure victory at Molineux.

Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, and Manchester United all lost points in their respective matches during the weekend, but Arsenal were given a respite courtesy to Chelsea’s Club World Cup commitments.

However, Arsenal’s season should be deemed a failure, according to Thierry Henry, if they fail to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

‘For me, if they don’t do it, as I said at the start of the season, then it will be a failure,’ he said.

Henry emphasized the significance of Arsenal’s’massive’ win over Wolves, claiming that his old club was now in the driver’s seat for the final Champions League qualifying spot.
