I really can’t see this.
There are other players as good this season and last season and Wenger has never shown any interest or made an attempt to spend that sort of money.
He has never spent what it takes to get the best players.
Ozil and Sanchez were both players that the selling clubs didn’t want and although we were looking for a striker they were too good to turn down for the money that was being asked for them.
If Wenger was really that interested in Griezman, he could have had him last season for around 50m, so why didn’t he go for him then rather than waiting for his price to go up.
Wenger has never spent big on a striker, and if he spends more than half of the 80m being quoted for Griezman, I would be surprised.
I don’t think he was genuinely that interested, at that price, but he likes to be linked with big signings even though Welbeck is still his biggest signing for a striker, for about 16m.[quote=“ronniec, post:115, topic:451”]
I never doubt Wenger’s intention. He wants great player(s) and that’s for sure. But intention alone won’t get the deals done.
[/quote]His intention to get the best player at a price he wants to pay.
I don’t think he shows that much determination, to buy the best players at the price they are worth, instead he would rather do it on the cheap.
