Bangkok Post - - OPINION - James Mor­ri­son

Ar­se­nal man­ager Arsene Wenger backed the Premier League’s de­ci­sion to close the trans­fer win­dow be­fore the new sea­son starts.

How long the trans­fer win­dow is prob­a­bly is ir­rel­e­vant to Ar­se­nal’s busi­ness — they would re­main same old Ar­se­nal.

The lat­est trans­fer mar­ket, which closed at the end of last month, saw Ar­se­nal get only one ma­jor sign­ing in France striker Alexan­dre La­cazette.

In­deed, La­cazette is at Emi­rates Sta­dium only be­cause he could not join Atletico Madrid who are banned from buy­ing play­ers. Changes are needed at Ar­se­nal for them to be­come gen­uine con­tenders again.
