On Thursday, it was announced that the Gunners had signed Chelsea defender John Terry for a fee of £30 million, as reported by The Independent.
A couple of days earlier, Arsenal had confirmed that they had completed a £17 million deal with Sporting Lisbon for Spanish defender David Silva, as well as the signing of Chelsea striker Eden Hazard.
Chelsea had also been linked with a move for the 24-year-old Spanish midfielder, who is currently playing in the Premier League.
With Chelsea in the market for new players, Arsenal fans had hoped that Terry would be a piece of the puzzle.
Unfortunately for fans of Chelsea, Terry’s signing is a massive disappointment for Arsene Wenger.
The move will see Terry left out of the first XI for Saturday’s clash with Arsenal, and he will now be replaced by Bacary Sagna, who was also linked with the Gunner earlier in the summer.
This move has left Arsenal fans in disbelief, as the club did not have the money to match the fee the Blues were asking for.
Arsene’s reaction on Twitter, when he heard the news, was even more frustrating: The news is a disaster for us and we will now have to look at another way of spending our money.
However, the problem for Arsenal fans is that their team is playing badly, and Terry has not been able to help them out.
The news of the Terry transfer is a major blow to Arsenal’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season, which is why the club had hoped to sign him for a fraction of the cost.
It also puts the spotlight on Arsene, as it shows that the English manager is still not at the top of his game, despite having been in charge for a few years.
While the decision to sign Terry has led to a massive boost for Arsenal, it will also cost Arsenal fans.
The Gunners will have to spend money on the transfer market to get the best out of him, and it is not always a great way to spend your money.
If Arsenal are going to get to the Champions league, they will need to spend it on players that are good enough to win it.
For many fans, the transfer fee is the end of the story.
Terry was a star player at Chelsea and they were looking to bring him back to Stamford Bridge, but the Blues decided to wait until January to make a move.
With the Premier’s top four teams now being in the hunt for the Premier Cup, Chelsea are in a much stronger position to make their move, and that is why they signed the 26-year old.
As a result, Arsenal will be disappointed to see Terry go.
If he were to return to Chelsea, he would not be a big loss for Arsenal.
However the signing will also make it much harder for Arsène Wenger to make the transfer he wanted to make for his team.
The transfer fee was high, but it was the quality of players that made it possible.
It will not be long before Arsenal fans can start questioning Wenger’s decision to sell Terry.
