This is another annual look at the Arsenal squad and how the squad limits will affect the transfer season. Arsenal can only suit up 25 senior players, so where's the hope in thinking we'll buy 6-7 players unless we have 6-7 slots?
Locks (in my eyes at least)
Maybe stay, maybe go out on loan
Damian Martinez (HG)
Viviano (Returned to Palermo)
Daniel Boatang (released)
Sagna (Man City)
Players we would have to register in 15/16
Chuks Aneke (released)
Wellington Silva (Loan in Spain)
So I think we have
17 20 locks, 6 of which are HG players. That leaves us 6 3 free players to buy and 2 HG players. I have a feeling that Martinez makes the team as the 3rd GK, so we would still have 7 4 spaces available ( 6 3 free players). Obviously these numbers could change if people fall out of any of the categories I made above. Looking at those lists, we are very short in regards to the defense and GK.
Happy Transfer Rumoring!
