Premier League legend Rio Ferdinand has questioned the lack of transfer activity at Arsenal in the current January transfer window.
The former Manchester United defender criticised Arsenal and their transfer dealings while he was doing his punditry work at BT Sport via the Daily Express.
Rio Ferdinand is certain that the Arsenal squad is crying out for new players and he’s shocked by the admission from club officials that only loan signings will be made this month.
Arsenal fans have joined various football pundits in criticising the club after it was revealed that the Gunners don’t have funds for permanent transfers in the current transfer window.
In one of his pre-match press conferences this month, Gunners boss Unai Emery confirmed that Arsenal won’t be able to sign players permanently in the current transfer window.
Arsenal could still sign players with various media reports claiming that the Gunners are close to signing Denis Suarez from Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona.
The Daily Mirror claim that Arsenal are hoping they can agree on a loan deal worth £1.7m for him to join the club for the remainder of the season with the option of making the transfer a permanent one for £17.5m in the summer.
