Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tim Sherwood has berated Arsenal over their transfer policy after the Gunners failed to address their much publicized defensive issues during the winter transfer window.
The Premier League (PL) legend slammed the Gunners for their flawed transfer policy while he was on popular English media channel Sky Sports.
Arsenal were restricted to loan signings during the just concluded transfer window due to lack of funds caused by financial fair play restrictions.
In the end, the Gunners sealed the transfer of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez on loan until the end of the season with the option to sign the Spaniard after his loan spell in the summer.
Denis Suarez made his debut on Sunday evening as he came off the bench as a second-half substitute against Premier League champions Manchester City.
The 25-year-old could not prevent the Gunners from falling to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Citizens.
Premier League legend Tim Sherwood won the league title with Blackburn Rovers during the 1994/95 season and he knows a thing or two about the English top flight.
He’s adamant that the Gunners were in need of defensive signings during the winter transfer window and that the Denis Suarez transfer was not required.
