Yeah, yeah, Arsenal won the F.A Cup... again, which is good for them. But this is still a team that has either Nacho Monreal or Kieran Gibbs at left back (decisions, decisions). This is a team that's paying Theo Walcott and his spray-painted beard £140,000 a week to do whatever it is that Theo Walcott does. This is a team that's still trying to make Aaron Ramsey a thing (he isn't). A team that's going to have to watch Alexis Sanchez walk away from it all.
This is a team in trouble, basically. Which is why Arsene Wenger is dusting off the old war chest and, according to The Telegraph, bidding £87 million for Kylian Mbappe, the most-exciting striker in the world right now.
Despite the enormity of their bid, Monaco apparently have no intention to sell a striker who scored 15 league goals last year, having already turned down a reported £105 million offer from Real Madrid; while United, City and Bayern Munich are all watching from the sidelines with bids ready to go.
Wenger had hoped the promise of first team football could be a defining factor in Arsenal's approach, but, as it stands, it looks like they'll be left waiting.
In other news, Mesut Ozil is apparently ready to sign a new £280,000 a week contract, which is quite a lot of money, isn't it?
