Wenger predicts a quiet summer – Is he just winding us up?

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has sent out a pretty grim message out to every fan the club has, saying that there won’t be much happening on the transfer market this summer.

Wenger was asked whether Chamakh will stay or leave in the summer, but according to the Frenchman the rumours linking him with Lazio, Bordeaux, Sevilla and a few other clubs haven’t turned into anything concrete yet and the situation is still pretty much in the air.

“Chamakh did well against Stoke,” Wenger said. “Nothing is definite at the moment. At the end of the season there won’t be a lot of movement in football.”

If Arsenal won’t be active on the transfer market it’s hard to see how they can compete for any trophy next season even if they did sign Podolski or not. Furthermore, players like Chamakh, Almunia, Bendtner and Squillaci must leave because they’re purely dead wood and now that the club must limit to 25 players, it’s tough to still keep them and also find a few top quality ones who can join.

we all know that Wenger rarely tells the truth when it comes to his transfer dealings, but what do you think he will eventually choose to do? Will Arsenal finally have a say next season in the trophy fight?
