The humiliating defeat made Arsenal fans to ask for a change. In order to act in that direction, Arsene Wenger began the process of rebuilding Arsenal’s shattered defence after swooping for Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos.
Beside the defence, the Gunners strengthened the strike force too, by completing the signing of Park Chu Young from AS Monaco.
“I am very honored and I feel very happy to be at Arsenal. It is a dream to be here. Now I just want to show how good I am and prove myself.” said the No.9 shirt, Park.
After that unforgettable loss against Manchester and the imminent closure of the transfer window made Arsene Wenger to accelerate his late-summer recruitment session.
Werder Bremen and Germany’s defender, Per Mertesacker, flew to London to have a medical exam after being given permission by both club and country. Arsenal’s officials are confident that they will seal the deal, with a receipt of 8 million pounds for the 26-years-old player. Beside the German player, they bought the Brazil left-back Andre Santos from Fenerbahce for 6.2 million pounds.
Everybody from Arsenal hope that the sun will shine on their street soon.
