Alan Smith defends Arsenal’s quiet transfer window

Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith has launched a staunch defence of Manager Arsene Wenger’s decision not to spend the big bucks in the January transfer window and to largely stick with the same side that has brought the Gunners up to second place in the Premier League standings.

Smith shared in an interview today, “It is probably one of those transfer windows when I wouldn’t be fussed if nobody came in. The FA Cup game against Southampton was a good indication of the depth of the squad. Many of their rivals in the Premier League made wholesale changes in the cup and it came back to bite them.

“Danny Welbeck has come back in and is like a new signing, Lucas Perez is playing very well at the moment. Up top they have lots of choice and plenty of cover at the back.

“It is very difficult to add the right quality to that. The chemistry is good so I don’t see any need for any new arrivals,” Smith concluded.
