Arsenal begin to show teethAuthor: Ben Carso
With the news filtering out that Arsenal have shown profits for the year 2009 of over 30 million, brings much optimism for the fans and even management alike. With Arsenal possibly gaining another 3 points on Tuesday night to take them to second place and one point behind Premiership league leaders Chelsea, it looks very possible that Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager could have a bit of cash to spend this January on a striker and possibly even a defensive midfield player to keep things tighter over the last few months of the season. A striker would be the number one choice as they have been without Van Persie for numerous months now and possibly for the rest of the season. They have Nicholas Brendtner but he is also currently injured albeit only until Friday so a striker of some quality will remain their main priority. The fact that Arsenal is only one of a handfull of teams to actually make a profit in 2009 could mean that they will look to spend well in the summer although Wenger will always go for who he sees as having potential rather than just a big household name that usually turn out to be flops. The best online bookmakers currently have Arsenal as 3/1 for the Premiership title compared to 25/1 when they lost to Chelsea at home two months ago. One would hope the wiser of you may have backed them at the better price as they look for their first trophy in four long years at the Emirates stadium.About the Author:
