Thierry Henry comments on Arsenal’s search for next signing
Thierry Henry admits his concerns about Arsenal's business in the summer transfer window thus far
Thierry Henry admits that he has been worried by Arsenal’s transfer business in the summer window so far.
The Gunners tabled a bid for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy back in May but the forward opted to sign a new contract with the Foxes and stay at the King Power Stadium.
Arsenal have also been linked with a host of other players in recent weeks as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad before the end of the month.
The north London side have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka, defender Rob Holding and young striker Takuma Asano.
Arsenal are thought to be on the lookout for further reinforcements before the close of the current transfer window.
However, Arsenal legend Henry admits that he was concerned to see Vardy turn down the chance to move to The Emirates.
Writing in his column for The Sun, former striker Henry said: “Arsene Wenger has tried to match his title rivals in the transfer market this summer but has not yet been able to sign the striker and defender he needs.
“As a Gunners fan, it worried me when Jamie Vardy rejected a move to the Emirates to stay with Leicester.
“I respect Vardy’s decision but I wonder if he would have turned down United or City.
“Arsenal have to start taking risks in the market or they will end up with no one.”
Arsenal finished second in the Premier League table last season, 10 points behind surprise champions Leicester City.
