David Seaman sends ‘sad’ message to Arsenal supporters about summer transfers
The Arsenal legend is disappointed to see the Gunners lose a key player in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with more potential exits on the horizon
David Seaman admits he is worried to see Arsenal’s best players leave the north London club in the summer transfer window.
The Gunners agreed £40m deals with both Premier League champions Chelsea and Liverpool for the sale of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain earlier this week.
The 24-year-old opted to sign a long-term contract with Liverpool on transfer deadline day to finalise a move to the Merseyside outfit.
Oxlade-Chamberlain had entered the final 12 months of his Arsenal deal to throw up the possibility of the midfielder leaving for nothing next summer.
The north London side are also facing a battle to keep hold of Chile international Alexis Sanchez as Manchester City look to sign the proven 28-year-old forward.
Germany international Shkodran Mustafi has also been linked with a move to Serie A giants Inter Milan despite the centre-half moving to The Emirates last summer.
The Gunners have already made a disappointing start to the Premier League season following back-to-back defeats.
Arsenal lost 1-0 to Stoke City at bet365 Stadium before Liverpool were 4-0 winners against Arsene Wenger’s side at Anfield last weekend.
Former goalkeeper Seaman admitted that he is worried to see key players linked with a move away from Arsenal.
“I can’t believe what’s going on. Going back to the times when we’re selling our best players, it’s saddening,” Seaman told talkSPORT.
“The Ox going to Liverpool, it’s a bit of a shock after what I saw Arsene saying about building a team around him and things like that.”
