Gary Neville says Arsenal have actually done something very ‘sensible’ this January transfer window

Gary Neville has been speaking about the transfer window and believes Arsenal have done the right thing in not splashing out on a striker.

Despite being linked with the likes of Ivan Toney and more throughout January, Arsenal kept the cheque-book in the back pocket and resisted the need for a big signing.

Of course, everyone in football believes Arsenal need a number nine and Neville himself has said as much.

However, speaking on Sky Sports this morning, Neville has admitted that Arsenal have probably done the right thing in not over-paying for someone in what was a quiet January window in general.

Gary Neville gives his verdict on Arsenal’s January transfer window

Speaking about the window and Arsenal’s decision not to sign a striker, Neville said he believes the Gunners have done the right thing.

“I always think we can say it’s a bad window when clubs don’t sign players but I sometimes think it can be a good window when you don’t have players leave your club and you can have some stability. Sometimes players coming in during January can upset things anyway and destabilise the dressing room,” Neville said.

“Arsenal have been one of the main talking points over the last few months and them needing to bring in a striker, I think I have said it myself, that at the top of the league it’s pretty obvious there are games where you have watched Arsenal and for all their inventive great play they just don’t punish teams enough. But if that player is not available or if the player that is available is a huge price which means they will have to blow the wage bill then I think it’s sensible that the clubs haven’t done business.”

A big summer coming

It was sensible in the end for Arsenal not to go and get a forward who would cost them the world.

However, it does leave them in the same position heading into the summer and if they don’t win the league this season, then next year might actually feel like the last roll of the dice for the Gunners with Mikel Arteta in charge.

The Spaniard has been backed to the hilt in every window so far and if he fails to win again, then it can’t be too much longer before the board start thinking of something new.

The summer, then, could well be huge for the entire club and Arteta himself.
