Lethal Bizzle at Emirates Stadium with FA Cup (above)
British rapper Lethal Bizzle is an outspoken Arsenal fan and earlier criticised Arsene Wenger for his failure to sign an outfield player during the 2015 summer transfer window.
The Gunners were reportedly interested in Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani. However, goalkeeper Petr Cech was the only player to arrive at the Emirates in the off-season.
Supporters were left further disillusioned at Arsenal’s failure to sign a striker after news emerged that Danny Welbeck will be out for a period of months after undergoing keyhole knee surgery.
Lethal Bizzle told talkSPORT.
“I don’t know what Wenger’s playing at, he’s very stubborn.
“I just think if we really want to challenge for the title he needs to pull his finger out and adapt to the whole wage system.
“If we want something quality, we’re going to have to pay 30, 40 or £50million to get a top player in. I think he’s so stuck in his ways and he’s so reluctant to do that. Until we manage to do that, we’re way off the title, Chelsea are the champions and they’ve strengthened.
“I thought with Cech, he’s actually going for it now and I thought he was going to nick Karim Benzema. Didn’t happen. And then take at least a defensive midfielder. Didn’t happen. We definitely needed a centre-back. Still hasn’t happened.
“I don’t know if he sees something we don’t because he always does pull off miracles, we have over-achieved quite a few times and we always make the Champions League.
“But I don’t think the team is strong enough to challenge for the title this season.
“We’re way off and I think we’ll be lucky to get fourth this year. It’s inevitable we’ll get injuries – that’s football. January is the most panic-buying window so I don’t know if we’ll manage to get anyone by then. It’s a real shame. I think Arsene Wenger could be counting his days.”
