Arsenal Transfer News: Pjanic, Benzema, Dzeko

Most mock Arsenal for their transfer policy. Usually the Gunners sit back, miss out on the big names and suffer the consequences with a finish in the English Premier League between second and fourth. It’s nothing to bat an eye at though. Arsenal reached the Champions League for an 18th straight season despite the frugal policy. Most of the lack of spending can be attributed to the brilliant scouting the club – led by Arsene Wenger – has done. That changed in 2014 when Arsenal spent $130 million on players. The highlight of that list was Alexis Sanchez, who proved to be one of the best players in the country. Will the change in approach continue this summer? Thus far, goalie Petr Cech is the lone player to make the move to the Emirates. Cech, 33, signed for about $15 million and will supplant Wojciech Szczesny as the club’s No. 1. With Szczesny on the way out, which other players will Arsenal target in the transfer window? The season begins August 2 with the FA Community Shield, with the window closing August 31.
