Wenger – ‘Newcastle Have Bought Quality’

8 years ago

At Arsene Wenger’s pre-Brighton cup-tie press conference this morning,as well as the usual stuff he was asked about Newcastle United’s January transfer activity so far.

As the clear top dog over the years when it comes to the French market, very interesting to hear his take on the players United have brought in;

“Newcastle have made good buys and done very well on the market.

You go for quality players, you don’t look very much where they come from.

I spoke about the core of English players (at Arsenal) because it is easier to keep them together, than if you have players from Spain or South America.

The most important thing is the quality of players and on that front Newcastle have done very well”.

While Newcastle still have to put the points on the board, it is encouraging to hear his take on our recent acquisitions.

It also suggests that Newcastle are looking in the right places in terms of players like rising star Florian Thauvin, Bastia now considering Newcastle’s 3m Euros bid, with the Corsican club’s President also confirming that Wenger had phoned him twice this week about the player but as yet hadn’t put any cash on the table.
