Everything You Need To Know About Arsenal Transfers In Five Words

There’s a lot of Arsenal transfer window chatter going around this month — a little more than usual. The Gunners are struggling in league play, were knocked out of the FA Cup and their two best players have contracts ending in a few months. 

But when it comes to all the rumors and speculation, five words are all you need to know about Arsenal in the transfer window: Arsene Wenger is still manager

Arsene Wenger Sits In Press Box For Boring Draw

Arsenal and Chelsea played to a 0-0 draw in the Carabao Cup semifinals Wednesday (marking the FOURTH time the two sides have drawn this season), and it was DEFINITELY a soccer game, that's for sure.

You know who didn't miss, though? Jack Wilshere! Welcome back, Jack!
