With the Emirates building up to a home game against German side Bayer Leverkusen, some may had thought Michael Bowes would be on the training ground training the first team squad, that was far from the truth. In fact the Arsenal manager was scouting for potential new players to booster the squad. While trying to stop Bowes as he rushed around , Reporters caught him wearing a Harry Redknapp face mask while speaking through his car window. The young manager was asked why he went about his day like this, “I feel this is the best way to get deals done, clubs know I mean business. I mean who could turn down a possible deal with King Arry?”
With that in mind, Arsenal secured no fewer than 5 new players. Fierce rivals Tottenham aloud Eric Dier and Erik Lamela to move across London, both will need to hit the ground running to win over the fans I’m sure. With Ross Barkley arriving it aloud Mesut Ozil to speak to other clubs, Tottenham was the club to show a huge interest and managed to persuade the German to cross alliances. Next in was French international and the young sensation Anthony Martial, a deal which would see Theo Walcott and Francis Coqulein move to French side Monaco while young Allan Saint-Maximin move country with Martial. The final bit of business for Bowes would see him scout the Brazlian Paulo Henrique Ganso, it is believed Bowes is a big fan of the Brazilian and has high hopes he can adapt quickly to the Arsenal style. Arsenal veteran Mathieu Flamini travelled to São Paulo as part of the deal, something Mathieu seemed delighted about. “I’ve swapped a cold, wet windy life in London for the life in sun in Brazil, how could I not be happy? The manager showed no faith in me from the day he stepped in to the job, I’m just glad to be on the other side of the world to him. Gareth Crisp has welcomed me into his club with both hand and legs open and I couldn’t thank him enough”. Michael Bowes refused to comment regarding Flamini’s comments, it is also unclear to how Gareth persuaded Mathieu to join up with São Paulo but we’re not taking anything from the defensive midfielders comments.
