Nat Coombs, Greg Stobart and Peter Staunton discuss the major talking points from the summer market, with Samuel Eto’o also among those likely to secure an exit from Russia
Is there a greater juxtaposition in the upper echelon of European football at present than in north London?
Arsenal, soured by a shock 3-1 opening day home defeat to Aston Villa, are STILL yet to take serious inroads in the transfer market, while rivals Tottenham are set to break their transfer record for the third time this summer! Their focus, Willian, is the latest name in the exodus from Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala.
Anzhi, of course, are facing a serious period of transition. Owner Suleiman Kerimov, having given up on his ideology of forging a team of globetrotting all-stars, is in the process of carving $100 million (£63.8m) off the annual budget. Samuel Eto’o, a Champions League winner with Inter and Barcelona, is set to follow Willian before the window closes.
Nat Coombs returns alongside Goal correspondent Greg Stobart and international football writer Peter Staunton.
