Arsenal chief Ivan Gazidis says the “dynamic” of the Premier League has changed.

Gazidis admits in the past the Premier League big boys would have been able to force smaller English clubs into making deals because of the money on offer.

But the told the New York Times: “In the past, the big clubs could financially bully the smaller clubs — it would be unthinkable that a smaller club would be able to hold on to its best player if Manchester United or Arsenal came knocking at the door.

“That dynamic is changing.

“And so the constraints within the Premier League are less and less about pure finances, and more and more relatively important become things like how well you identify players, how well you develop players, what kind of sports science you have, your analytics, your psychology.

“All of these support areas around what we do increasingly become bigger differentiators, because the money is not enough to blast the best talent toward you.”

    That all we keep hearing year after year Wenger has identified more than 90 player in the past years with up to 90% of them agreeing deals with other clubs, the clubs that are ready to win the title are done with transfers by now waiting and keeping tracks of players isn’t a good strategy for the team. Wenger has failed us again like every other year we are always hoping and hopin until the last min and transfers are done in a rush. The good and better players have been signed already
