Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal contributed to some of the transfer deals on the final day of the window.
Jamie O’Hara has claimed that Arsenal had ‘the better transfer window’ than their rivals Tottenham, as he also admitted that he’s ‘not so sure’ if Ryan Sessegnon is ready.
But the former Premier League midfielder backed Spurs to finish higher than Unai Emery’s side ahead of the forthcoming campaign.
Arsenal’s most-talked-about transfer on deadline day was the capture of Chelsea’s David Luiz, whilst their neighbours added Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon to their books.
Speaking to Sky Sports News (08/09/2019 at 8:35 pm), O’Hara shared his thoughts on Tottenham and Arsenal’s transfer window, as his comments may just make fans fume.
“I think Arsenal have had a great window,” O’Hara told Sky Sports News. “I think Spurs have been solid, they have signed good players. Ndombele, I think has been a great signing. Sessegnon, I’m not so sure he’s ready to come in and start every week.
“I think Arsenal have had the better window in terms of they have addressed where they needed to improve. But in terms of the team finishing higher? I am still going to go for my team Spurs. I think they have got a better squad overall.”
How the new recruits will fare will be found out as quick as this weekend because both sets of fans will get a glimpse of their new signings.
However, they won’t know the full extent of the impact, whether positive or negative, these players will have until the season draws to its conclusion in May.
The minimum requirement for both London clubs will be to finish in the top-four, whilst they will also be searching for a trophy, whether it be a domestic one or in Europe.
