Are Arsenal the new Everton? | Football Trending

Wayne Farry

What does a signing say about a football club?

When Manchester United’s search for a solution to their striker problem ended with Shanghai Shenhua forward Odion Ighalo, the response was mixed at best.

Ighalo had performed admirably during his time in English football with Watford and was rewarded with a lucrative offer from the Chinese Super League.

That was, most people assumed, the end of his serious football career. But now he’s at Manchester United, and he will be tasked with getting on the end of the chances that his new manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, believes his side make.

On the latest episode of Football Trending, host Rocket Long is joined by Wayne Farry, Reuben Pinder and Kyle Picknell to discuss Ighalo’s transfer, Olivier Giroud and the other missed opportunities of the January 2020 transfer window, as well as dissecting Arsenal’s woes to determine whether they are the new Everton.
