 Garry Neville reveals why Arsenal didn’t sign a defender in January

Garry Neville claims Arsenal did not sign a defender in January because of hike in transfer fees.

“We asked this week: Are we surprised that Arsenal didn’t bring in a defender? But the problem is, they can’t get the players available. They cannot get them. Honestly, it’s a real issue,” the United legend said on Sky Sports.

“Clubs are not letting go for normal prices, and clubs are now thinking: Do I go and pay over the odds in January? Am I going to get the player I want?

“I genuinely believed Arsenal would have strengthened more than they have done if they believed something was available.”
