Arsenal shareholder and celebrity fan Piers Morgan has continued to criticise Arsene Wenger for his lack of transfer activity after the boss aimed to justify his decision by pointing towards Man United’s Anthony Martial deal.
What about Wenger’s ‘absolutely zero investment’? That’s far more outrageous. https://t.co/0K2vaQ8EAv

Wenger stated that the fee paid by Manchester United for a player with such little experience proved that there was little available on the market (via The Evening Standard).
However, Piers believes that Wenger’s inaction in the window – with the boss failing to sign a single outfield player all summer – deserves to be scrutinised.
I own a £160k stake in Arsenal, spend £8k on 4 season tickets a year, and blew £11k on a box yesterday. I think I'm allowed an opinion. #afc

Piers Morgan has repeatedly stated that the fact that he owns two shares in Arsenal, worth £160,000 between them, has given him the right to have an opinion on the club he supports.

Arsenal transfer news
Now the editor at MailOnline, he continues to voice his opinions on Twitter and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to disregard some of his views.
Wenger is making it very difficult for people to defend him when, as has been the case on a number of occasions, our lack of activity in the transfer window has almost effectively ended our title hopes.
