It’s been a rough month or so for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal Football Club. They returned from international break to resume the very young Premier League season in 16th place. The summer transfer window was a complete bust.

The #WengerOut pitchforks are back in full force, as the club is extremely fed up with club owner Stan Kroenke, the man they have deemed “silent Stan.”

And now Wenger has lost one of his key allies at the club, chief transfer negotiator Dick Law.

On the plus side, at least they took a 2-0 lead into halftime versus Bournemouth today.

Getting back to Law, the club confirmed Friday that the former scout and current transfer negotiator (although he has no official title at the club) will step down at the end of the month. He will be leaving the club due to “family reasons.”

Law was Arsenal’s chief scout in the Americas before taking on the full-time transfer specialist role in 2009. This is a huge loss for Wenger, as Law reportedly saw eye to eye with him on transfer policies, and he is a close ally for the Frenchman. As Wenger’s unpopularity rises, he needs to keep all the friends in the front office and board room that he was has.

What will Arsenal do to replace Law now?

According to The Telegraph: “It has not yet been decided whether Law will be replaced and the club appointed former Team Sky legal and commercial expert Huss Fahmy to work on player contracts in the summer.”
