Bingo.

I don't know one club that wouldn't try and screw over Wenger given the situation he has put us in and the time frame he has to work with.

Here's the conversation between Wenger and "whoever"...

Wenger: Hello, this is Arsène calling for your left back, cause our #1 guy just got injured yesterday
Whoever: Ah yes, well we can let go of player x, y, z for about 10M£
Wenger: WHAT !!! Last time we spoke, you were asking for 6M£ or 7M£ ?!?!?
Whoever: I'm hanging up in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...
Wenger: Ok, ok... 10M£ it is. Now fly him out here ASAP.
Whoever: done deal (with a smile in his voice)

And voilà, there you have it. The inside scoop on how Wenger does business.
