Arsenal sealed their place in the Champions League for next season tonight, thanks to London rivals West Ham’s win over Manchester United, so we thought we’d take a brief look into who could possibly aid us in the bid for Champions League glory next year.
Granit Xhaka is a name most Gunners will be accustomed to now, having been strongly linked with a move to us in recent months, and once again we are claimed to be close to a deal. Unfortunately this is not the first time we are supposedly close to completing his signature, but he certainly looks an exciting creative force, should we manage to sign him.
Ousmane Dembele is another player whose name has been doing the rounds, and with the 18 year-old having scored 12 league goals this season in Ligue 1, he also looks an exciting option. The striker has now claimed that he knows where he will play next season, but has remained tight-lipped, and my thoughts are that he could be staying in France…
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a player who should be in the sights of every top club in the world, having played a part in over 50 goals this term, but he is claimed to have sent family members house-hunting in London in recent months. Arsenal and Chelsea are of course the teams to follow such reports, and with him supposedly having failed to agree contract terms with Borussia Dortmund, he may well be the next big name to move to our beloved club.
Unfortunately the Armenian looks the perfect replacement for Alexis Sanchez, but I still do not wish to see the back of him. The Chilean star is supposedly refusing to confirm whether he wishes to stay with the club, and Wenger may be forced to sell him as he enters the final two years of his contract.
Would you accept his exit if Henrikh was confirmed as joining? All three arrivals could spell big things for Arsenal next season!
