Arsene Wenger has, in my opinion, already got two very good bits of transfer business done for Arsenal this summer. And if the Arsenal transfer rumours are correct his next signing could actually make the Gunners a strong favourite to win the English Premier League title next May.
The Frenchman beat off a number of rival clubs to secure the free transfer of the highly rated and versatile Bosnian international defender Sead Kolasinac and that has not been shouted about too much, perhaps because the primarily left sided player cost the club nothing but his wages (which are pretty steep at well over £100,000 a week) and because he he is still young and has been playing for a not particularly big club in Germany.
I think he could prove to be a great addition though, with pace, aggression and technical ability in at least three different positions on the pitch. We all know what Alexandre Lacazette will bring to the team, or at least what we hope he will, and that is penetration, pace and lots of goals.
Now if we can add even more guile as well as a proven ability to thrive in the EPL, with Metro reporting that Riyad Mahrez is set to be the third Arsenal signing, it will give the squad a fearsome array of firepower and creative ability and perhaps more importantly it will give the manager a lot of options for when the inevitable injury problems kick in.
Would signing Mahrez complete the Arsenal squad, assuming we do not then lose Alexis and Ozil, or would you like to see Wenger strengthen in other areas?
