Arsenal have agreed a deal to keep Arsene Wenger at the club until 2019, and he is now tasked with building a squad worthy of challenging for the Premier League title.
The board are believed to have demanded he work fast and hard early in the window to assure we are not forced to scrap for players late as we were last season, and a number of players are expected to join.
Alexandre Lacazette has been linked with a move to various top clubs in recent seasons, but has come out to officially reveal he will be switching clubs this summer. Atletico Madrid were supposedly leading the race for his signature, but have since been ruled out of the chase, due to a transfer ban. This leaves the Premier League as his most likely destination, and the world knows we are lacking a top class striker in our ranks.
Onyekuru looks near-certain to be joining our club to bolster our attacking options, but his age and experience doesn’t fill our need for a ready-made star. We look set to sign him, with his club Eupen holding out for only £7.85 Million, and it remains to be seen whether he will stay with the squad or be loaned out initially.
Liverpool are priced up as favourites to land Arsenal duo Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who are both entering the final 12 months of their contracts. The duo have played key roles in our new 3-4-2-1 formation since the successful switch, and should be kept at all costs, but until new contracts are signed, the cloud of doubt remains over the pair.
Could we land Lacazette? Would you allow the Ox or Ramsey leave for Liverpool?
