Arsenal can no longer win a trophy this season, and only need two points from their remaining two matches to confirm their place in the top four. This leaves very little to get overly excited about this season, so why not look to the next one!
This summer SHOULD be an active transfer window, with at least four senior squad members likely to leave the club. But who could be coming in to replace them?
We are claimed to have enquired about the potential availability of Denis Suarez, but he is said to be a target for Barcelona also. The Catalan giants only sold him last summer, and are claimed to have already said they will be triggering him buyback clause of £2.4 Million. The 22 year-old looks an exciting young player, but he likely dreams of making it with his former club…
Edin Dzeko is another name linked with our club, at least that is according to Turkish-Football.com. The striker’s contribution for Manchester City previously was seriously under-rated, and I would love to see him in our famous red shirt. Besiktas and Liverpool are also said to be interested, although there is still the chance he will stay with Roma beyond the summer.
Former Republic of Ireland youth international Ryan Sweeney is also being linked with a possible move to the Emirates. The 19 year-old is a 6 ft 4 inch centreback who is impressing in League Two, and is said to be under the watch of our scouts currently.
And last but certainly not least, Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan is claimed to be refusing to sign a new contract with his club as he seeks a new challenge. The Armenian record goalscorer has 23 goals for his club this season, as well as a HUGE 32 assists in 50 appearances. How could you say no to his arrival? Micky has only one year left on his current deal…
If reports prove to be true about Alexis wanting the leave the club, Henrikh could well be the perfect replacement. Could he even be an improvement?
