Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has supposedly agreed personal terms with Arsenal, but how would the club’s first-team be effected?
The striker appears to be trying to force his way out of his club at present, and is supposedly close to joining the Gunners this week.
His arrival is claimed to be as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who is believed to be on his way to one of Chelsea, Manchester United or Man City in the coming days, and the Dortmund striker should go some way to replacing the hole left in our attacking threat.
Our team would likely undergo a change in system with the transfers above, with our formation currently accommodating only one striker, and current club record signing Alexandre Lacazette will surely keep his key role in the side.
You would imagine that our XI would be adapted to include two up top, possibly in a 4-3-1-2 formation, which would also play into accommodating both Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey with Granit Xhaka providing the extra metal which the pair lack.
Possible first-team XI:
Bellerin Koscielny Mustafi Maitland-Niles
Ramsey Xhaka Wilshere
The attacking pair may not have the best combination of abilities to form the ideal partnership, but there is the thought that the French striker may well be suited to playing alongside another attacker, and they could well be perfectly ideal at creating the necessary space for each other, and with Mesut Ozil and Wilshere behind doing the creating, the duo could become feared throughout the division.
Would the above XI be an improvement on our current team? Could PEA and Lacazette work well alongside each other?
