Super-Agent: ‘Arsenal boss scared to spend money’

Big bucks agent Mino Raiola claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is scared to spend big money.

The Gunners spent around £89 Million to bring in four players this summer, including £30 Million+ deals to sign Shkodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka.

Will strong performance at Forest get Xhaka into Arsenal XI?

One of the big questions on the lips of Arsenal fans before the Premier League win over Hull City this weekend was whether Arsene Wenger would hand the big money summer signing Granit Xhaka his third start of the season or leave him on the bench for the third match in a row.

Poll: Which Arsenal star deserves to lead our attack

Our team is nearly complete, although voting remains open for each of the positions, but we still need to choose which Arsenal forward should be leading the line.

Lucas Perez arrived to bring competition to the role this summer in a £17 Million deal, and arrives with an impressive record from his previous season with Deportivo La Coruna, but he may take time to adjust to life in England.

Poll: Which trio do you trust most behind the Arsenal striker?

We are building a fans favourite XI based on the current Arsenal formation, and we move onto the three behind the favoured striker now.

Many of you will no doubt opt to field both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, although the former will be in the voting as a striker also. Unfortunately we don’t have two of him, and he will only be given the one place in our fans favourite XI.

Poll: Pick your perfect Arsenal CM partnership

The midfield is one of the most important positions in the modern game, with possession and the ability to turn defence into attack a huge factor.

The base of the midfield is probably the most crucial selection for us, with different tactics being used for different opponents, but which pair should play in the majority of matches.

Poll: Pick your Arsenal centre-back pairing

We move onto the defence for our next poll subject, as we start to build the rest of our team, as chosen by our readers.

I don’t think there is any element of doubt over our best full-back options, so we will not waste anybody’s time with a Hector Bellerin or Mathieu Debuchy debate, nor a Monreal/Gibbs debate.

Poll: How many Arsenal fans would give Ospina starting role?

Throughout the day we will be asking readers to vote for their favoured Arsenal starting line-ups, and while we know the team is picked differently depending on our opponents, we would like to know who you rate as our best.

Rio or Wenger right about Arsenal’s Champions League chances?

As Arsenal fans gear up for the first Champions League match of the new season, and one which could prove to be decisive about which club finishes on top of group A, we are all hoping that this season sees the Gunners make a proper fist of it rather than going out in the first knockout phase.
