While Arsene Wenger and Arsenal are supposedly find every possible way of getting Alexis and Ozil to put pen to paper, it’s being reported in the media today that there’s an English trio at the club who should be a little more concerned than most about where their future lies.
Arsenal fans will be keen to see at least one first team face join the club during this transfer window, with just Cohen Bramell being the Gunners only signing so far this January. There are plenty of names supposedly on the wanted list, but could a former Arsenal youth player get the chance to return as a first team regular?
There have been a number of footballing stars make the move from across Europe to the Chinese Super League in these last few transfer windows, a number of which have come from the Premier League. Big money moves for players such as Oscar have become a regular feature of this transfer window and the last, so much so that the footballing culture in China is rapidly growing.
Let’s face it Arsenal fans, we have had to endure some tough transfer windows over the last decade or so. Whether it was because we lost one of the best players in the side to a Premier League or European rival or because we failed with a transfer bid or perhaps ended up signing an over the hill Swedish midfielder with a bad back when we badly needed a striker, there have been some stinkers.
Even though Arsenal have just recently signed the young English defender Cohen Bramall and the manager already has two very good first team options, the position of left back is one of the ones that comes up more than most in the various Arsenal transfer rumours rolling around the football media.
Arsenal have struggled to cope with the loss of Santi Cazorla to injury this term, and I can’t help but look at possible replacements.
Everton are supposedly considering allowing Gerard Deulofeu to leave the club, and have already turned down a temporary offer, with a permanent deal seemingly more likely for the Spaniard.
Arsenal fans have not been too vocal about how much the side was missing the Wales international midfield star for a lot of the current season, probably because we have not really seen the best from Aaron Ramsey for some time. He was excellent for his country at Euro 2016 and earned himself a place in the UEFA team of the tournament but that only made it more frustrating that his form was hard to find at club level.
Mesut worries about scoring goals more than he should, according to Arsenal team-mate Alexis Sanchez.
The pair have become two of the most important players in our squad over the past couple of seasons, and the duo seem to be helping each other to further enhance their build-up play.
