Arsene Wenger, along with everyone connected with the mighty Arsenal, was understandably buzzing after watching his players polish off Aston Villa and lift the FA cup trophy for the second year in a row. And he suggested that he would take a little time to relax and enjoy the triumph before assessing our season and going into transfer mode.
The England coach Roy Hodgson has assured Arsenal’s very own Jack Wilshere that he will be on the plane to Brazil in June. Hodgson said in a report in the Daily Mail that the squad will include players that got England to the Championship and new faces are unlikely.
Arsenal fans are getting extremely used to having most of their top players injured for a large part of the season, and young Jack Wilshere seems to miss out more than most, but it now seems that Arsene Wenger is confident that the England international will be fit and ready to go to Brazil for the World Cup.
The Player Arsenal should try to sign by VO
One thing every Arsenal fan agrees on right now is the need for a striker. Since the beginning of the season, we’ve had to rely on our midfielders for goals and you can agree with me that it’s much more reliable to have a firing striker, or at least a dependable substitute. That is lacking at Arsenal presently.
While Arsenal are usually well represented in various international teams, it was odd to see England start the first of two crucial World Cup qualifiers with not one Gunner on the pitch against Montenegro. Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs were on the bench, while Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were unavailable due to injury.
It has become clear recently that Arsene Wenger is trying to sign a player to help out in the problem defensive or holding midfield area. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Wenger will be successful in signing somebody, especially now that Napoli are preparing to challenge for Luiz Gustavo from Bayern Munich.
Three signings that would make this a good summer for the Arsenal by KJ
Rumours are starting to pick up now and it looks like Arsenal are finally close to getting some business done. In light of all this news, I thought I’d compile a quick list of three key players that would make Arsenal title contenders next season (I will only look at three players that are realistic/confirmed to be sought after by Arsenal):
Come to Arsenal and lose money! It sounds hard to resist, doesn’t it? That, apparently, is the tempting offer facing the Brazil international keeper Julio Cesar. After Liverpool agreed to allow their Spanish international keeper Pepe Reina to join the Italian club Napoli on loan for the season, however, Cesar’s options are limited and he may be forced to accept such an offer.
