The Arsenal squad are due to arrive in Asia next Monday, ready to participate in the Barclays Asian trophy with a game against the Singapore select XI team on the Wednesday followed by another game against either Stoke City of Everton to determine the winner, assuming that the Gunners win our first game of course.
If you did not know the answer to this question, you would never guess which of the current Arsenal squad that our German international star Mesut Ozil picked in his best XI. There are two and it would not take a genius to work out that the brilliant two footed midfield genius that is Santi Cazorla would be one of them.
I am including the Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson in this as well as Calum Chambers and Serge Gnabry, even though it looks like Jenks will be spending another season on loan away from the Emirates stadium. After a good season with West Ham, a good summer tournament with England could really help him to keep progressing and to convince Arsene Wenger to bring him back into the Arsenal fold.
My Thoughts On How Our Squad Should Be Set-up For Next Season by Usmanov
With an all important FA Cup final in front of us and what is turning out to be a pretty comfortable run to secure a place in the top four, I am tempted to say that there isn’t much left from this season. We are approaching that time when we would need to start thinking about next season.
There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours regarding who could replace Theo Walcott if he failed to sign a new contract and got sold this summer, but should we be looking at outsiders like Raheen Sterling, or should we be looking closer to home?
There are many very worrying reports that the 30 year-old Arsenal star Santi Cazorla is keen to move back to Spain with Atletico Madrid this summer. Arsene Wenger has totally denied that could happen, but with just one year remaining on his contract Arsenal may just cash in if he refuses an extension.
The young German Serge Gnabry burst into the Arsenal first team last year after being very impressive in pre-season and at the Emirates Cup, so much so that Arsene Wenger promoted him to the First Team squad.
I honestly don’t know why Arsenal fans keeps asking whether Abou Diaby will soon be able to play, considering that Arsene Wenger yet again refused to buy a defensive midfielder in the hope that Diaby would be able to fill that role.
