When you consider that Arsenal have recently let the young striker Benik Afobe leave the club on a permanent basis, even though he was scoring goals for fun this season, it shows you how much Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff must think of Chuba Akpom.
There is finally some action for Arsenal as the summer transfer window starts collecting glasses and shouting drink up please, it’s time. But this transfer action is not really what we want to see, as it sees a player leaving Arsenal rather than one coming in.
Arsenal are resigned to losing THE Polish keeper Lukasz Fabianski as his contract expires this summer, and finding the proper replacement could be one of the most important bits of business that Arsene Wenger does in this transfer window. The latest player linked is John Ruddy and I think he could be the perfect choice.
It would have been very easy for the Arsenal players to slacken off once they knew that fourth place in the Premier League was secured. They all knew how important it was, for the club and the fans, as well as it being where every player wants to be.
The Arsenal players, like Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud, have been saying all the right things this week about not taking their foot off the gas. They are keen to finish the Premier League season strongly in order to keep the confidence building and the results rolling into next weekend, when the Gunners have a fantastic chance to lift their first major trophy in years.
Okay everyone it is Arsenal’s last game of the season so we will get the competition up early so to give every a chance to enter.
I was shocked to find that no-one had predicted the 1-0 win over West Brom last week, so this week I am going to give EVERYONE that gets tomorrows score right one of my exclusive T-Shirts!
Arsene Wenger has just one Premier League game left before the big one. I’m sure that the Frenchman already has a pretty good idea of his Arsenal starting line-up to run out at Wembley and try to finally add to that FA cup the Gunners won in 2005, but there will be some players hoping to prove their fitness and form before the final.
With one Premier League game of the season left, it is a case of better late than never for Arsenal. After a couple of months out of action, Jack Wilshere is fit again and likely to feature against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday.
