Arsenal appear to be working hard in the transfer window at present, but there are a number of question marks already in the first-team squad that could do with being answered.
Bookmakers have shortened the odds on Arsenal completing deals to sign a number of players as we look to make waves in the current transfer window.
The Gunners have already completed a club record deal to bring in Alexandre Lacazette this month, and are believed to be working hard to strengthen in other areas also.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is enjoying his best season in an Arsenal shirt, but still remains in-and-out of Arsene Wenger’s first-team plans. The former Southampton youth product has one year left on his current contract with our club, and Liverpool are linked with a strong interest in signing him.
Stan Kroenke is claimed to have persuaded Arsene Wenger to sign a new contract with the club, with the idea of rehauling the squad over the next two years, but which current stars deserve to be more important?
Arsenal went to Old Trafford today hoping to end a 10 year wait for a Premier League win away at Old Trafford and we had a great chance to do so against a Manchester United side weakened significantly by the absence of key players like Ibrahimovic, Bailly, Smalling and Fellaini.
The big news from the current international break from an Arsenal point of view involves our on-loan midfield star Jack Wilshere, who has been brought back into the fold by the temporary manager Gareth Southgate after getting some regular game time with his current club AFC Bournemouth.
The Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott has been like a breath of fresh air for the Gunners this season, so with the injury picked up by Lucas Perez in the EFL cup win over Reading in midweek the last thing Arsene Wenger wanted was to lose Walcott as well.
The clear and obvious priority for Arsenal this season is to fight for the Premier League title, with a decent run in the Champions League a close second, which would be greatly helped by finally finishing on top of our European group.
