A large number of Arsenal fans are expecting (and hoping) that Arsene Wenger will finally give up his throne as manager this summer, but which players should go with him?
Arsene Wenger’s future remains up in the air at present, and while he is known for not liking too change much in personnel in a short time at Arsenal, the club may not have too much choice this summer.
Arsenal’s Premier League title challenge has all but been ended in 2017, thanks to some exceptional form by Chelsea, as well as a lacking mentality and strength within our side to keep pace.
Analysing where we have been so disappointing, the only position where any qualms could be made, is within our central midfield.
Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Miralem Pjanic from Juventus, while Aaron Ramsey is being touted as a possibility to go the other way.
The Gunners have suffered without the creative spark of Santi Cazorla dictating play from the midfield following his absence through injury, and the club have been on the lookout for a future replacement.
It might not have quite come for the young Gunner but of all the Arsenal players on the pitch in our EFL cup defeat by Southampton it was Alex Iwobi who looked the most likely and showed the most desire to actually get something good to happen for Arsenal.
Former England internationals Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand have moved to share their disappointment at Aaron Ramsey’s supposed play-acting in Arsenal’s Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain last night.
One of the big decisions for Arsene Wenger as Arsenal prepared for this evening’s potentially decisive Champions League group game against PSG was what to do about his forward line. Despite the fact that Alexis Sanchez has been doing well in the new role of centre forward it was getting increasingly hard to ignore the claims of Olivier Giroud.
We can complain too much about the clinical side of the game from Arsenal this weekend, as the equalising goal headed in by Olivier Giroud just before injury time came from our one and only shot on target from the Premier League away game against Manchester United.
