Could Wenger promote Akpom instead of buying a new Arsenal striker?

Will Arsenal invest or promote Chuba Akpom?

Whilst it remains well anticipated that Arsenal will be looking to recruit a striker this summer to join the front line, just who will be signing for the club, remains largely unknown. But instead of seeing a new face at the Emirates, could Wenger instead promote Akpom to first team duties?

Will Yaya Sanogo ever be ready to play for Arsenal?

When Arsenal bought Yaya Sanogo from the French side Auxerre three seasons ago, he was hailed as a hot young talent and was expected to flourish under Arsene Wenger’s tutelage. But after two years of doing not-very-much at Arsenal, he was sent out on loan at Dutch side Ajax, where it was hoped he would be learning from our past-master Dennis Bergkamp and manager Frank De Boer.

Ozil was brilliant – but a word of warning…..

It is easy to get carried away with Arsenal’s pre-season form, especially when your team slots six goals with no response. Naysayers will be quick to remind us about Yaya Sanogo. The lanky forward burst into the scene with a wonderful exhibition of skill and finishing at the Emirates Cup last pre-season. But when the season started, he faded away and was recently shipped to Ajax on loan. The point is not to get the expectations too pumped up but to look at the preparations with pragmatism.

Szczesny? Should Arsenal send more players to Ajax?

Latest transfer reports coming out of Ajax talk about the possibility of the Dutch giants signing Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. The Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has reportedly been in touch with the Gunners to find out about his availability.

Is Ajax the perfect place for Sanogo?

Arsene Wenger admits that it is only paperwork that is between Yaya Sanogo and joining Ajax on loan. He also thinks that it would be to the benefit of the forward. The presence of two former Arsenal legends at the Dutch club is a cause of optimism for Wenger. Marc Overmars is the director of football at Ajax while Dennis Bergkamp is the assistant to the manager Frank de Boer.
