A new keeper to challenge the current Arsenal number one, Wojciech Szczesny is one of the transfer targets on Arsene Wenger’s January shopping list. After being linked with a number of older players, such as Pepe Reina from Liverpool, the Prof seems to have gone the other way as he is preparing a bid for the 19-year old stopper from Birmingham City, Jack Butland.
One of the revelations of the season so far, and there have been a few for Arsenal fans, has been the return to form of the 21-year old midfielder Aaron Ramsey. We have probably all been a little guilty of impatience when it comes to the Welsh captain, but maybe he is the victim of his own previous success. There is always a worry that a player recovering from a long and serious injury will never be the same again but, thankfully, Ramsey is finally starting to remind us just how good he can be.
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has admitted often enough that his form dipped terribly in the second half of last season, but injuries seemed to force Arsene Wenger to remain faithful and keep picking him despite the lack of confidence from the Welsh captain.
Now that Jack Wilshere has been ruled out of joining Team GB’s Olympic team, it looks like Arsenal will have five current Gunners going to play at the Olympics in August.
