I am starting to think that the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the Valencia and Germany defender Shkodran Mustafi might just be barking up the wrong tree. Either that or we are struggling to get the deal done because even before the bad news about Gabriel picking up what looks a serious injury, the Gunners were short at the back.
Perhaps it is for just such a situation as Arsenal find themselves in now, with just over a fortnight to go before the start of a brand new and crucial season and our two first choice centre backs unavailable, that Arsene Wenger has been keeping his powder dry in the transfer market.
England are desperate to snatch a win against Wales today, in order to get their title bid back on target, but the points wont come easy.
Arsenal stars Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey could be set to go head-to-head in midfield tomorrow, should the Gunners youth product get called into the first team, and this duel could prove to be pivotal in the result.
The Premier League season is finally over, and the rumour mill is kicking up some dust already, so we thought we’d take a look at our potential starting XI, should such rumours prove to be true…
Arsenal are closing in on the signatures of Swansea City and Borussia Monchengladbach’s club captains this summer.
The Gunners have been linked with the Swiss midfielder’s arrival over the past few months, and he recently said his goodbyes to the club after their final league fixture. Xhaka was seen hugging his coaching staff, and was given a standing ovation by the club’s fans, and is firmly expected to leave this summer.
