This summer is likely to be a busy one in North-London, with three exits already confirmed, and a string of others likely to follow.
Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky are all leaving, with their contracts having ended, and will need to be replaced. Kieran Gibbs and Per Mertesacker could also be forced to leave in search of regular action, while Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexis Sanchez are also linked with the exit door, and Danny Welbeck has been ruled out for the next nine months, leaving a number of players needed for the upcoming campaign.
Granit Xhaka is most strongly linked with a move to Arsenal this month, and has already said his goodbyes to his current club Borussia Monchengladbach. The 23 year-old was his club’s captain, and could bring some much-needed leadership to the Gunners first-team.
One of the stand-out players of the Premier League season is claimed to have ‘decided’ to join us at the Emirates next season, is my personal preference over any other to make the switch. The job he done this season is nothing short of exceptional, and would give us a huge boost in our bid to win the PL title next season.
Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge has been linked with an unlikely switch to Arsenal, and following their dismal Europa League final, they no longer have any European football to participate in next season. Maybe he could push to leave?
I revealed Kante as my choice in the thread, but who would you pick?
