I am sure that Arsene Wenger has a clear picture in his mind about how the Arsenal first team and squad will shape up next season, with the summer transfer window hopefully seeing the boss add some top quality players to fill gaps and strengthen Arsenal in key areas.
No matter what you think of the Frenchman or the club´s decision to give him another two year contract I think we have to accept that Wenger is a football man through and through who knows what makes up a good strong team. However, what I think is just as important, if not more so, is the character and attitude of the players who will be trying to lead Arsenal to the EPL title.
We may get angry and frustrated with individual players at times but taking a step back I think we have to understand that poor performances and runs of form are not down to lack of ability but some sort of weakness omn the mental side of things.
How often do we see the team hit a bad patch and find it hard to produce just when it matters? Apart from Alexis Sanchez, I think we can point the finger at just about every player in the squad and so I think Wenger has to be looking to bring in players with the right mentality as well as ability.
I do not like the guy, but do you think someone like the Chelsea and Spain striker Diego Costa is the sort of player that Arsenal need, one who will do whatever it takes to win?
