Gunners Players and Options by Brighton manyex
We have a new manager Unai Emery and a brand new wave of optimism, he is a winner too…because of that I thought I can use this opportunity to voice my concerns hoping they can improve our squad and make us contenders for every trophy before us!
GOALKEEPERS…we in order in this position and i welcome the competition and Unai’s silence in pronouncing his no.1…but I suppose its Bernd Leno, Petr Cech and Martinez….best 3! I don’t think we still need Ospina anymore! With Marey on loan we are OK!
RIGHT-BACK…waaw we got the best in the world and spoiled for choice. We just need to make some cash out of Carl Jenkinson!
LEFT-BACK…I am still concerned! Niles is not a leftback its a problem we had during Wenger’s time and I thought we were going to resolve this problem…both Nacho and Sead are too injury prone…we got the best in Nacho and strength in Sead but I feel we should look for a young player for the future (Van Aanholt) I suggest. Sead need more work, his marking, skill and passing is not good enough.
CENTRE BACKS….I am satisfied! And glad to see Mustafi improved and calm. The addition of Sokratis brought stability, Mavropanos looks promising, Chambers is great but going out on loan. Holding is a fine defender who just needs confidence! I don’t know about Koscielny if he will ever come back this season! Osei-Tutu needs to be loaned for experience, he can be a future asset.
DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS….Our problematic area! Thank Emery for the improvements and we all know he is not finished yet! At his former job he had Verratti and Rabiot and certainly he now has Torreira (a fantastic player). He needs Steven N’Zonzi and we as Arsenal have always wanted and still want this guy! And we also acquired a brilliant player in Matteo Guendouzi waaw! But we need to lose one between Mo Elneny and Granit Xhaka, of which I prefer we keep Xhaka and release Elneny to accommodate N’zonzi!
ATTACKING MIDFIELDERS…I feel this is a position we have over-concentrated players of lately with OZIL, RAMSEY, IWOBI, MKHITHARYAN, WILLOCK, MAITLAND-NILES, SMITH-ROWE and the 2 released players (Wilshere and Cazorla) and I feel we are OK even if Aaron Ramsey leaves …we can manage pretty well!
ATTACK/STRIKERS….We have one of the deadliest attacks in the league. The way I see it if we can have one or two more additions ….Aubameyang and Lacazette partnership should be capitalised well! But we need another attacking Winger (Ousmane Dembele) no matter the price! We also need another tall, strong and fast player like M’Baye Niang as backup to our attack, with young and dangerous Eddie Nketiah doing soo well…its goals galore and we can be unstoppable! I feel Danny Welbeck, Lucas Perez and Joe Campbell are surplus!
♥Hope my contributions can help for the betterment of our beloved Arsenal!
Gooner for life!
