Arsenal fans will be expecting Arsene Wenger to make at least one more transfer addition to the current Arsenal squad after he secures the signing of either Thomas Lemar from Monaco or Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City as the football press seems to think will happen.
But even though the Frenchman has suggested that he will add more strength to the Gunners, we have no clear idea of which position he is looking at. It could be another right back I suppose, especially if Arsenal manage to offload Matthieu Debuchy and Carl Jenkinson this summer, but as long as the rumoured transfer back to Barcelona does not happen we will have Bellerin as first choice and there are options with Chambers and Holding, while Oxlade-Chamberlain looked good as a wing back in the back three formation.
For me it would have to be central midfield and one of the best players in recent Premier League history in that position may just be available to Arsenal in the shape of Nemanja Matic. I think it is odd that Chelsea are willing to sell him but apparently the Serbian is not part of Antonio Conte’s plans.
He was reported to be heading to Old Trafford but after Manchester United hijacked the transfer of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea the EPL champions have apparently blocked the transfer, so maybe Wenger should try to excploit this strife between the clubs and put in a bid for Matic to add the strength, steel and ability that we have so often lacked in the middle. What do you think Gooners?
