Arsenal are currently being linked with three of Everton’s key men, with manager Ronald Koeman and star duo Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku.
The speculation surrounding Arsene Wenger is at it’s highest point of his reign, and one name who has been thrown out there to replace him is Dutchman Koeman.
The manager has done wonders for Southampton in recent years, and his current side are level on points with us in joint-sixth in the league at present. He could not have gotten his side there without his key men however.
Romelu Lukaku is claimed to have told the club that he will not be signing a new contract, dashing his future under a huge cloud of doubt, and any top name linked with the exit door will of course be linked with our club.
Another of Koeman’s key men in Ross Barkley is now on Arsenal’s watch-list apparently, with the midfielder set to be put up for sale if a new deal is not agreed also.
The two 23 year-olds could prove to be the future of Arsenal Football Club should deals be thrashed out, and Koeman himself has already worked wonders with the pair in only a short time together.
The Blues boss has also showed a willingness to promote youth players into the first-team squad, a trait adhered by current Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, and the Frenchman may even appreciate his abilities when sharing his views on finding his replacement.
Could Arsenal strike a deal to raid Everton of all three key individuals? Would the trio fill the holes in our club? Would Wenger approve of Koeman as his successor?
