Arsenal are not the only club perceived to be in need of a major overhaul, Manchester United are seen to be needing a more urgent restructuring of their squad and according to the Sun that is exactly what their manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is threatening to do.
Talksport picked up this story and named eight players that could be jettisoned at Old Trafford with just one of them, Eric Bailly, linked specifically with a move to the Emirates.
I had a look through the list and asked myself a simple question, is there any of these players that Arsenal should try to sign if United are willing to sell?
This is my opinion on whether we should consider making a move for any of them.
No, too old and too ponderous. At his peak, he was beautiful to watch but he is well past his best.
No, would disrupt the dressing room with his huge ego and I can think of a load of players I would prefer for the money he would cost.
No, do I really need to explain this one?
No, apart from the fact that he is not actually that good do we really want a player that is so injury prone?
Yes, he is a top talent but has suffered from bad man management and a massive collapse in his confidence. Get his mind right and he can be blistering.
No, to me he is just average and is clearly not up to the rigours of English football and the intensity that comes with it.
No, we have better already and I would have more trust in Eddie Nketiah than Lukaku.
Yes, I know injuries have taken their toll but on his day he is good and he has adapted to the pace of the English game and will get better.
So just Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly do I think that Arsenal should consider tabling offers for in the event that they become available.
Arsenal may not be in the best condition right now and we do need some changes and tweaks but at least we can take comfort in the knowledge that we do not need full-blown surgery as the Red Devils do.
