Welbeck injury to force Arsenal into the transfer market? Or can Nketiah step up?

As alluded to by Dan Smith in the previous JustArsenal article, the Gunners should go out and spend big to try and catch up with the present Top Four, and our new Head Of Football, Raul Sanllehi, has now admitted that they are now considering the options ahead of the January window.

This is Eddie Nketiah’s big chance to cement his place in the first team, and the pressure is on him to very quickly persuade Emery that he is good enough to fill Welbeck’s boots, but Sanllehi is on the lookout for a replacement from outside if an opportunity arises. He said: “We are very sad for Danny and he knows he has all the support from the club. Yes, that makes you consider things,”

“I am not saying that’s a green light to go to the market but we have good players in the house also that may get further opportunities like Eddie Nketiah for example.

“We need to see. We are in November so it’s a good time to start analysing what options we have in the market. We are not closing the door but it’s still not the preferred one.

“The plans were made in the summer. We are happy with how things are going. We are always going to strive to be the best team we can be.

“If there is a very good opportunity we are definitely going to consider, we will see. Danny Welbeck’s injury alters, in a way, the views.”

At least Arsenal fans now know we may have a bit of interest in the January window, and of course we have the Ramsey situation to occupy us, but isn’t it just refreshing to have an honest and open communication from the managent for a change?

    Us Gooners shouldn’t worry ourselves too much over the unfortunate absent of Danny Welbeck in matches for Arsenal at this stage in the campaign due to the big ankle injury he sustained in our last home Europa League match. This big injury suffered to Danny could see him out of the season for Arsenal. And this has call for his replacement in the squad as a 3rd ranked striker be sourced for with minimum delays. I think in the interim, Arsenal will have to promote a oroven regular goals scorer striker from their U23 squad to the senior team squad to fill the void left behind by Welbeck in the squad. And it is. widely believed in the Gooners camp that that striker should be Eddy Nkethia. After which Arsenal will see if he has the first team pedigree to step up to fill the void left behind by Welbeck in the Arsenal Europa League team and starts scoring goals and giving assists in games for Arsenal onwards..

  3. Aubamezzette

    The needs a right winger more and did even before welbz got injured…
    For the striker role i think Nketiah can be rotated with one of Auba or Lacazette for the remaining Europa league group games.
    For the knockout round… Lacazette has to be moved to be the CF for EL, FAcup n EFL game against Spurs.
    Aubameyang strictly EPL except in some games we wanna play 442 or 352.

    Meanwhile we should get a rightwinger in January, Nicholas Pepe or Ousmane Dembele.
    I think Dembele will be the better buy on the long run n surprisingly cheaper as well since he ll be coming on loan (with an option to buy) .
    The remaining quid can be spent to get a quality CB n a proper backup/rotation option DM like Thomas Partey n maybe a CM like Rabiot on precontract to join for free at the end of the season.
    ..
    Dembele -loan fee 10m
    Bailly/Benatia- 20m
    Partey – 30m.

    1. Aubamezzette

      Prior to January… i wanna see Bellerin and Lacazette tried in the RW.
      Iwobi on LW
      Aubameyang CF.
      Xhaka,Torrreira,Guedouzi in CM in a 433.
      Ozil n Mkhitaryan benched

    Emery is thinking “balance”.

    So if there is any additions it’s going to be in the areas he feels needs attention.

    Also if the player fits his mentality.

    Quick motivational words – Arsenal will be great again. Time will tell.
