Arsenal have undergone drastic changes this summer with the biggest change taking place when Arsene Wenger, the longest-serving manager in the history of the club, called it a day.
Unai Emery has taken charge at the Emirates stadium, which has seen most of its backroom staff leave as a part of the overhaul. It would be interesting to see how the club fares in the new season with a lot of new faces.
Since the transfer window is well underway, Arsenal are also active in the transfer market to bolster their squad. Let’s take a look at 3 targets who the club should revive its interest in.
Thomas Lemar was on the verge of joining the Gunners last summer until a sensational £90m move for the Monaco man fell through on the deadline day. Monaco dropped the asking price to £60m in January but the Gunners deemed the price tag unrealistic.
Lemar is a live wire who thrives on taking on players before looking for a killer pass or a rocket shot. The French attacking midfielder could prove to be what Arsenal need, as they lack players who are great at dribbling and carrying the ball efficiently.
The player could prove to be a brilliant addition to Arsenal’s ranks as there is a serious need for quality in the midfield department.
The CSKA Moscow midfielder was linked with a move to Arsenal last year but there was no breakthrough. Golovin is a hard-working box to box midfielder with a great technical ability similar to Aaron Ramsey.
Golovin would be a good addition to the central midfield of Arsenal as they lack quality players in that area.
Jack Butland has been on the radar of many big clubs in England over the years. Arsenal were also interested in the talented Stoke City shot-stopper to replace an ageing Petr Cech. Butland, 25 years old, presents himself as a great option for Unai Emery to look at.
Stoke City’s relegation from the premier league could prove to be a boon to Arsenal in their pursuit of the player as he could be looking to stay in the Premier League.
Cech struggled for consistency last season and it is high time that the Gunners sign a quality goalkeeper. Butland could prove to be one.
