Arsenal have had a busy 2015-16 season as the team yet again failed to capitalize a great chance of winning the league this year and the manager had no answers for that. The team had the perfect squad this season and had a perfect opportunity to grab the title as all the other contenders slipped on their way in the pursuit.
Players did a fantastic job (sometimes) in the league but, jokes apart, what about the next transfer window ? Surely, Wenger will be looking to strengthen his squad in some departments so someone from the team may have to make their way. Arsenal have some aging players who enjoy most of their time either on the bench or out injured. Arsenal had a great history of having many great midfielders of all time but times have changed and have changed drastically. Let’s face it, the team has no aggression that Viera and Pires had. Players are playing great but you need some aggression while you play in the premier league.
What if Arsenal has a full fit squad? I do believe that there are some players who Arsenal should sell in this coming transfer window and will be discussing on the same.
Mikel joined Arsenal on 31 August 2011 on a reported fee of a reported fee of £10 million. He was bought to replace the previous number 8 of the club Samir Nasri who left the club for Manchester City.
The Club captain Mikel Arteta is a highly important player for the team both on and off the pitch, well that is what the club claims. Arteta started his career as a defensive midfielder and then eventually started to play in the more attacking role. He always has a calm and assertive influence in the middle of the park.
With 100 fouls committed against him in the 2006-07 season, he was the most fouled player in the Premier League. Being a Spanish star, he has the ability to deliver pin-point crosses in the box. He has the vision but let’s face it, as some good signings arrive in the club he won’t be able to play for the club for long. In this season, he has made just 8 appearances for the club is really not the player he used to be.
He was the prince of the midfield in his days but honestly, those days are gone.
