After failing to win the Premier League for the 13th time, Arsene Wenger has to prove a point to his critiques and show his principals at the Emirates that he deserves the contract extension offered to him.
Arsene Wenger has already bolstered his squad with top-notch players – Sead Kolasinac joined on a free transfer and Lacazette joined Arsenal in a club record 52million pounds deal but the club is yet linked with a move for some players.
Winning the FA Cup trophy for the third time in three years shows that Arsenal still have quality in their side but they still need at least two players to fire them to the Premier League title. Contract rebels Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez appear to be staying put at the Emirates and this has been a major boost for the Gunners.
We think Arsenal should sign these two players before the window is shut.
Goretzka plies his trade for German Bundesliga side Schalke 04. The 22-year-old is in the final year of his contract and he is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal, stirring speculation that he wants out of the Club, with Arsenal scouring the possibility of signing him.
The midfielder has been dubbed as the secret weapon of the Bundesliga, who is believed to be an improvement over Aaron Ramsey. He is described as a great tackler, has an eye for goal and intercepts the ball with ease.
Arsenal could do with the midfielder to fill in the deep created by the absence of Santi Cazorla. Albeit Wilshere has returned to Arsenal, but his injury vulnerability means he cannot be thrusted onto the pitch always.
Mahrez has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal and Roma but Wenger has failed to sign the player despite the Algerian wanting to leave the Foxes.
Although Arsenal are interested in Thomas Lemar, methinks Mahrez is a better choice giving his experience in the Premier League. Mahrez can play on the flank and he could occupy the right side permanently and form a potent trio with Sanchez and Lacazette.
