Though Arsene Wenger’s future has now been thrown into immense doubt, something that has never happened since he took over the job in 1996, the first and foremost thing that the club board should ensure is that it shouldn’t affect the transfer-ins before next season.
After the loss to West Bromwich Albion, the Gunners are now in the fifth position of the league collecting just 50 points from 27 matches. Wenger explained the current club form as going through a unique bad patch that they haven’t experienced in the last 20 years; and when the players can’t be bothered by poor outcomes, you have a big problem.
However, one look at the Arsenal squad and it will be crystal clear that the bunch consists of quality players who have played at the topmost levels having a good experience. And little plug-ins here and there would complete the team to challenge for everything. Now, normally it is the sporting director’s role to ensure that the club reaches its transfer targets, but even that position has been in the dark of late.
While an absolution on the dilemma doesn’t seem far now, we list three players Arsenal should definitely try to bring in the coming summer-
Kylian Mbappe- He has been compared to Thierry Henry earlier and his recent performances justify every letter of it. The 18-year-old has the perfect age and qualities as the club likes in their transfers and they really need a strong personality on that right wing. With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain getting recognised for his more central role, Theo Walcott has had a free run in that position regardless of his performances. And although he hasn’t been poor at all this season, he is incapable of having an impact under pressure situations. Mbappe is exactly what the club needs.
Marco Verratti- A distant call by all means as Paris Saint-Germain doesn’t seem eager to let go of him under any situation anytime soon, but he is the ideal man to improve Arsenal’s midfield. Verratti’s work rate and ball control are unparalleled, and with Aaron Ramsey in disastrous form since the past two seasons, a change is essential. The 24-year-old has been the lynchpin for PSG for the past few seasons despite the plethora of world-class players the French side contains, which says volumes about him.
Serge Aurier- The full-back positions at the club needs immediate improvement as it has now cost the team points on numerous occasions. While Hector Bellerin is definitely a bright prospect, no competition makes him complacent. The left-backs, on the other hand, have let the manager down repeatedly. The 24-year-old has been phenomenal at his job for years now and looks the perfect fit for Premier League.
