With some more days left to the end of the summer transfer window, Arsenal will be looking to strengthen their squad for this season, in the wake of the shock defeat that the Gunners had to face at the hands of Stoke City in their last match in the Premier League. New recruit Jese Rodriguez scored the only goal of the match in his very first match in the Premier League to hand Arsenal their first defeat of the season.
The North London club went on to invest big this summer, as they brought in one of the top class strikers in the form of Alexandre Lacazette from French Ligue 1 side Lyon to bolster their attack. However, the squad seems to be lacking quality in the midfield, which did not play as per expectations in their last encounter against the Potters, being not able to provide ample amount of support to the frontline and supply quality balls into the attacking third, setting up the forwards to score goals and bring back Arsenal into the match.
The man in charge at the Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger, who was hugely criticized in the past season after his team was not able to make into the top four and missed out on a chance to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 1998, is well aware of the fact that he needs to inspire his side to achieve something substantial this season, having won the Premier League nearly 14 years ago for the last time. For that, he might have to revamp his side and make full use of the remaining days before the transfer window closes.
The wily tactician is having a number of players in his sights at the current situation, with one of them at the top of his target list for the new season in the form of Croatian international Marcelo Brozovic from Inter Milan.
The midfielder, despite playing to the best of his capabilities since his arrival at the club in 2016, has fallen down the pecking order under current manager Luciano Spaletti and might be offloaded this summer.
With players like Mesut Ozil, Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey failing to deliver in their last match against Stoke City, their French coach might be rethinking on his policy to stick with the same line-up and bring in the 24 year old Croatian, who can be a good addition to the side, given the fact that he can make crucial assists to provide the forwards with more chances to score more goals to keep the team in the advantage.
