Gunners are clearly on the rocks right now.
The players who have joined this season are undeniably improving, and it would seem that Arsenal will perform better in major competitions.
Fans, on the other hand, are hoping for at least one.
So, who should play this role?
Many pundits and fans pointed out that something needed to be done to cover for Thomas Partey. The Ghanaian plays an important role for the Gunners, but without him, the club could collapse. Then we must consider two players who are well-liked by the media and fans.
The North Londoners have already added midfielder Fabio Vieira, winger Marquinhos, and striker Gabriel Jesus to their attack. By Charlie Parker-Turner of Express, LYON seems to be willing to sell Lucas Paqueta this summer. Arsenal is interested in Paqueta but has not made a formal offer. At the same time, giants such as Manchester City are intriguing and may force the Gunners to make a move. According to the French newspaper L’Equipe, Manchester City is interested in signing the Brazilian midfielder.
Tilemans is another player who has received a lot of attention from Arsenal. According to many sources, including CBS News’ Ben Jacob, Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal is the favorite to sign Yuri Tilemans. Leicester must act quickly because he only has one season left on his current contract. If they don’t sell him this season, he’ll be a free agent next summer. The Belgian international is said to be worth around £25 million, but Arsenal has yet to make a move.
From our point of view, whoever comes to the midfield is to be welcomed because the current four are still not enough to fight in a highly competitive game like EPL. We’ll still need more senior-level midfielders, won’t we?
