Another turbulent season for Gunners without best player last year Robin Van Persie and they still managed to secure bettle for Champions League in summer. Arsene Wenger got around £70 M to spend this summer on new reinforcement. Will this be enough for Wenger to lift Arsenal back on winning trophies?
First I’d like to point out bright points of this season in Arsenal’s team:
Santi Cazorla has netted 12 goals and hattrick in his first Premier League season. Second one is promising Jack Wilshere, he came back stronger and showed his best against Brazil on international level. Lukas Podolski did great job on left wing and as center forward at the end, scored 16 goals in all competitions. Theo Walcott showed big desire to play center forward and scored 14 goals being best Arsenal’s scorer in Premier League. Tomas Rosicky did impact in their game late in the season over Bayern Munich win at Allianz Arena. They did better results since. Koscielny and Mertesacker did quite well this season. On left back we have impressive youngster Gibbs and Monreal fighting for spot. Only right back lack opponet for spot as Sagna will leave and there is only Jenkinson left. Seems like Arsenal got stable defence infront new year.
Wenger said he’ll spend big this year, we expect active Arsenal on market. First reinforcements might be youngster Yaya Sanogo from Auxerre for free and Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina for around €30 M.
