The first season without Arsene Wenger has brought mixed results for Arsenal. Under Unai Emery, the Gunners have improved in matches against their top rivals but are yet to crack into the top 4 positions in the league. Their new manager has been changing formations in almost every match he has managed this season and a large part of that is due to the fact that he does not have the right players at his disposal.
For Arsenal to move forward uner Unai Emery, they need to bring in player who suit his style of play. Here are 3 players whom Arsenal need to sign this summer window.
The 23-year-old has taken Ligue 1 by storm this season, netting 19 times and providing 11 assists in 32 games to catch the eye of several top clubs.
Liverpool are reportedly leading the chase for his signature, with Premier League rivals Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton also interested.
Lille look set to finish second in the French top flight, thanks largely to the form of Pepe, and the club are already resigned to the prospect of losing him this summer. Club president Gerard Lopez recently told Telefoot: “Four or five players will be leaving this summer.
He is an explosive left-footer who can play on both wings but works best on the right flank. He is exactly the sort of player who Unai Emery works best with, a dribbler with an eye for goal and a final pass.
2. Samuel Umtiti
With Barcelona in hot pursuit of Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt, it is almost certain that one of their current center backs will leave in the summer. Samuel Umtiti seems the obvious pick and Arsenal should be in for him. A World Cup winner with France in 2018, he has World Class ability and is an excellent ball playing defender.
Umtiti is exactly the sort of player Arsenal need to replace the error-prone Mustafi at the heart of Unai Emery’s rearguard.
Out of favor at Manchester City this season, Leroy Sane is still better than all the wing options at Arsenal at the moment. Blessed with blistering pace and vision, the German has a deadly left foot and can play on both flanks. He would be an upgrade on Henrik Mkhitaryan and the disappointing Alex Iwobi.
His partnership with the likes of Pierre Aubameyang would cause havoc to opposition defences. If Arsenal wants to restore their lost glory and stature in English Football, Leroy Sane is the type of player they should be signing.
