Arsenal’s rocky opening to the season has been put well behind them thanks to a stunning run of form under new manager Unai Emery.
Last weekend’s 5-1 demolition of Fulham put a further marker down to shows that the Gunners are to be considered a threat this season, and manager Emery deserves a lot of credit for implementing his style of play in such a short period of time.
The likes of Lacazette, Ramsey, and Aubameyang are firing on all cylinders, and with the way things are going, Gunners fans will be growing increasingly confident that they might well just be able to snatch a top four spot this term.
However, as with most clubs, there are still one or two rumbling issues within the Arsenal camp, and the international break gives Emery and the club a small period of time to address such problems.
With that in mind, we at the Transfer Tavern have taken a look at TWO potential issues Arsenal could look to sort out during this international break…
Aaron Ramsey’s future
The Welsh midfielder remains a key figure at the Emirates but is looking like one of the players who could well move on come the end of the season, with his contract set to come to an end.
Tying Ramsey down should be of the utmost importance for Arsenal, given the amount they will have to go and pay to bring in a suitable replacement if the former Cardiff man does move on.
Manager Emery is clearly a big fan of his midfield ace, and he will no doubt want a big say in securing his future with the club.
Keeping Aubameyang happy
While things are going well for the Gunners and the former Dortmund man is getting amongst the goals, it will be interesting to see how long he enjoys playing a wide role.
Alexandre Lacazette is banging in the goals and rightly keeping his place in the XI up front, but Aubameyang is a striker first and foremost, and will no doubt be craving the chance to show what he can do down the middle.
Emery will have to manage this, and while at the moment it’s not such a problem, a downturn in form could well mean this becomes something more than it is.
