This weekend saw domestic leagues across Europe draw to a close and, with some continental and domestic cup competitions excluded, the focus is now solely on France ahead of this summer’s highly-anticipated European Championships.
It’s, astonishingly, been four years since Spain retained their crown and the football situation has altered massively during that time. Los Rojas are the finest example, after their abysmal World Cup campaign two years ago and the 2012 European Championship finalists, Italy, also experienced an early exit.
Remarkably, the last side that wasn’t Spain to win the Euro’s was Greece way back in 2004 but this summer is set to be fiercely competitive, with the likes of France, World champions Germany, Italy, Belgium, Spain and, hopefully England, set to go a long way.
As usual in a summer international tournament, the eyes of Europe’s biggest sides will be looking to snatch the next best thing and tournaments in the past have provided the step-up for some big players, including Wayne Rooney way back in 2004.
With Arsenal needing wholesale changes this summer, the Gunners will have their eyes cast on the competition and we’ve picked out some quality players from Group A that Arsene Wenger should consider moving for.
