It’s been a rather cataclysmic campaign for Arsenal, who at the turn of the year were odds-on for the title and looked pretty much unstoppable. Unfortunately for the Gunners, the problem in the end was a similar outcome to previous campaigns- they were responsible for their own downfall.
With fan criticism of Arsene Wenger at an all-time high, Arsenal need wholesale changes this summer to build a squad that’s competitive in England and in Europe- and it’s got even harder by the rise of Leicester, Spurs and West Ham, whilst Chelsea have Antonio Conte, Liverpool have Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City have Pep Guardiola.
It’s not all doom and gloom though, as Arsenal are eyeing some exciting transfers- most notably the addition of £25m-rated Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, who is also being chased by rivals Chelsea and Manchester United.
That puts more pressure on the Gunners and it’s a race they can’t afford to miss out on- and we’ve explained in detail why that’s the case.
Hit Icardi below to see FIVE reasons why Arsenal can’t afford to miss out on his signature!
