Arsenal’s 3-0 win against Fenerbahce in Istanbul last night will have bought Arsene Wenger some much needed relief, but the Arsenal boss will be more aware than anyone that it will not last for long.
The Gunners slick performance last night will go some way to proving their manager’s theory that the players he has at his disposal are good enough to challenge this season, but the fans remain desperate to see new faces.
Their opening day defeat to Aston Villa highlighted the lack of depth in the current squad, and the fact that not a single first team player has been bought in this summer remains a mystery.
It has not been for the want of trying, with Arsenal seemingly being linked with every player under the sun week in, week out.
The likes of Higuan, Jovetic, and Bernard have all gone elsewhere, whilst the less said about the Luis Suarez saga the better.
One position the Gunners appear to be desperate to strengthen is the middle of the park, with Wenger in the market for a midfield enforcer.
The latest target appears to be Sevilla’s 20-year-old Frenchman Geoffrey Kondogbia. Highly rated in Spain and his homeland, here we have identified 5 things you may not know about Arsenal’s latest transfer target.
