Arsenal fans on Twitter concerned about club’s midfield options under Emery

The Arsenal fans on Twitter have been looking at their midfield options and have been questioning where the creativity will be coming from. The club have let both Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla leave for free this summer and with predominantly defensive midfielders at the club, you can understand where The Gunners are coming from.

No one is questioning that there’s talent in the Arsenal midfield. Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and soon-to-be Gooner, Lucas Torriera have talent in abundance, but it’s a good question to ask where the creativity will be held. Some fans would bring Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the argument, but it looks like Unai Emery will be deploying the pair as interiors behind the likes of Aubameyang and Lacazette.

Tactically, Emery is a superb gaffer and the fans shouldn’t be questioning his methods. Seeing a side under his tutelage will be a breath of fresh air compared to the stagnating style of football that Arsene Wenger deployed in his final few years as the Arsenal manager. However, with a lot of defensive options in midfield, it will be interesting to see how the Spanish manager intends to transition from midfield to attack.

As you can see, the fans all seem to agree that they might struggle for creativity in central midfield next season.
