Opinion: Arsenal should take a risk on this former Chelsea man to replace Ozil

Opinion: Arsenal should take a risk on this former Chelsea man to replace Ozil

Arsenal continued their decent form this season as they held Spurs to a 1-1 draw this weekend.

The Gunners have been impressive enough under new manager Unai Emery, although a quiet January was a bit of a concern as the club failed to make moves in the market.

Another rumbling issue at the Emirates has been the form and future of Germand midfielder Mesut Ozil, who has drifted in and out of the squad this term to differing effects at times.

The summer is going to be a big one for the Gunners, and they simply have to make some moves in the market if they are to keep improving and moving forward as a club.

And one man we here at the Tavern think would be a superb addition is current Monchengladbach midfield ace Thorgan Hazard, who has developed himself into one of the finest attacking midfield players on the continent.

Hazard, who is the brother of current Chelsea superstar Eden, never really got his chance at the Blues, but he has developed over in the Bundesliga into one of the most dangerous attacking midfield players in Europe on his day.

With Ozil potentially seeing his time with the Gunners come to an end, a player like Hazard might well be a suitable replacement both in the short and long-term.

Arsenal will look to playerss Kevin De Bruyne for inspiration too, after seeing the Belgian leave Chelsea with little opportunity and then return to Man City as one of the world’s finest players.

Hazard has bags of ability, and he’d be a superb addition for the Gunners with his technique, ability to play numerous positions, and finishing ability all points to note in his game.

Gunners fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
