The signing of Granit Xhaka has had our Arsenal fans at the Transfer Tavern jumping for joy.
Securing the services of the Swiss playmaker so early into the summer marks a signal intent from Arsene Wenger, that he is ready to invest big to ensure his side can once again become genuine title contenders.
There has been definite improvement at Arsenal over the past three years, with the Gunners winning back-to-back FA Cups, as well as finishing second in the league this campaign – their best finish in over a decade.
Signing’s such as Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have propelled the clubs fortunes upwards, and signing of Xhaka looks like another step in the right direction.
Ultimately however, there seems to still be a certain reluctance to invest, inevitably meaning that Arsene Wenger and his men continue to fall short of the expectation set by themselves during the previous decade, where they won 3 Premier League titles between 1996-2006.
One area that is crying for a change is Arsenal’s front line. While Olivier Giroud may feel hard done by having been the club’s top scorer in two of the past three seasons, the Gunners’ front line still lacks a world class touch.
Having just missed out on Premier League glory this time out, will that be enough to convince Wenger to bring in the front line his side oh so crave? Our landlord hopes so and thinks this front THREE could see Arsenal win the title next time out…..
