Arsenal have once again had an up and down season in the Premier League this term, as manager Arsene Wenger once again faces a fight to hang on to his job.
The Emirates crowd have once again been in a frustrated mood for much of the campaign, and with the club set to miss out on the top four, winning the Europa League looks like the most likely route into Europe’s premier competition for the Gunners.
One thing our landlord here in the Tavern thinks the club have been missing for some time now is some real presence in the middle of the park, and he thinks Arsene Wenger simply has to go out and add a proven commodity in the middle of the park.
One such player who fits the mould and has been impressing massively for the last few seasons in a row now is Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke, who has yet again enjoyed an excellent season for Los Rojos Blancos.
The 26-year-old is a classy midfield operator in the middle of the park and has been the driving force behind any the success that Diego Simeone’s men have enjoyed in recent seasons.
Classy on the ball and and also someone who isn’t afraid to put his foot in where it hurts, Koke would be perfect in the middle for the Gunners, and would certainly be a step up in ability and class from the likes of Jack Wilshere and Granit Xhaka.
Arsenal fans, what do you make of Koke? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
