Arsenal continue to do ok in the Premier League this season but without pulling up any trees, and a top four finish looks to be the best outcome they can hope for this term.
The Gunners had a turbulent summer, with plenty of rumours around their players and manager surrounding the club, and some of those rumours have continued into the winter, with speculation still rife around the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Our landlord here at the Tavern thinks this issue needs resolving ASAP, and thinks the Gunners and Wenger need to be planning ahead to get some ideas of replacements should either of their creative stars leave.
This week, he’s been scouting the European market in some of his spare time, and one player he thinks who could come to the Emirates and do a job is Lazio attacking midfielder Luis Alberto, who has been in excellent form this season in Serie A.
Despite an ill fated spell with Liverpool as a young player, Alberto could well be out to prove himself in the Premier League, and a chance to play for Arsenal in a system which encourages creativity, could be the perfect environment for Alberto to flourish.
A classy player with the ball at his feet and capable of playing anywhere across the forward line, Alberto could add a different dimension to Arsenal and give them a timely boost, should Sanchez or Ozil decide their time is up in London.
Gunners fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know!
