Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Arsenal still want to bring in another midfielder to the Emirates Stadium but this time; the Gunners are looking for a more established midfielder with Victor Wanyama still Arsene Wenger’s top priority target.
Arsenal midfield appears to be getting very old; Tomas Rosicky is 34 year old, Mathieu Flamini is close to his 32nd birthday and Mikel Arteta is close to his 34th birthday too. Wenger is set to bring in youngsters to fill up the Gunners midfield as the trio mentioned above would be out of contract in the summer.
Mohamed Elneny is 23 year old with a bright future and lots of room for improvement, Francis Coquelin is 24 year old and the Gunners are chasing Victor Wanyama who is also 24 year old; Jack Wilshere is also another young midfielder that is 24 year old too; meaning Arsene Wenger would have an average of 24 years old midfielder that would be the back bone of the Gunners for years to come.
Arteta joined Arsenal from Everton and has been very useful for the Gunners but at 33 years of age, it is highly unlikely that he would be given a new contract at the Emirates; although a coaching role is said to be prepared for him. Tomas Rosicky is another player exiting the Emirates in the summer; he joined Arsenal from German side Borussia Dortmund in 2006 for £6.8 Million. Mathieu Flamini is in his second spell with the Gunners after leaving to join AC Milan in 2008. The French Man joined the Gunners from Marseille in 2004.
The three experienced midfielders have been great servants at the Emirates but there days with the Gunners would seem to come to an end at the end of this season.
