Having signed Lucas Torreira, Leno Bernd, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Mattéo Guendouzi, Arsenal’s team is looking solid for the new season. However, the Gunners still need to do more in the transfer window.
They could still do with the signing of another centre back and have been linked with quite a few. But aside a centre back, I firmly believe we need another left wing forward at the club.
And we may not have to look far for a quality and very reliable left winger. Anyone who knows me knows I am a big fan of Anthony Martial. I have always wanted Arsenal to sign the former AS Monaco star even before he signed for Manchester United but with reports last month suggesting he is fed up with warming the bench at Old Trafford, Arsenal might just have a good chance of signing him.
Ever since the news broke that he wants out of Old Trafford, Transfer Hound’s hot-o-meter, which is a football tracker application, have him ranked as the third most talked about player on twitter in relation to the transfer window. Most United fans are sad that they could be losing him while Arsenal fans as well as the fans of other clubs are begging their clubs to sign him off United.
I do not know Unai Emery’s mind but if he is like me, I will certainly be considering him. He will be a solid player for Arsenal and our attacking style will greatly suit him. Off course it will not be easy to get Mourinho to sanction the deal but player power could work to our favour here especially if the player is insistent on leaving Old Trafford. At Arsenal, he will know he has a good chance of playing week in week out when fit as we currently do not have any reliable player manning his position.
