Arsenal Likely Line Up Next Season With Jamie Vardy In Attack

With the expected signing of Jamie Vardy from Leicester City, Arsene Wenger might tinker with his squad a little, though playing his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation , the French man is likely to change certain players next season.

As expected Petr Cech would start in goal with the likes of Hector Bellerin, Gabriel Paulista, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal playing in a four man back four. This means that the likes of Per Mertesaker, Kieran Gibbs and Mattieu Debuchy will be on the bench if not later sold.

The midfield will have the duo of Granit Xhaka who is a £33 million signing from Borussia Mochengladbach and Mohammed El’ Neny play as the defensive players. This is in contrast to that played by Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin most part of last season when fit. This will mean El’Neny does the proper defensive work shielding the back four and recovering ball while Xhaka is allowed to bump forward when need arises playing slightly ahead of his partner but at the same time putting in his defensive shift like the then perfect pairing of Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas in the Chelsea team of 2014/2015 season.

In the forward line, Mesut Ozil will vacate his no.10 role for veteran Santi Cazorla who is also good in spraying passes but better in shooting. Cazorla will play slightly behind the main striker while Alexis Sanchez and Ozil play on the left and right positions.

With that sorted , Jamie Vardy will likely be the lone man upfront. This is the most likely formation that will be employed by Wenger in games that he decides to play attacking football. As the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Joel Campbell and Francis Coquelin will provide enough cover for those starting , giving Arsenal the depth they have lacked over the years.
