Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
However, silverware is still imperative in order to turn it from a special season into an iconic one. There are quiet, but no less serious, whispers of a title challenge murmuring around The Emirates already.
This season will be a special one for Arsenal, whatever happens in terms of silverware, being it is the manager’s 20th years at the club.
Already this season’s squad look more experienced, mature and composed no matter what the consequences and the 3-2 win over Ludogorets, having been 2-0 down, was proof of that.
Despite dropping points in the North London derby, we remain more than in contention at the top, just two points adrift of leader Liverpool, however there is a long way to go, and reinforcements will be needed.
Considering we’ve made it through to the knockouts in the Champions League once again, we’re still in the EFL Cup, hunting for a title and also have the FA Cup to consider in the New Year, money will have to be spent in order to keep the squad fresh and competitive.
Where better, then, to look than in the Premier League, for players who know the ins and outs of how to play in the best league in the world. And where better to start looking than Old Trafford?
The former Southampton man has fallen on hard times under the reign of Jose Mourinho, but that by all means does not indicate he wouldn’t be a good addition.
During his time on the South Coast the Frenchman received heaps of praise for the role he played in their midfield, and was repeatedly linked with a move to The Emirates.
An ambitious one, but hear me out.
The Armenia international is having a torrid time of it in Manchester. Having arrived from Borussia Dortmund in the summer he has subsequently fallen to the periphery of Jose Mourinho’s squad with the former Chelsea manager having assumed his best XI is without his summer signing.
A bold move but one that could round off this Arsenal side in January.
