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.
After 18 league games, Arsenal are currently 3rd in the league with 40 points. This time last season, the Gunners were 1st with 71 points.
The Premier League is even tougher now and the Gunners manager Arsene Wenger must reinforce his squad next month if we are going to finish in the top four.
In the summer transfer window, the French manager lured Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna and the Spanish international has been highly inconsistent this season.
Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha a versatile playmaker has been in top form for the relegation threatened Eagles this season. Zaha has featured in 17 league games for Palace, scored 3 goals and provided 8 assists.
Wilfried is expected to leave for the AFCON next month but as per the provided Guardian link, his absence may not stop Arsenal from offering a deal worth 30 million pounds ($37million) to secure his signature.
It will be intriguing to see whether new boss Sam Allardyce would allow such a move but Gunners have to splash the cash and hire his services next month.
Zaha is a perfect fit for Wenger’s starting XI and can form a top quality attacking midfield lineup with the likes of Iwobi and Ozil behind lone forward Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud.
