Arteta reportedly came out clear when asked about the whereabouts of the team’s progress, basing on the recent unpromising displays. According to him Arsenal is still in dire need of experience and consistent superstars even after securing the services of the sensational Ghanaian all-round midfielder Thomas Partey from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, and the Brazilian central defensive outfit Gabriel Magalhaes from the French Ligue 1 side Lille.
According to talkSPORT speculations, the Spaniard manager is trying as much as he can to bring in defensive reinforcements and midfield machinery in the January transfer window, but he needs to shake off some of the players either by loaning them or by permanent transfers before achieving that objective. The Spaniard boss claimed that the Emirates stadium is full of academy starlets, who need more developments in order to be world-class, and they are more likely to go on loan in January or during the summer window market.
According to the exclusive reports by The Telegraph journal, several Arsenal’s bench players have been lined up to face the axe from the Emirates stadium, some being the prominent names that could not be talked of even. Recently, it came to the attention of the Telegraph podcast when Eduardo hinted that some vocal names have already been sidelined, and are below the manager’s redline. The surprised name on the hint was the Swiss captain Granit Xhaka.
It sounds unfortunate though, but is like the manager has been already fed up with the services of this Swiss international, and he just needs a new face. Even recent public reports talked of a potential swap between Xhaka and the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ericksen, and it might be a silent plot that is still in the oven cooking.
The fans usually feel to be accepted and part of the system when the Spaniard boss talks of further bolstering of the squad, but it can’t go well when the most dependable superstars are mentioned of exiting the North London colney. The fans might have seen the player as a potential remedy for the team if given trust by the manager, but seeing him on the verge of unnecessary transfer from the London screens enslave their morale. Let’s hope Xhaka is a Gooner to stay for more years.
