Arsenal have well suffered in the goals department this season when it comes up to that lone central striker scoring the goal. With all due respect ,Giroud is a very good striker with an exceptional technique , acrobatics and strength. But sadly he has not lived up to the reputation of our departed man RVP, who still continues to score when he wants to. So with current crop of Arsenal players doing enough to get on the score sheet ,week in week out , its definitely going to be a hard thing in future. Also the defense seems just not to cope with itself in case of change of pairs. They just don’t seem to click .
Arsenal do have many young talents already in their youth structure but we have seen in the past players leaving for new pastures with lack of playing time and its all because Arsenal of its rich history demands results sooner rather than latter.
That way its difficult though, but still there are some gems Arsenal would love to have them at Emirates at all costs for their exceptional talent.
1. Artem Dzyuba – Nicknamed “The Russian Bear”, this boy is the next big thing in Russian football for his strength, speed, reactions and most importantly his goal scoring abilities. He currently plays in the Russian Premier League for FC Spartak Moscow. Standing at 6’5 inch tall , Dzyuba is a perfect man for that lone striker position. Also he has got a great positional sense and is a fox in the box. Often described as the Russian Ibrahimovic , Dzyuba is really top quality striker and under Wenger’ guidance , he can be the best as well just like RVP .
2. Maxime Gonalons – Maxime Gonalons is a French football player who currently plays for French club Olympique Lyonnais in Ligue 1. A graduate of the Olympique Lyonnais youth academy, he plays as a defensive midfielder. Standing at 6’2 ,he would not only be a good capture in the heart of midfield but also will be able to fill up the CB position in case of crisis. He has got an excellent ability to read the game very quickly, and also makes fine interceptions. His physical attribute further assists to his work and in doubt he would certainly provide a superb cover for our back four. And being a French international ,he would fit in to our squad more easily .
3. Danilo Luiz da Silva- Danilo Luiz da Silva or simply Danilo (born 15 July 1991 in Bicas, Brazil) is a Brazilian footballer who plays as right back or midfielder for Porto. Just over 6′ , Danilo in no doubt would be a perfect replacement for the outgoing Bakary Sagna . The Brazilian is just what gunners need, not only he would provide an extra height in set-pieces but also he possess an excellent sprint and is eager to join up in attacks. Alongside attacking, his speed allows hi to track back well when needed and has an extra gift of long range scoring abilities like Barcelona’ Dani Alves . No doubt ,if purchased he would be a hit at Emirates.
4. Kurt Zouma - Kurt Zouma (born 27 October 1994) is a French footballer who plays for Saint-Étienne in Ligue 1 as a central defender. Don’t get swayed away by his age , he is an excellent reader of the game and very talented when it comes to defending the set-pieces. Muscularly built , excellent reader of the trajectory of passes, and at 6’2 he provides a genuine aerial threat . He is very good at the interceptions , and can hold players off the ball with his God given strength . He is really a talent worth take a look at and just needs a few modelling to change into a next Raphael Varane .
5. Jannik Vestergaard- Jannik Vestergaard (born 3 August 1992) is a Danish professional footballer of partly German descent. He currently plays as a defender for Bundesliga side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. Standing at 6’6 ,almost similar in height to our German giant Per Mertesacker , Jannik is one of the hottest property of European football. Its not just his height , but his ability to read the game and timely challenges that has made him a very influential figure in the Hoffenheim back line . He can be a decent addition given his aerial presence both in defense and in attacks. He is very quick to react and can jump high enough and is a strong header of the ball , no nonsense defender . It would be a surprise if Arsenal do bag him, but given his lack of experience at top flight , his acquisition may dwindle. But he would definitely be a long term replacement for Mertesacker , providing that same aerial presence at the back.
