Arsenal currently possesses one of the deadliest attack in the world with Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Danny Welbeck and Lacazette all playing for the Gunners.

Despite having such firepower in their ranks, it is unbelievable that the Gunners are under pressure to qualify for next season’s Champions League competition as they occupy the sixth position in the Premier League table.

Unlike their attacking prowess, Arsenal have been awful at the back. Right from the goalkeeping department to the defensive midfield position haven’t been doing well since the start of the season.

Petr Cech appeared to be affected by his age as he concedes easily unlike his days at Chelsea.

Mertesacker is also becoming too old to cope with Premier League’s intensity and physical-demanding playing style.

In his bid to end his team’s uninspiring defensive display, Arsene Wenger still is said to make a move for Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly in the summer.

The Senegalese defender is set to cost Wenger a sum of £40m as he is highly-rated by the Serie A powerhouse.

After failing to convince West Brom to release their veteran defender Jonny Evans in the winter transfer window, Arsenal Wenger will be hoping he successfully completed a move for Koulibaly ahead of next season.
