Since his first day at the Emirates Stadium, new Arsenal manager Unai Emery has got down to business by ensuring a perfect relationship with the club’s sporting director Sven Mislintant.
His partnership with the experience director has produced massive results as they have already completed moves for Lichtsteiner from Borussia Dortmund, Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.
They are reportedly close to confirming Torreira and Sokratis Papastathopoulos’ signature as both of them are set for medicals on Monday while Caglar Soyuncu is also close to joining the former Sevilla manager.
Once all of these players are finally signed to the Emirates Stadium ahead of the upcoming season, it will be a huge headache for the former PSG manager on how to get the perfect formation that will bring the best out of his players.
Let’s quickly propose the formation Unai Emery could deploy in the 2018-19 season.
Unai Emery is known as a lover of 4-2-3-1 formation and he is likely going to continue with the same tactical approach at the Emirates Stadium.
In Goal, he would prefer Bernd Leno ahead of Petr Cech, who failed to live up to his billing last season.
Hector Bellerin will keep his place in the starting lineup, but he must up his game to cement a place at the left-back position.
Soyuncu, Sokratis and Lichtsteiner complete the back four.
N’zonzi — if he joins the Gunners and Michael Seri are going to provide maximum shield for the defenders.
Mesut will operate as a playmaker while Iwobi/Welbeck and Mkhitaryan complete the three midfielders.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will play as a lone striker. Meanwhile, Alexander Lacazette could come into games as a second-half substitute.
Leno ; Bellerin, Sokratis, Lichtsteiner/Maitland-Nile , Soyuncu ; N’zonzi / Ramsey, Michael Seri / Torreira ; Iwobi/ Welbeck ; Ozil, Mktarryan ; Aubameyang / Lacazette.
