Kudos must go to Arsenal’s board of directors ; Sporting director Sven Mislintat and Unai Emery for how they have been actively involved in the ongoing transfer market.
For the first time in a very long time, the Gunners have completed five signings within 30 days and that could be a sign that greater things are set to happen at the Emirate Stadium — maybe winning the Premier League trophy next season.
As much as Unai has tried to upgrade the quality of players in his squad, he still has to get one player, whose qualities and work-rate seems to be missing in the team.
This player is no other person but Thiago Alcantara, who is valued at £54m by transfermarkt.
The Bayern Munich midfielder is one player who has a very high reputation when it comes to creating goalscoring chances for his teammates.
Despite his obvious qualities, the Spaniard wasn’t given much first-team actions at the Allianz Arena stadium since he joined the team from Barcelona.
The 27-year-old is a good passer of the ball, his long-range passes are one factor that will surely be needed by Emery’s team in the coming season.
He can play in any position at the middle of the pitch, therefore, he would form a great partnership with Mesut Ozil and new boy Lucas Torreira should he eventually move to the North Londoners.
