Mikel Arteta has been able to do some good business in the just concluded summer transfer window but that could also cause a selection headache for him in the course of the season.

The North London outfit brought in Willian from Chelsea and Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille. The contracts of Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares were also made permanent while Thomas Partey joined the club on the tarsier deadline day.

Arsenal currently have a list of injured players and that could be returning anytime soon which means there will be enough options available for manager Mikel Arteta.

This, therefore, means that the Spanish boss will be having a lot of options available and that hints he is going to have some sleepless nights in choosing who plays for particular games.

Almost all positions for Arsenal now have two options and that means a lot has to be done by the former Man City manager in picking the best.

From the defence to the midfield and the attack can all boast of several options aside from the centre-forward that only has Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah aside from Gabriel Martinelli who is injured.

Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe, and Willian now have the wings to contend for as well as the centre-back that can boast of a number of names.
