Arsenal are missing a player that could drastically transform them into possible title contenders in the Premier League.
The Gunners last looked liked title contenders in the 2015/16 season were they finished second behind Leicester. Arsenal have not finished in the top four ever since that season and this season looks extremely unlikely.
Arteta and the club’s board must now be looking at the 2021/22 season and how to make it a successful campaign.
Spending some money to buy one or two quality players could do the trick and strengthen the team. One player that come’s to mind is Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.
Grealish has been a superstar for Aston Villa this season and also impressed for the England national team when summoned.
He is currently tied down to a long-term contract at Villa which he signed last year. Arsenal would have to release an enormous fee to persuade the Villa into a sale. We’re talking about Arsenal breaking their transfer record and signing the Englishman for over £100m.
But it would surely be worth it, the 25-year-old has racked up 6 goals and 10 assists in his 22 League appearances this season.
Grealish is able to play across the three attacking positions behind the main striker. He would slot into Arsenal’s No.10 position that has been vacant and in need of someone.
Arsenal’s big problems this season have been in the final third. Signing a player who creates tones of chances, racks up assists, scores goals and is Premier League proven would solve this issue.
Signing the “perfect” player in Jack Grealish would not only need Arsenal to break the bank but also convince the talented star to ply his trade at the Emirates stadium instead of a host of other teams who are knocking on his door.
