Here's Arsenal's potential team for the new season based on current players and possible signings.
Arsene Wenger has done great work in the transfer market this summer, but that hasn’t stopped the Gunners from being linked with further additions to their already impressive squad.
Arsenal definitely have a chance of success on all fronts heading into the new campaign and they boast one of the best attacking units in the Premier League, capable of taking apart any team.
Here’s how the Arsenal side could look for the start of the season.
GK – Wojciech Szczesny
Despite the undoubtedly positive arrival of David Ospina, Szczesny is likely to retain his place in the starting line-up.
RB – Mathieu Debuchy
There have been rumblings in Spain of a move for Alvaro Arbeloa, but Mathieu Debuchy should rest easy that he’ll start on the right hand side.
CB – Calum Chambers
Arsene Wenger has revealed that he doesn’t feel his German players, who were at the World Cup, will be fit for the new season, which could mean a chance for Chambers to play centrally in defence.
CB – Laurent Koscielny
The Frenchman should be smack bang in the middle of the back four to offer the experience and authority.
LB – Kieran Gibbs
Gibbs’ speed and pace on the counter attack will be important this season. He needs to tuck in and stay solid defensively when Arsenal are under pressure.
RM – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Theo Walcott continues to make an impressive comeback from injury but the Ox should get the nod on the right.
DM – Mikel Arteta
The experienced Spaniard is more than capable of stepping in, pulling the strings and controlling the space in front of his back four.
CM – Aaron Ramsey
Rambo was Arsenal’s stand out player last season and it will be a major surprise if he isn’t in the middle of the team.
AM – Santi Cazorla
Based on his quotes about his German players, Cazorla could be offered the number ten role and it’s down to him to ensure it’s difficult for Mesut Ozil to get back into the team.
LM – Alexis Sanchez
Sanchez played predominantly for Barcelona out on the left and he should start there. Expect to see him pressing forward and moving in centrally when the Gunners are on top.
ST – Olivier Giroud
Giroud is Wenger’s main man up front and there’s no sign of an imminent striker arrival coming in to replace him.
