Somehow, if we manage to pull off all 3 deals for Malcom, Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang that would sit nicely with me! I don't see all 3 happening to be honest, i reckon at most 1 of the deals will be completed. Aubameyang is a man who wants out just like Sanchez so maybe his attitude will calm at a new club? Who knows. A risk worth taking to get 2 or 3 seasons out of him when he's playing so well for Dortmund! let's hope we can seal this in January and focus defensively in the summer with a new GK also! #AFC :)

I like the idea of malcom giving us a bit of much needed width, but not sure about the others, as surely they all need to play through the same middle part of the pitch which is already occupied by any of Ramsey, Wilshire, Ozil, Xhaka, Iwobi, El neny, Lacca etc. We are already so narrow when attacking, so i don't see the point in signing more players who need to play through the same middle ground, unless of course you like seeing our entire attacking force occupying the same square foot of turf.

Occupied with inconsistent players that aren't good enough. Plus if Ozil leaves then Mkhitaryan is an ideal replacment in the number 10 role! Aubameyang can play out wide and has done before so wouldn't be that bad for him and with Sanchez leaving then he would fit right in again. Wenger has a habit of playing people out of their preferred positions so we shall see how it pans out!

The whole playing players out of their position is the main concern for me Glenn. Its like playing a front 3 with Welbeck playing as the left winger, it just doesn't work. I suppose the questions are that do you think if the Aubaloobabingbong rumour is true, he would want/ should play through the middle as the main striker, or would he be happy playing on the left? Where does he mostly play for Dortmund? Could he play alongside Lacca as a second striker, or if we do sign him as Sanchez's replacement for the left forward role, would we be better off going out and finding players who already play in that position more regularly, such as a Draxler or Lemar?

Exactly that. He plays through the middle for Dortmund but he has played in the wide position of a front 3 so i don't think it will be much of a problem for him! Its just how he would take it is the main thing. Minislat seems to think he's a the right man for the job so if he can convince him to sign then that would be good in my opinion. Playing 2 up top is something i also think would work which is something we haven't done since Bergkamp and Henry. However, that would leave us to a back 4 which we can't do yet with the defence we have! Miki in no.10, Front 3 of Aubameyang, Lacca and Malcom :)

And the kid wears a spiderman mask i mean come on! How awesome would that be wearing a spiderman mask in a red arsenal kit when he scores! haha!

Ha ha, that's true. Well let's hope if he comes we see a lot of that mask!
