Arsenal senior players Mile Arteta,Mathieu Flamini and also Tomas Rosicky are set to leave the club at the end of this season and Arsene Wenger is already
preparing for the upcoming situation by making suitable reinforcements and has signed 23 year old Mohamed Elneny from FC Basel for a fee of £5m.
This is seen as an indication that the ageing central midfielder of Arsenal might be off-loaded this summer to bring in a fresh look to the team.
Arteta has found less playing time since the last two seasons due to his constant injury struggles and has featured 8 times this season.
On the other hand, Rosicky is entering his 10th year with Arsenal and is a loyal servant, having notched up 245 appearances across all competitions and
has not been able to start for a single game this season due to some injuries.
The star player is a favourite at the Emirates but it is less likely that he will help Arsenal’s cause in the long run from now onwards considering that he is
aged at 35.
Flamini is having quite a decent show in his second spell at Arsenal and is brilliantly covering up the absence of Francis Coquelin in recent weeks and has
started 7 times out of the last 8 premier league games.
He has been aggressive and has made his physical presence felt by winning 67% of the deals and also with a pass completion of 88% this season!
The Frenchman has turned out to be reliable and Arsenal need not be in a hurry to off-load the player since he is working out to be a success for Wenger’s
plans this season.
Having already made a solid signing in Alneny, Wenger would be keen to prise out any other players who would help Arsenal in their run to the Premier
league title this season.
