No more midfield signings for Arsenal
No more midfield signings for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal have a ‘solid’ midfield now after the addition of Granit Xhaka ahead of the upcoming season.

Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky, and Mikel Arteta all have left the Gunners this summer, raising some serious doubts over the squad’s depth in midfield but the French manager remains quite confident in numbers.

The inclusion of Xhaka, as well as both Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla returning from injuries, seem to have convinced Wenger that no further midfield reinforcements are necessary for the time being .

“Xhaka brings his passing ability to play through the lines from deep positions, his work rate, and he’s good in the air,” Wenger told Arsenal.com.

“He’s a young boy as well, 23 years old. There’s a lot to come from him. We lost three midfielders: Flamini, Rosicky, and Arteta, and numbers-wise we are quite solid in midfield now.

“Elneny had a big impact when he came here, Coquelin was injured for a long time and is back. Cazorla will come back, Wilshere is back… so we are solid in midfield.”

The Swiss star joined up with his team-mates for the first time on Thursday following his £35million move from Borussia Monchengladbach earlier in the summer.

And youngsters like Gedion Zelalem are expected to make the step-up to the first-team as a replacement.

It’s believed Arsenal are focusing their attention on attacking targets, with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Alexandre Lacazette, and Mauro Icardi being heavily linked with the north London club over the past few weeks.
