Is Arsène Wenger leaving Arsenal a sinking ship?

It has often been said about Arsène Wenger that no matter when he leaves Arsenal he will be leaving the club perfectly setup for his successor.

Increasingly, that moment looks as though it may well be upon us this summer and it is why now is a good time to assess whether Arsenal really is setup for whoever steps into Wenger’s shoes.

On the face of it, it would seem as though this is very much the case.

Every Arsenal blog you read this week should be about Oxlade-Chamberlain

And why not? He’s come into a position he has very little top level experience in at a time we really need someone to give us a new option and has excelled in so many different ways.

Chamberlain came through the much heralded Southampton youth academy playing in a more central role to what we’ve seen him play so far at Arsenal. His performance against Manchester United in the 2011 FA Cup was one of the first showings of his potential. Drifting in and out of a team of top class players with speed and guile. A lot of teams took real notice of him that night, namely Arsène Wenger who spent £12m to take him to the Emirates 6 months afterwards.

What Arsenal’s January could have been

At the end of the transfer window, we asked our master at spying young talent to name three youngsters that could help out our first XI in positions we need.  Not only has Drew picked out three gems, but also we’ve added the relevant Youtube scouting videos so you too can see what all the hype is about – OG.

Ah yes, the transfer market. No other period on the football calendar both excites and frustrates fans the world over. January is even worse. By the midway point of the campaign in Europe, the first month of the year is the perfect time to evaluate your first-team, and potentially invest in reinforcements or replacements.

Over the years, Arsenal have, well, had interesting dealings during the thirty-one-day period. Mohamed Elneny last season, and Nacho Monreal in January 2013 stand as probably the best bit of January business we have done in recent seasons, while moves for Gabriel and Krystian Bielik in January 2015 have been decent. But on the strength of it, Arsenal have never really splashed January cash (insert whatever reason you subscribe to as to why here) to genuinely push the club forward during that current season, or ones to follow. Elneny has been quite good, and Monreal was consistently one of the top left-back’s in the Premier League, but neither have had such an impact on results that have seen us kick on to achieve what we’ve all been dreaming of.

After a disappointing weekend, and two losses on the bounce, we find ourselves in fourth place. Despite the handful of frustrating performances this season, we have had some good spells this campaign.  With the recent shutting of the January transfer window though, I find myself wondering what transfer moves we could have made that could have helped in our challenge both domestically and in Europe. Here are three that I have surmised could have done just that.
