Arsenal aim to stay in the race for the Premier League title and, as reports in England suggest, the experienced tactician has a new midfielder on his radar.
Over the years Arsenal have established themselves as a top-table side in the Premier League, but it has been 13 years since the capital club lifted their last domestic trophy.
Fans are hungry for trophies, but coach Arsene Wenger need to add several top-class players to the squad in the January transfer window if the Gunners are to keep their hopes of winning the title alive.
Santi Cazorla’s contract expires in June, 2017 and considering that future of Alexis Sanchez is a bit uncertain, Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on signing Paris Saint Germain attacking midfielder Lucas Moura. Arsenal failed to bring Wolfsburg ace Julian Draxler to Emirates Stadium, but Moura would be a great signing for the capital club as well.
Julian Draxler joined the Parc des Princes outfit in the January transfer window, meaning that les Parisiens should be willing to let go of Lucas Moura, who signed for PSG in a deal said to be worth £38 million deal back in 2012.
Arsenal chiefs have already opened talks with the Brazilian footballer according to the Express, but it remains to be seen if the former Sao Paulo man is going to join the Premier League club in days to come.
Lucas Moura is a player who is definitely capable of helping Arsenal improve their game, but I believe that the club owners need to sign a world-class attacker if they are to stay in the race for the Premier League title.
Olivier Giroud has found his goal-scoring touch of late, but it is well known that the French forward has been having his ups and downs ever since he joined the Emirates Stadium outfit.
As reports in England suggest, many Arsenal players believe Alexis Sanchez wants to leave the club as “El Nino Maravilloso” is hungry for trophies and the club management need to act quickly if they are to persuade the Chilean footballer to stay at Emirates Stadium.
Anyhow, Lucas Moura would be a great signing for Arsenal, but if Alexis Sanchez leaves the club in January, the Gunners would have slim chances of winning the domestic trophy.
You should bear in mind that Moura has netted 11 goals for PSG in all competitions so far this season. His contract with the Ligue 1 champions expires on June 30, 2019.
