Arsenal maintain their four points lead over Chelsea in the Barclays premier league but Liverpool defeat to Hull mean that Reds are now 7 points behind gunners.
Arsene Wenger’s side are flying high and with injured players returning, expect their brilliant run to continue.
Their depth is fantastic especially in the central and attacking midfield. When you face selection dilemma between Flamini Ramsey Arteta and Wilshere and when your first choice winger Walcott is benched, you know you have got quality players all round.
Gunners still need to amplify the quality of their squad by signing in January if they are to win the premier league title after 10 long years when Invincibles did it.
The priority should be signing a prolific striker or someone who is versatile enough to play as forward as well as out wide.
For now, according to reports, Arsenal are in pole position and lead to sign another sensational German playmaker Juliax Draxler of Schalke in summer who has a release clause of €46m in his contract.
Renowned Journalist, Jan Aage Fjortoft who first broke the news that Ozil is going to Arsenal has revealed on twitter that Gunners are favorites for Draxler.
Not so long ago, Draxler himself claimed that Arsenal is an attractive club and he may as well be interested in a future move to Emirates.
“They (Arsenal) always have very young players, they play attractive football and that’s what I like.”
“You never know what happens – but Arsenal is a very, very nice team.”
Draxler plays at both flanks as well as centrally and this season, in 13 league appearances he has directly contributed in 6 goals for Schalke.
With other German stars like Ozil, Mertesacker and Podolski there, Arsenal can perhaps use that connection to lure the youngster next summer but will they be willing to pay a heavy sum again as they did for Ozil, we shall see.
