Our ‘friends’ down the road, as we all know, haven’t qualified to play with the big boys in europe this year and, sadly, will be playing in the Europa League.
So this is meaning such high class players like Gareth Bale and Luka Modric will be wanting to move away, and I think the latter should be looked at closely by Mr.Wenger.
There have always been links between the Croatian and Chelsea but despite the fact they won the Champions League they did finish three places below us in the league and have already lost their key striker this summer.
This season both Tomas Rosicky and Alex Song have been superb, Song especially has not received the credit for such an excellent campaign.
Arteta has had a good first season in a Gunners shirt, Aaron Ramsey has had an indifferent season, although has hard a lot of rather harsh criticism I feel as he gives his all every game.
But surely Modric would start over Ramsey and Arteta, his vision and range of passing combined with hard work and an eye for the goals would see hit fit perfectly into the Arsenal midfield.
His price range may be a bit high and Harry Redknapp probably won’t want him going to the better half of North London, but stranger things have happened.
Wenger, pursue this and we could be a real force next season.
