Who’s in and who should be out at your club.
This summer looks set to be very busy for most of the clubs in Premier League. Every club will be looking to improve their team for the start of next season in the hope that their summer transfer dealing will have a direct result on a better finish in the Premier League. Here is each clubs transfer plans for the summer, with who should come into each club and who should be sold.
Arsenal- Player In: Gonzalo Higuain
The Gunners narrowly finished in fourth place last season, needing a win on the final day of the Premier League season to help them finish above North London rivals Tottenham. For much of last season, many thought that the club would fail to reach the Champions League and lose out on it’s huge financial benefits but they made it eventually and reportedly have the biggest transfer budget in the clubs history to spend on players. One area where Arsenal were lacking last season was up-front. The Gunners sold star striker Robin Van Persie to rivals Manchester United and in losing the Dutchman they also lost most of their goals. Despite signing Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, the Gunners never replaced the prolific striker. That needs to be addressed this summer and it looks like Arsene Wenger has found his man in the form of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine has been heavily linked with the Gunners and is regarded as one of the best front-men in Europe. He scores plenty of goals and always seems to be in the right place at the right time to put the ball in the back of the net. If Arsenal are serious about winning the Premier League again they will need a proven goal scorer and Higuain is certainly that.
Arsenal- Player Out- Nicklas Bendtner
Bendtner arrived at Arsenal as one of the most highly rated young strikers in Europe and although there were moments of brilliance from the Dane, he was largely disappointing in an Arsenal shirt. He failed to start many games and when he did get an opportunity, he rarely produced against the best teams. The striker hasn’t played for Arsenal in two years, having been sent out on loan to Sunderland and then Juventus. He was just as disappointing at the Italian Champions, only playing in a handful of games and now looks set to leave Arsenal for good this summer. Bendtner has said that a host of clubs are interested in him and a move to German side Eintracht Frankfurt looks to be on the cards. Arsenal fans certainly won’t shed any tears when the Dane leaves the Emirates this summer.
