 The Gunners squad promises to have a drastic change after this year’s season ends.

Arsenal is “immovable” in the winter transfer window. However, the Gunners promise to experience an explosive summer market. Coach Mikel Arteta at this time planned to shop for the Emirates Stadium team.

Midfielders and strikers are two of Arsenal’s top targets. In the midfield, Arsenal suddenly had the opportunity to sign Paul Pogba. The French midfielder is about to expire and is likely to leave Man Utd on a free form.

 New couple in Arsenal midfield next season?

According to The Telegraph, Pogba is ready to listen to any offer, including those of Man Utd’s rivals in the Premier League. And Arsenal can seize the opportunity to show their huge ambitions next season.

With Pogba, Arsenal will have a quality midfielder in the central area. Coach Arteta prefers to use a 4-2-3-1 formation, and Pogba can completely partner with Thomas Partey in midfield. Even when needed, Arsenal can switch to 4-3-3.

In the second formation, Pogba will then act as one of the two “8s” in the squad along with Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian midfielder will now go back a bit deeper instead of kicking in the preferred “number 10” position.

In attack, Arsenal are paying attention to Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak. This player has a contract release fee of up to 90 million euros. Gunners can negotiate to recruit Isak for a more reasonable price.

Isak will definitely kick the highest on Arsenal’s attack. Supporting him on the right flank will be Bukayo Saka. On the opposite flank, Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe will compete for a starting spot.

 Arsenal can switch to 4-3-3 when needed.

The defense has not changed much when Aaron Ramsdale is still a reliable stopper in the wooden frame. The defender quartet will be the presence of Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and Kieran Tierney.

In general, with the above 2 signatures, Arsenal’s squad has a significant upgrade. Coach Arteta is in the process of completing Arsenal and next season is most likely the time for the Emirates Stadium team to really make a makeover.

With Pogba, his level is unquestionable, and can be of great help to Arsenal. It is important that coach Arteta needs to create an environment for Pogba to freely display his talents.
