Arsenal desperately need to sort out a number of contracts or risk losing vital players for absolutely nothing. Either sort the contracts or cash in on them in January. Sanchez, Ozil and Wilshere all expire in the summer 2018 and are then free to move elsewhere on a free transfer. Beyond these contracts, Arsenal still need to get some strength in defence. Inconsistency in Wenger’s selections do not help Arsenal. Summer signings, £47 million man Lacazette is still being looked over at times and Kolasinac, who has been showing fine form when he is played is still not a regular starter.
Thomas Lemar of Monaco, a possible replacement for the potentially outgoing Alexis Sanchez, has fuelled speculation he is on his way to London by liking a recent Instagram post stating ‘Welcome to Arsenal’.
