This season has not lived up to the expectations of Arsenal and their fans, especially after a change of management and the addition of several players. In a disappointing end, they finished fifth and lost in the Europa League final. Means no Champions League for Arsenal next season.
The results of the 2018-19 season show Arsenal need a major overhaul, while some players are past their prime and others don’t fit Emery’s style of play. There are many positions that need to improve next season in order to end Arsenal’s woes.
In the midst of a situation like this, the Gunners need young blood whose style of play is still easy to build. Arsenal must not only bring in new players, but they must also bring in their young players next season. That’s one of Arsenal’s responsibilities, which is known to often publish young stars. The following three players have the potential to get a lot of playing time in the 2019-2010 season:
Only a few positive things from Arsenal in the final match in Baku, one of which is their young player Willock. In a match where famous names such as Aubameyang and Ozil sank, he even showed his light. Willock has only played 15 minutes, but he has already shown what he’s got, composure, pace and keen eye. The most interesting moments when he pulls in some Chelsea defenders will create space for his team-mates. The moves are smart.
Ozil’s prime is past and Aaron Ramsey has moved to Juventus, so there is a role in midfield that is vacant, a very important position with Unai Emery’s 3-5-2 formation. Willock can fill that void both from the bench and starting.
Scoring a late winner at home is a dream debut for every footballer, but few can make it happen, Nketiah being one of them.
The young forward came on in the 85th minute and scored a brace against Norwich City in the Carabao Cup that Arsenal fans instantly remembered. Since then the young England striker has made several appearances in the first team and has impressed many and he has done well with the U23s too. During the 2018-19 season Nketiah scored 9 goals and 4 assists from 10 matches. And he already scored his first Premier League goal against Burnley.
The duo Aubameyang and Lacazette are indeed good, maybe Nketiah will not be a regular starter. However he can see Danny Welbeck who can make a big impact off the bench.
Since the departure of Alexis Sanchez the winger has become Arsenal’s concern. Players like Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi are expected to fill that void, unfortunately they haven’t been that good overall.
That’s one of the reasons Arsenal have been linked with the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Nicolas Pepe
