Arteta's Transfer Remedy That Could Return Arsenal To Glory

Before Everton's clash, Mikel Arteta defended his selection, saying: "We made some changes today; we have to freshen up. We have some games coming up and I want to have everyone fit and available. "


Arteta's strategy of reshuffling his lineup for the Everton game in an attempt to solve Arsenal's vexing problem of failing to outscore their opponents did not work. Lacazette, like Aubameyang in recent weeks, failed to cause havoc in the opposition's defense, and Nketiah, who came off the bench, was not as sharp as his CV suggests. Arteta and Edu were reminded by Aubamayeng's last-minute missed opportunity that in a few weeks, they can decide their top four race by either signing a striker or dreaming of goals, as their attacking department continues to waste clear chances.

To be honest, Arsenal have been toothless up front in recent weeks. Their various number 9s are not performing to fans expectations, and if not for one or two goals from their midfielders, Arsenal's goal tally since the November international break would have been as poor as that of a relegation battle team.


Despite the fact that they spent £156 million on reinforcements over the summer, Edu, if he truly cares about Arsenal, will need to be bold in signing a reliable goal poacher in the January transfer window, or else Arsenal's rebuild will crumble before it even begins.
