Arsenal are making desperate attempts to save their league race this season and one of their sought-out solutions is the recalling of Nikolaj Moller from Viktoria Koln. The 22-year-old has not made an appearance for the Gunners since signing in 2019 and Arteta is taking a huge risk by including him in his plans for the next couple of games. Moller has always been on loan in various clubs as the club’s technical staff assess his readiness to join the senior squad but he is yet to prove that he can fit in Arteta’s squad.
Moller’s contract is due to expire in 2023 and it is believed that Arsenal will not renew his contract and will instead release him as a free agent. That means that if Moller wants to stay at the club for a longer period of time, he has to prove to Arteta and Co that he is worth the gamble in the next few matches that he is going to be involved in.
Moller is just one of the few Arsenal players that Arteta has recalled. Tyrese John Jules and Miguel Azeez have also been recalled from Northampton and Portsmouth respectively as Arteta seeks to assemble a stronger and more experienced reserve squad during the current squad crisis. It has not been confirmed whether Arsenal plan to recall other players from their loan spells but nothing is off the table at the moment.
Finding a perfect equilibrium will be very difficult but anything close to the squad’s first team would be openly welcomed. Fans are however distraught by Arteta’s recent transfer business where he has released Pablo Mari and Ainsley Maitland Niles on loan yet he knew very well that there was a shortage of players.
The next few matches are going to be against tough opponents on their home turf and that means that Arteta must use his tactical intelligence very well so as not to strain the first eleven players. Losing another player due to injury would be a big blow especially if it is a starting eleven player. All hands are on deck and the fans are desperately bitting their nails hoping that Arsenal will survive this turbulent time.
