Kovacic, Benaga or Golovin all wanted but who should replace Wilshere at Arsenal
With Jack Wilshere no longer at the club and Arsenal in need of replacing the Englishman, here are three possible replacements who could fill the void of the Englishman.
The injury prone midfielder finally ended a seventeen year love-affair with the Gunners, which had more downs that ups during his professional career.
Once hailed as the future of the club, Wilshere sustained a number of injuries which hampered his career, and ultimately left him out in the cold.
He decided that a move away was the best thing for him, a fresh start to help reignite his love for football.
And the likes of Juventus, AC Milan, Liverpool, West Ham and Everton are just a number of clubs who could be interested in switch.
But despite news that the Gunners are closing in on deals for Banega and Torreira, the Gunners have a number of options to replace the midfielder.
1- Ever Banega.
This is an obvious one considering the Gunners ‘are holding positive talks’ with the players representatives about a move to England.
The Sevilla midfielder would not only bring experience at the highest level to the Emirates, but would bring class, leadership and a bit more creativity to the Gunners side that is lacking top-level performers.
He has already worked under boss Unai Emery at Sevilla, and been successful at it too, and knows just what type of football the Spaniard will want to employ at the Emirates.
And for just £20 million, absolute bargain.
2- Alexandr Golovin.
The little Russian is the same kind of player as Wilshere, with one added ingredient, pace.
Golovin is an exciting prospect that has been on the radar of the Gunners for a few months, with Arsene Wenger stating on a number of occasions just how impressive the playmaker can be.
His movement, ability to take on players, skill and his willingness to play early passes and keep the tempo high, would slot into the Gunners style of play without any trouble.
However, despite his impressive World Cup showings, there is a difference from playing for CSKA Moscow and Arsenal and he may find it difficult to adapt to the physical side of the Premier League.
At 24-year of age, Kovacic has seemingly been around the game of football for years and already has three Champions League titles under his belt.
He has the class, poise, stature and passing ability to run the show and be the ideal signing for the Gunners.
And the fact he has just announces he wants to leave Real Madrid in search of more first team action, he would be an absolute steal for the Gunners at £44 million.
