Arsenal have endured a difficult summer this year and after their drubbing at Old Trafford, Arsene Wenger did bring in some experienced players like Per Mertesacker, Yossi Benayoun and Mikel Arteta and have bolstered the depth in their squad.
They won their first game in the Premiership this season against Swansea and though they only managed a draw against Borussia Dortmund in Germany, it was a determined performance from the Gunners.
It is evident that Arsenal are in the middle of a transition phase after the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. Though they have brought in some players, they are likely to be active in the January transfer window as well. The Gunners have some exciting youngsters coming through the ranks, but for now they need some experienced quality players who can bring success to the club.
Arsene Wenger has a huge job this season in trying to turn around Arsenal's season and with the loss of two influential midfielders and also the injury to Jack Wilshere, it is clear that Arsenal have not had the best of games in midfield. This is a huge season for some Arsenal midfielders like Arteta and Aaron Ramsey, who will have an enormous role to play this season.
Arsenal do not seem to have the flair they had in the last few seasons, but with the new signings they look a more determined unit. If every single individual fights till the end, then Arsenal have a good chance to be in the Champions League next season.
Also, Wenger will be interested in adding to his squad this January and these are some of the latest rumors that have emerged recently regarding to Arsenal.
