The defending of the Arsenal team may be under the microscope of the football media at the minute after the Gunners shipped four goals in two games at the start of the new Premier League season, but as Arsene Wenger pointed out in his comments after the Stoke loss, it was not just the defence who were to blame for that defeat.
With Mesut Ozil not firing on all cylinders and with both Welbeck and Lacazette off colour up front the dominance we had of the ball did not bring us a goal, although many will argue that it would have but for an incorrect offside decision against our new striker.
However, I think we can all agree that another top class attacker would be a useful transfer addition and that is why I believe Wenger needs to make sure that Arsenal beat our EPL rivals Man United and Liverpool to the signing of Germany international Julian Draxler from PSG, with The Mirror reporting that he will move despite the denials from the French club.
The transfer fee is apparently not going to be too big either, with the report talking about something like £30 million for the talented German. If we can win this 3-way transfer battle, will it help Arsenal to get going and get back into title contention?
