A £37 million deal for Riyad Mahrez is reportedly edging closer while Arsenal are also in the running to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.

If Arsene Wenger decides to loosen the purse strings and splash out on the two attacking stars, how good could Arsenal be?

Is this team good enough to win the league? Looks like it.

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech

An absolute rock between the sticks. Easiest decision Wenger will make all season is making the former Chelsea man the first name on his teamsheet.

Right-Back: Hector Bellerin

The Spanish speedster can be defensively suspect at times but his attacking prowess is enough for him to take this spot. At just 21, still has plenty of time to develop into a strong full-back.

Centre-Back: Laurent KoscielnyMustafi

Dependable and solid at the heart of defence, Laurent Koscielny will likely be the Gunners’ captain come the start of the season.

Centre-Back: Per/Shkodran Mustafi


Following Per Mertesacker’s long-term injury, Arsenal are reportedly looking to sign Shkodran Mustafi in an attempt to sure up the often shaky defence. The Valencia man is a superb replacement, an upgrade even. His arrival would transform the North London side into an almost-unbeatable side.

Left-Back: Nacho Monreal

Highly rated by some sections of the fans, Monreal is not without his faults but comfortably takes his place in the team.

Defensive Midfielder: Granit Xhaka

This is where the team starts to look really good.

Arsenal’s new boy looks like a fantastic piece of business and appears to be exactly what the fans have been demanding for so long. A midfield hardman.

Box-To-Box Midfielder: Aaron Ramsey

The marauding Welshman is a fan favourite at the Emirates and rightfully so. Top class player in so many ways.

[tie_slide]

Right Wing: Riyad Mahrez

A sensational deal for last season’s player of the year is reportedly edging ever closer. The Algerian could be a title-winning addition.

Number 10: Mesut Ozil

Just about the easiest decision all day.

Left Wing: Alexis Sanchez

On his day, the Chilean is simply unstoppable and with the newfound quality around him, he could elevate himself to the top tier of world football.

[/tie_slide]

[tie_slide]

Striker: Alexandre Lacazette

Lacazette will, should he sign, usurp his compatriot Olivier Giroud and instantly transform the Gunners into title favourites.

The Team

That team on paper is more than capable of winning the league. Whether or not they can remains to be seen.
