Huge blow: Arsenal Poor Decision Giving Mikel Arteta Selection Headache



Arsenal poor decision

 Arsenal poor decision to let Aubameyang leave for free during the January transfer window giving Arteta headache

Mikel Arteta did not have the best January transfer window in Arsenal history.

The Spaniard was only able to bolster his ranks with West Brom’s Lino Sousa and Colorado Rapids’ Auston Trust – two players who don’t exactly set hearts racing, with the latter having already been sent back out.

Arteta did, however, clear out some of Arsenal’s deadwood, albeit there are concerns that he went too far.

Arsenal has lost 14 players this month, either permanently or on loan, resulting in a lack of depth in the squad, which might be a concern if injuries strike in the second half of the season Arsenal poor decision will surely have effect on the team.

Apart from not being able to sign any of Dusan Vlahovic, Alexander Isak, or Arthur Melo, the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is rea biggest disappointment for Arsenal.

Indeed, things have become so bad that Arteta has removed him from captaincy, and he has been in and out of the first team for quite some time.

But, at the end of the day, he was Arsenal’s best striker until his permanent deal to Barcelona on Monday.

And Arteta’s failure to replace the former Dortmund star before parting ways with him could come back to haunt him.

Arteta currently possesses two forwards in Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah, both of whom have contracts expiring in June.

Arsenal’s last-ditch attempt to sign a striker on deadline day is thwarted by Liverpool.
Aubameyang’s departure is a financial hit as well as a loss regarding what he can do on the pitch.

The Gunners paid £56 million for the forward in 2018 before rewarding him with a new £350,000-a-week deal in 2020, a decision Arteta backed.

On Sky Sports, Shay Given described the decision to sell Aubameyang as “madness.”

He stated, ” “We discussed the fee. They paid £56 million to fire him, Aubameyang, and then let him go for free. It’s insane in any business, in some other world.”

Arsenal will argue that by terminating Aubameyang’s contract early, they have saved money by avoiding a replay of the Mesut Ozil problem.

However, Arsenal’s entire investment in discharging him on a free transfer was a poor one.

Arsenal poor decision make things worse at the club.
