With Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitting his side’s form in the big away games has cost them the title, should he be looking to sign proven midfield talent to finally turn his side from underdogs into genuine title-chasers?
Seville’s Ivan Rakitic should be a player Wenger has on his shortlist. The Croatian international has enjoyed a superb season on a personal note, scoring 12 goals and making 10 assists from midfield.
The 26-year-old has made 76 key passes this season, more than Arsenal’s chief creators Mesut Ozil (71) & Santi Cazorla (67). He’s created more goals for Seville than any Arsenal player this campaign, and will be reeling with his side having missed out on a Champions League place.
