This window has seen a stark difference from Arsenal than the other times. The North London outfit seem more than willing to spend cash in order to bring the best players to their team and compete for the Premier League title.
And one of them is Thomas Lemar. The versatile winger was one of the key components of Monaco’s great last season and has announced himself to the scene with a bang. However, Monaco’s insistence on keeping him is hindering the deal for the Gunners.
And here are 5 players they should look for instead,
This is the other Ryad, and he is from Algeria. Boudebouz plays in France for Montpellier and was one of the best players in the league last season. Like Lemar, he is left-footed and is a bundle of creativity. He has the ability to find channels and the guile to make the final pass.
He might not be as big-name as the Monaco man, but he could surprise fans with his talent.
