Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already got an over crowded attacking midfield department in his team at the moment.

The North London club have stars like Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi, Alexis Sanchez, and German superstar Mesut Ozil. Even some other stars like Ramsey, Perez and Cazorla can also play in the attacking midfield.

So, it is not expected that the French boss should sign another playmaker yet, but should agree new deals with both Ozil and Alexis.

Nevertheless, it was reported by Daily Mail that Arsenal will challenge Manchester United to sign Antoine Griezmann next summer (we covered the report, you can read it here).

Griezmann is agreed to be one of the best playmakers in the world and he has a release clause of £85Million in his contract. This season so far, he has netted 8 goals and provided 4 assists for his Spanish club.

Since the French international is capable of playing anywhere in the attack, it is obvious that he will improve Arsenal’s attack. And we can imagine if the trio of Griezmann, Alexis and Ozil were played in the attacking midfield in Arsenal.

Arsenal are not known to spend very heavily to sign players, as does by other EPL teams like Man United, Man City, and Chelsea.

The Daily Mail already hinted that any one who will get him should be expecting to pay him over £250,000-a-week. So if he should come to Arsenal, he will become the highest paid player in the club.
