Here we look at the full Arsenal squad for the 2018/19 season.
Arsenal FC Squad Targets 2017/18
In the 2017/18 season, Arsenal will look to get back into the Champions League. This summer, they must make some quality signings and try to keep hold of their star players. Many fans will want a change of manager, but if the mainstream media is to be believed, it seems as though Arsene Wenger will stay in his post and continue as manager for at least another season. His job for this season will be to prove to those sceptical fans that he is still the right man for the job, and that he is still a manager who can lead Arsenal’s to trophies and other glories.
Some of the new Arsenal players signed 2018 are well paid. Take a look at our list with Arsenal Players Salaries 2018 and you will see that who the highest paid Arsenal Players are during the 2017-18 season.

Many fans are calling for Arsene Wenger to leave, but Wenger has not given any hints about where his future lies. He has received criticism for not spending enough on the Arsenal FC squad by fans and pundits, despite making quite a few signings.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has already confirmed that this is his last season in the Premier League in Arsenal colours. His age is starting to show which is why Emery signed Bernd Leno as competition for Cech. The German custodian has taken over from the former Czech Republic international as the first choice goalkeeper, while Cech is set to be mostly used for games in the domestic cup and in the Europa League. Arsenal need a new keeper to fill in for the space that will be vacant after Cech’s departure at the end of the season.

The Gunners signed Stephan Lichtstenier from Juventus in the summer on a free transfer, and signed Sokratis from Borussia Dortmund to add some steel in the defence.

After signing Lucas Torreira in the summer transfer window from Sampdoria for around £24 million, the Gunners once again got themselves a great deal with the acquisition of Denis Suarez from Barcelona on loan until the rest of the season in the January transfer window. However, they are on the verge of losing one of their most trusted midfield mavericks in the form of Aaron Ramsey, who has signed a pre-contract agreement with Serie A champions Juventus and will join them at the end of the season on a free transfer.

Arsenal has seen a bit of a reshuffle in the attack as Alexis Sanchez and Giroud have both left. But they replaced them with Lacazette and Aubameyang. The fans were impressed with Danny Welbeck’s performances but an unfortunate injury is set to keep him out of action for the rest of the season.
