The performances that teams from the Premier League have put up in Europe lately have been, in a nutshell, unacceptable, given the caliber of the top teams like Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, the two Manchester giants, and to some extent, Tottenham Hotspur.
It goes without saying that the PL is home to some of the best players in the world of football, but their inability to make it to the FIFA Team of the Year does not justify their quality. Hence, every team needs to flex their financial muscles and rope in some important players. Here, we’re going to look at that ‘one’ position that the six best teams in England can work on and we’ll try to find the solution to that problem.
Every gunner has at some point whined about not having a charismatic presence in the middle of the park, something they’ve missed ever the departure of Patrick Vieira. However, Francis Coquelin is a decent holding midfielder to have, and therefore, what Arsène Wenger needs more urgently is a striker.
- OUR CHOICE : Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 26, Borussia Dortmund, Gabon
Aubameyang has established himself as a trustworthy goal-scorer, and he has the ability to tear defences apart with his breathtaking pace. BVB would not want to lose the services of the African POTY, but a bid around 45 million pounds might as well do the trick.
- BEST ALTERNATIVE : Paulo Dybala, 22, Juventus, Argentina
Dybala has scored more often than any other player in the Serie A this season for the old lady and that proves his quality, given that this is his first season at Juventus. He has brilliant ball controller and has a real eye for goal, and at 22, he’ll only get better. 40 million pounds, and Juve might consider it.
