Following the arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan earlier in the window, and the departure of Alexis Sanchez, Wenger moved to strengthen his attacking department even further. The Armenian playmaker is still of a good age and has a chance to reinvent himself at Arsenal.

But fitting the PEA into the Arsenal pod could bring a fair bit of head scratching and puzzle solving for Arsene Wenger because the other options the manager has at his disposal. The former's similarity to Alexandre Lacazette instantly makes the Frenchman the most expensive substitute in the Premier League while the latter has just two full seasons of high-quality football to his name - 2013/14 and 2015/16 with Borussia Dortmund, hardly a ringing endorsement for a man of his age.

But the Arsenal faithfuls may have to wait to see their new striker in action, with the 28-year-old battling flu.

"He had a fever so he could not practice a lot - he started yesterday, was still not completely well".

"We had Jack [Wilshere] who was sick - I still have to assess him today".

And Wenger said: "First of all, let's not be fooled by reality - the financial attraction of the Premier League is superior to everywhere else and that attracts the best players".

"I believe we have to find an internal solution to our defensive problems, that's everyone putting more effort in".

"I have known him for a long time, he has played against Arsenal many times". Following the change, Arsenal went on to win the FA Cup with a 3-4-3 formation, overcoming Manchester City in the last four and then Chelsea in the final.

"Our defensive numbers aren't good enough", Wenger said on Friday during his pre-match press conference.

"We lost some goals because we lost [Alexis] Sanchez, Giroud and [Theo] Walcott who were our goalscorers".
