Arsenal and the prospects of a push for the top four next season

It seems to be the same question ahead of every Premier league season and whether Arsenal can finish within the top four and ultimately get back into the all-important Champions league. The current betting odds has the side at a general 11/2, which really gives an idea of the slump of Arsenal in recent years and overall, how competitive the top four battle is each season.

You now have to go back to the 2015/16 season where Arsenal did finish in the top four and this was a second placed finish behind surprise winners Leicester City but since it has certainly been seasons of frustration for the side.

Looking at last season for example and it turned out to be a very poor season from Arsenal, with many of the leading players in the squad failing to fire and having a clear dip in form, which ultimately led to the finishing position of the side. Arsenal finished 8th of the 20 sides and were just six points from finishing in the bottom half of the table. This is so far behind what would be expected from the side, as they were really looking to build on a positive finish to the previous season. Arsenal finished with 61 points from their 38 matches played, that included 18 wins, seven draws and a further 13 losses. This performance is why they are the odds of 11/2 to finish in the top four, but they still have many quality players, so they will be hoping they can defy these odds and get back to Champion’s league football, through a top four finish.

The big question now is how the side will perform next season and much of this could come down to how and if they investment is being made to the squad. Ben White continues to be a player that appears to be heading to the Emirates stadium and it now does look like it is a question of when, despite Chelsea joining the chase for the exciting 23 year old. Arsenal had also been reported to be in for Sergio Ramos, but this looks off the cards, as he is rumoured to have agreed terms with Paris Saint-Germain, since he left Real Madrid. Another two players who appear to have a solid chance of joining Arsenal are Nuno Tarares of Benfica and Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambia Lakonga. Hopefully both signings can be wrapped up and it would then look like a potential exciting season ahead for Arsenal.
