How Arsenal could line up with Aubameyang & Mkhitaryan

The north Londoners signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United and Aubameyang from Dortmund to strengthen the team in the winter transfer window.

The London club bolstered their forward line by signing the Gabon worldwide from Borussia Dortmund for a club-record fee on Wednesday but Aubameyang, 28, did not fully participate in Thursday's training session due to a fever.

"If he had played in the Premier League, the Bundesliga would be a good challenge".

"I have known him for a long time, he has played against Arsenal many times".

Asked if he regretted not signing a defender, the Frenchman conceded: "Yes, because our defensive numbers are not good enough".

The Premier League is the richest of all European leagues thanks to huge TV revenue, and Arsenal broke their transfer record sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for £56 million this week.

Wenger also tasked Mesut Ozil to take on the leadership role in the team following he exit of Alexis Sanchez.

Aubameyang is expected to be unveiled as an Arsenal player just hours before the transfer deadline later this Wednesday. Having failed to add any players in this area, while adding yet more faces up front, Arsenal's squad is more lopsided than ever. Aubameyang was sick as well so we have to assess him today.

Despite the buzz around the new recruits, being eight points behind the top four has led to some Arsenal supporters organising a pre-match protest ahead of the Everton clash as they call on both Wenger and majority shareholder Stan Kroenke to leave.
