Manchester City and Liverpool have raised the standard for winning the Premier League title in recent seasons.
Now that the two sides are locked in another battle for English football’s top prize, Micah Richards has claimed that City and Liverpool are the strongest sides in league history… even better than Arsenal’s Invincibles.
A place in the elite of the Premier League is where Mikel Arteta wants to wear his Gunners outfit.
Recruitment during the Spaniard’s tenure has generally been good and the club are reportedly interested in taking the services of Dutch striker Noa Lang from Club Brugge.
And it promises to be a crucial summer for the Gunners as a number of players are out of contract in June – most notably Alexandre Lacazette, who club legend Alan Smith is still hoping will stay in north London beyond the summer.
Here are Mirror football latest arsenal headlines.
Richards ranks the current top 2 over Invincibles
Micah Richards has claimed that the current fight for the First League Title includes the two strongest teams in the history of the competition.
City icon Richards, who was part of the team that won the title in 2012, believes the two title challengers are stronger than anyone else Manchester United Teams built by Sir Alex Ferguson, or the arsenal side that went undefeated Arsène Wenger.
Arsenal ‘interested’ in Noa Lang
The focus for Arsenal in the summer transfer window will be central midfield and forward positions.
Football.london understand Mikel Arteta is eyeing those areas among a range of expected signings aimed at more than three players arriving.
With that in mind, Arsenal will certainly see players in other areas of the squad.
One position that has consistent connections with a variety of players is wide forward. Netherlands international Noa Lang is a name that has been resurfacing lately.
Alan Smith on Lacazette and the captaincy
One word that best sums up Arsenal under Mikel Arteta is change.
The Spaniard has almost revamped the squad, banning big earners and replacing them with young, hungry talent like Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka and new signings Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale.
Most recently, the Gunners manager made the biggest decision of his tenure: dropping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and terminating his £350,000-a-week contract after stripping him of the captaincy.
Alexandre Lacazette has been given the armband but that appears to be only a temporary measure as his contract expires at the end of the season. However, Alan Smith is hoping he stays at the club.
