Arsenal boss Wenger: Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang can recreate BVB success

Arsene Wenger

It is indicative of where English football finds itself in 2018 that Arsène Wenger, the single biggest bulwark against the game's 21st century financial explosion, should declare Mesut Özil's new £350,000-per-week contract Arsenal's "cheapest option" in regards to a playmaker.

But Wenger believes sourcing a replacement for Ozil - who had entered the last six months on his previous contract - would have proven costlier. "When you let a player go you have to buy somebody of the same calibre and if you add the wages needed it will be similar", he said.

The deal was announced after drawn-out negotiations with Dortmund over the transfer fee.

And former Liverpool FC defender Carragher has admitted that he is yet to be convinced by the midfielder, who has scored one goal and made four assists in the Premier League so far this season.

Tuesday's address will be Trump's first State of the Union address and his second speech to Congress since becoming president. Trump's drive for more reciprocal trade with China and other countries is also expected to be a dominant theme.

"We're delighted to announce that Mesut Ozil has signed a new long-term contract with us", the club confirmed via their official website. On the other side, all of our players are well paid.

If Jack Wilshere is deemed fit for Arsenal's clash with Everton on Saturday it remains to be seen whether Arsene Wenger will opt to star Xhaka or instead pair the England worldwide with Aaron Ramsey in midfield.

Aubameyang, however, faces a late fitness test for the match at the Emirates Stadium due to being ill over the past couple of days.
