Arsenal were widely rumoured to land Pedro Rodriguez in January transfer window, but Arsene Wenger instead chose to bring down Gabriel Paulista to address the then ongoing defensive crisis.

According to Spanish media, Arsenal may well follow up their interest and bring down the Spanish international in summer.

Speaking to the press ahead of the Everton game tomorrow, Arsene Wenger divulged that Jack Wilshere will spend at least fourteen more days on the sidelines thanks to his recent setback in recovery.

Jack Wilshere seemed to be picking up form when he sustained an injury in late November following a Paddy McNair challenge and has not made an appearance for the Emirates Club since. The English midfielder was believed to have fully recovered and was an unused substitute at Selhurst Park last weekend, but is now facing a short layoff.

Influence of Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal was so profound that the British media branded them one-man-team easily rubbing off the contributions of Tomas Rosicky and the likes in the process. He has not become any less of a footballer, but for some unknown reasons, he has not lifted the lid on his goal drought of 474 minutes.

During the recuperation of Mesut Ozil, though the Gunners were left without a world-class player, Alexis was enjoying a fruitful period scoring goals at will. However, after the return of the German midfielder and Olivier Giroud, the former Barcelona marksman has apparently become shy in front of the goal.

Arsenal have reported a half-yearly turnover of about £148.5 million and despite bringing down an influx of players in Danny Welbeck, Alexis Sanchez and the likes, the Gunners reportedly have cash reserves amounting to 138.8 million. They have also paid off their Emirates Stadium debt and that leaves Arsene Wenger with a £50 million summer warchest.

Though it is hard to believe that a club like Arsenal will only have a warchest equal to what Chelsea paid for Fernando Torres, it looks more than enough when the quality of footballers at Emirates Stadium is taken into consideration.

Speaking ahead of the Everton game, Arsene Wenger had good news after a nightmarish display on Wednesday night as he stated that he is all but set to welcome Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini back after recuperating from their injuries.

The midfield duo picked up their respective injuries in a span of hours and was replaced by Francis Coquelin and Mesut Ozil in the line-ups. The Frenchman admitted that they are not parts of his plan for the next Premier League outing as he announced that they are not fit for first team action as of yet.
