4-2-3-1 Formation: How Arsenal Will Line Up With New Signing Riyad Mahrez

Arsenal’s willingness to bolster their attacking line  has seen them prepared a 41million pounds deal for Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez, per reports.

In the Premier League, Arsenal are known to be the most fluid team whose football ideology is built on ball retention and creative.

In previous seasons, the Gunners are known to line up in a 4-3-3 formation. Should the deal for Riyad Mahrez through, we are likely to see a distortion in that formation to accommodate  most of Arsenal’s star studded midfielder.

Petr Cech is sure to retain his position in-between the sticks for Arsenal – He will oversee a defensive quartet of Hector Bellerin on the right, Monreal in left back and a centre-back pair of Gabriel and Koscielny.

With the Acquisition of Xhaka The decision for who will play in the midfield might be a tough one for Wenger but that his duty. Xhaka and Cazorla might anchor the midfield and in their front will be the creative power of  Sanchez, Ozil and Mahrez.

Unless a striker is bad than worse that is when he is unlikely to be poaching goals with reckless abandon with the calibre midfielders Arsenal have.
