What Granit said after the debacle against Newcastle sounded like a lack of trust into Arsenal project. Maybe Arteta / Edu may want to go ahead.
That’s why signed Vieira and now want Lisandro Martinez. Both can do (maybe better) what Arteta demanded to Xhaka as n.8. Lisandro is very similar to Xhaka when has the ball. The way he treats, way he makes long balls, looks very similar.
Both could upgrade the left side of the team in terms of vision, passing, agility, mobility.
