The latest Arsenal rumbling in the gossip columns is that Arsene Wenger is looking to bring Granit Xhaka to the Emirates.
According to The Sun, the Gunners are willing to spend £33.7m to bring in the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder.
The obvious thought would be that the Swiss 23-year-old is set to replace the aging trio of Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky who look to be coming to the end of their Arsenal career.
However, a few of the younger members of Wenger’s squad need to be worried about this development.
The French manager is getting a lot of criticism from a section of Arsenal fans who continue to display banners calling for his dismissal.
One of the reasons these supporters are so annoyed with Wenger is his continued faith in young players he has helped developed.
The likes of Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continually get chances in the team regardless of their actual contribution and this has seen the Gunners stagnate.
Bringing in an expensive new signing shows Wenger has learnt his lesson and these three could see their position come into question should Xhaka head to north London.
The degree to which the young players Wenger has brought through have failed to deliver is particularly evident when you look at Theo Walcott.
Only Patrick Viera, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry have made more appearances under the French manager for the Gunners, with the England international stepping out on the pitch 336 times.
Those three club legends delivered several trophies to north London, while the 27-year-old winner only has two FA Cups and a Community Shield to his name.
The winger is no longer a young player who can get by in the squad due to promise, but is now an experienced member of the side and should be delivering the types of performances one would expect from someone in that position.
If the Xhaka deal truly is an indication that Wenger has learnt his lesson, then the England international would definitely be under threat.
