It is rather a pity to think that a team which was once rightfully called the Invincibles, are now competing with their rivals for a top four spot. The status of the club has been reduced to “also ran” and almost all of their top players have decided to leave the club. It is high time that Wenger understands the depth of the situation and brings some players to Emirates who can change the fortune of the club.
1) Gonzalo Higuain– The 25 year old Argentine who currently plays for Real Madrid seems to have lost his gametime to Karim Benzema somewhat. Higuain belongs to a class of strikers who would want to play and dictate terms up front week in week out which is not possible for him in Spain. Therefore rumours have started about him wanting to leave his current team and look for greener pastures elsewhere. Arsenal, who are yet to find a true replacement of Van Persie should seize this opportunity and persuade him to come to England. Although he will not come cheap with an expected price of £ 20m, he will be a real quality purchase for the club taking their strike force to another level.
2) Lars Bender– The Bayer Leverkusen man has been one of the main reason for the club’s impressive show this season. He has played deep down, done the defensive job and also initiated the attack with his precise passes. Arsenal with all their defensive flaws this season, highly needs a defensive midfielder like him who can operate the game from deep. Wenger has already set his eyes on him and he will be a real capture for the club if they can bring him.
3) Asmir Begovic– He has been one of the best keepers of the Premier League this season and been one of the main reason for Stoke’s defensive resilience for a very long time. Arsenal, on the other hand, has stumbled in their first choice of keeper with both Szczesny and Fabianski making silly mistakes and costing the team points. Therefore Wenger must go for a keeper in summer and who better than Begovic at the moment?
