3 Reasons Why This Ball Playing German Defender Is Made for Arsenal

Three reasons why Hummels is perfect for Arsenal

There have been rumours linking Borrusia Dortmund superstar Captain Mats Hummels to Arsenal. Arsenal are in dire need of a top central defender as they lack depth in defence. Mats Hummels is a proven world class player who’s currently playing in a struggling Dortmund side. Here are three reasons why Arsenal can really get the best out of their team if they sign Hummels.

Mats Hummels

1. He is a technical center back.

Hummels is good with the ball as he can pick out passes from defence and look to start attacks from the back. Arsenal want to play a positive brand of football and prefer technical players in their squad, and Hummels is a great example of a player who can bring back the quality of total football. This would enable Arsenal to use an out and out defensive midfielder, the types which are average technically as Hummels can offer a supply of offensive passes.
