Arsene Wenger really needs a boost in his team to ensure that Arsenal at least finish in the top 4. Currently they are not in the driving seat to ensure that they finish in the top 4 and without Champions League football next season, a lot of players could opt out from the Arsenal.
Arsenal announced the release of Lukas Podolski who has signed with Inter Milan and that leaves a massive void in the team since they don’t really have any good strikers apart from Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud. Everyone also knows about Arsenal’s defensive frailties and here we look at 3 players who have all the attributes preferred by Arsene Wenger – young, talented, relatively unknown, and may come cheap.
1. Virgil Van Dijk
The 23 year old Celtic defender has been one of their best performers over the last 2 seasons and even got a recent call up to the Dutch side. Van Dijk would be a great signing for Wenger who fills in all his criteria of being a young player and someone who will grow better with time.
He can also provide some youth to a defence which has largely older players in the likes of Koscielny and Mertersacker and provide good competition to Calum Chambers as well; moving across the border might be the next thing for the defender.
