Marquee signings like Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Petr Cech in last two seasons has restored the fans faith in Arsene Wenger but everyone is of the opinion that Arsenal need a proper world class defensive midfielder, if they are ever going to challenge for the Premier League title. Here are three defensive midfielders Arsenal should look to sign despite signing Elneny in the January transfer window.
The Polish midfielder has improved leaps and bounce in the last three years winning back to back Europa League trophy. Sevilla bought him at a bargain price of 4.5 million euros but it would take a much higher amount for Arsenal to price him away from Unai Emery. The 25 year old player was even named in the La Liga team of the season and has quickly become one of the best defensive midfielders in the world. Grzegorz Krychowiak’s sizeable 6ft 1in could help to ensure that the north Londoners are not over run or out fought in the centre of the park. He is very strong in the air and wins his fair share of aerial duals. The Pole seems to represent precisely what many believe is needed at the Emirates Stadium.
