With the January Transfer window lurking in just a month and a half’s time, Arsenal currently find themselves at the top of the Premiership Table with 25 points after 11 games played. Their fine rune of form was stooped at the hands of ex Gunner Robin Van Persie as the Dutchman rose highest to meet a Wayne Rooney corner to slot home. Arsenal couldn’t find a way back and failed to score for the first time in this League Campaign. With the likes of Wacott, Podolski and Oxdale Old Chamberlain yet to return, Arsene Wenger has plenty of optimism to look forward to, but come the transfer window there are the following players who are sure to bolster the Gunners squad as they enter the second half of this eventful Premier League season.
1. Blaise Matuidi:
Even though free transfer pickup, Frenchman Mathieu Flamini has done a tremendous job for Arsenal, the Gunners lack cover for Mikel Arteta when they are forcing the pace and controlling possession. Any let off will mean the opponents can quickly break in a counter attack and unfortunately, Arteta is the least you want to when it comes to destroy the opposition’s rhythm. This is where PSG’s Blaise Matuidi comes into the picture. The French International is a very fine tackler, surges powerfully ahead and has brilliant vision coupled with dynamism on the ball.
