86 Days Till The Winter Transfer Window. 3 Stars Arsenal MUST Sign!

3 STARS ARSENAL MUST SIGN IN JANUARY

  1. A DEFENDER

It would count for nothing if we signed Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in January if we don’t bring a defender in before that window shuts. It’s absolutely pointless. You can have a player in your team win all the personal awards for scoring the most goals in a season but to what benefit is that to the team?

The Attributes: Say we are still in the Champions League, we’d probably need someone who’s currently not in that competition so as to help out Koscielny and Mertesacker with the fixtures which come thick and fast within that period, with defence of our FA Cup also to kick in. Given that Per and Kos are both nearing their thirties, a player within the age range of 24 and 27 would be ideal, basically one who would possess sufficient experience in the game but with still more years to give for the future.

The Contenders:  Mats Hummels * Ron Vlaar * Neven Subotic * Matija Nastasic

All four have been mentioned as Arsenal targets over the summer, with varying degrees of possibility about any transfer. Two of the four are captains at their clubs, creating a doubt over the likelihood of their clubs to release them.  Nastasic has not hit the heights expected of him at the Etihad and with the arrival of Eliaquim Mangala, the Serb has now been relegated to be the emergency tag-team with Martin Demichelis. While that Serb is still below the age limit specified above, the other Serb on this list is just about the right blend of age, ability and experience to make him the choice from this lot.

The One: Would choose Hummels over anyone everyday of the week, but let’s face it, it won’t happen, definitely not this window, so I go for his partner, Subotic.

 

  1. A DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER

The rumours have mostly revolved a certain German, but does he really have all it takes?

The Attributes: Ball winner, with the ability to make key interceptions and one who can be relied on to distribute the ball with the personified coolness of an Eskimo.

The Contenders:  Sami Khedira * Adrien Rabiot * William Carvalho * Lassana Diarra

Diarra is free and available at the moment. He’d readily jump at the opportunity to restart his career as he has an eye on the Euros to be hosted in his home country. Carvalho could still be convinced into not signing that new Sporting contract, but is there not a man somewhere who isn’t ready to discuss any new contracts with his club?

The One: Of course there is, Sami Khedira.

 

  1. A FORWARD

Not necessarily a center forward but a real wide man who can give our midfield creators more options to make good use of their inventions. Could step into the center forward role in the future though

The Attributes:    Athletic, with a good understanding of a pass and can make a nuisance of himself in and around the box.

The Contenders:  Alexandre Lacazette * Julian Draxler * Pedro Rodriguez * Xherdan Shaquiri

The One: Draxler is very tempting and would become one of the brightest stars of his generation, but for sheer experience (and he’s faster too), Pedro Rodriguez is going to be a good Gunner. He’s not even wanted at Barca anymore.

    I’d go Nastasic, Schniderlin and Draxler.
    Sell Podolski, Campbell and possibly Ozil if anyone will take him.

    Draxler is far better suited to a central position. As proven with Schalke, he is far less influence when pushed out wide. I’d take Lacazette everytime, young, silly quick and only going to increase in value.

    i want Marco Reus, Nastasic, Draxler, Khedira thats my january signing for arsenal, and reasons why
    Marco Reus plays at left wing where arsenaal have most lacking position with no professional in that position Reus can play left wing / rw and a As centre forward or attacking midfielder take this guy he brings u pace , vast vision and Assist and long range shots, Nastasic we lack defenders mainly at Debuchy replace r concern and ant CB too so this can take CB position and chambers coming good all time so Nastasic both merge together well , Draxler- the main one he brakes the opponents midfield with pace and fury runs and tackles and he has some gas to burn he is a good player if u want me choose btw reus and Draxler i will go for Reus dam sure but i cant ignore draxler i will take both in, with carolz coming up with age and not putting great deal ,it adds depth the One and Main man Khedira
    immagine Khedira and Rambo together
    Wenger had just has to say both this players that Rambo and khedira if one of u choose
    to go front the other had to be held back a bit and brake opponents counter , and merge with back 4 , these 2 players r tackling sounded and khedira mainly works hard a lot like rambo but difference in them Rambo bit attacking out set than Khedira he want to def and come up front so with them one coming forward and other waiting is good balance in attack and defence , Khedira is known for box to box midfielder like rambo but he has bit more work rate in tackling and defence and winning ball abkc like Sanchez, Image Arsenal XI with
    Szczesny ———————— Sub ospina
    – Cambers- BFG- Kos-Gibbs ——————-sub Nastasic /hector bellerin
    Ramsey-Khedira——————————-sub Flamini/Diaby
    Alexis Sanchez- Mesut Özil – Draxler/Reus——- sub wilshere/walcott/chamberlin/carzoladraxler / reus
    Welbeck
    selling player campbell , Arteta and if possible carozla, but keep podolski u need a person like in team and out to cheer buds along and have funa nd relax and get focused for another battle

    i know arsene wenger will hardly bring in a player in january thts why i dnt have mch to say.. *maybe bringing in sme1 on a six month loan remember last season!* bt me as a fun wud love to see the likes of
    Nastasic-he can allow to be benched yet promising
    Las Bender- u jst cnt dought his abilities yet he still has shinning years ahead of him though hijacking kedira deal wud be wow since th God’s team is desperate to sell.
    Lastly, Marcos, I Dnt Mean Rojo Bt Reus- He Is A Midfield Dynamo I Mean Quick,key passes,versatility,scoring,experience OMG wat else shud i say!!!
    But sincerely speeking,in january tranfer u dont expect much to happen coz all teams look to keep there squads untoughed in hope for silverwares and remember arsene doesn’t give it mch atention thts why i say, the biggest thing he will do is letting podolski nd campbel go then bring in atleast one aged defender or d.midi on 6mnth loan,thts all.
