In the midfield position, a defensive midfielder is what the manager is looking for as a replacement for Alex Song.He also admitted we still needed to add some quality to the defence at full back.Sagna is still struggling to gain fitness and Gibbs and Jenkinson are still short of some needed skills.
With the Sahin deal almost done, Yann M'Villa is an option to fill Song's position but there might be a bit of competition as Tottenham are also in pursuit of the Frenchman.
Arsenal were close to sealing a deal for the midfielder after the EURO but later pulled out after reports of misconduct and have now reconsidered bringing him to the Emirates.
After the Sunderland draw, Arsene said,
”We are looking to bring one more midfielder in of course, and maybe one defender as well because we still feel we are short in some positions.”
On the other hand, Cheik M'Bengue had revealed Arsenal wants him and the Toulouse left back is keen on a move.Many might just wonder why we need another left back after Gibbs and Santos but according to findings, our manager doesn't take Santos to be a defender as he is more of a left winger.You should know what I mean if you had ever watched him play.He is so attack minded and I see Wenger converting him in the near future.
