Even though Arsenal have just recently signed the young English defender Cohen Bramall and the manager already has two very good first team options, the position of left back is one of the ones that comes up more than most in the various Arsenal transfer rumours rolling around the football media.
So reading between the lines it appears to me that Arsene Wenger may well be preparing to lose either Nacho Monreal, who has been often linked with a return to Spain and La Liga, or Kieran Gibbs who is thought to be keen to play a lot more regular football and may be ready to move if it does not come with the Gunners.
If this is so then the boss should be very interested in the latest Man United transfer runours, with The Independent reporting that Jose Mourinho has given up on the England international and is ready to sell the former Southampton left back.
Apparently he has lost patience with Shaw’s lack of progress but I think Wenger could be the man to help the talented defender realise his full potential. After all his record with young left backs is second to none, having brought on both Ashley Cole and Gael Clichy as well as Gibbs.
What do you think Gooners? Should Arsenal offer this Man United outcast a transfer lifeline as we did with Danny Welbeck?
