Almost everyone agrees that Arsenal need some more backbone at the heart of the midfield. The sale of Alex Song to Barcelona and the recurring injury problems of Abou Diaby means that there is often too much flair and not enough bite in the Gunners central area and it has cost us a few times this season.
Arsenal have been linked with a large number of possible signings since the summer, but there has been no positive action from Wenger as yet. That may be about to change, according to the Independent. Lucas Biglia, the 26-year old Argentinean from Anderlecht, is back at the top of the list, and Arsenal could be about to make an offer for him.
He was linked with Arsenal and Manchester United in the summer, but decided to stay at the Belgian club and try to help them progress in the champions league. The campaign did not go well, but because they finished bottom of their group, he could still play for Arsenal in the next round. He is not the biggest of players, at just 5ft 10in, but he is very highly regarded. Anyway, Roy Keane, Makelele and many other midfield destroyers were not especially big.
Wenger will have had a good look at him, and will probably move this week if he is good enough, because we have a lot of important games coming up. Watch this space.
