Looking at the options available to Arsene Wenger right now in the Arsenal squad, you could say that we have a decent amount of cover all through the defence, especially after our World Cup winner Per Mertesacker rolled back the years and made a lot of doubters eat their words with his almost perfect FA cup final performance.
However you want the Gunners to line up, though, I think that most of us would have Laurent Koscielny as the first name in that back line. The boss seems to feel the same way, unsurprisingly, so when he plays a back three formation it is the France international in the centre, or it is when he is fit and the problem for Wenger is that the fitness of his fellow countryman cannot be relied upon.
As reported by the Evening Standard, Koscielny’s has admitted to needing daily treatment for an ongoing Achilles problem first picked up three years ago, so where does that leave Arsenal? Potentially in trouble, which is why I think we need to make one of this summer’s transfer priorities a top class defender in case Kos the boss is unavailable.
Do you guys agree and if so, who should we sign?
