Arsenal’s defenders deserve recognition as well as the strikers

In today’s football transfer market, there are so many valuable players that are indispensable to their current clubs.

Forwards are the most expensive players, but with defenders becoming more tactical in their game, they have begun commanding huge sums in the transfer market. Arsenal has formed one of the best defensive units under Arteta. Only Newcastle have conceded fewer goals in the Premier League this season (11), while Arsenal have conceded 16.

Arsenal’s defenders’ performances have not gone unnoticed, with William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes recently receiving praise.According to the Football Observatory, Gabriel and Saliba appear to have increased their transfer market value.

In the transfer market, Saliba, who was signed for around €30 million, commands a €80 million fee. Gabriel, who was acquired for at least €26 million, now commands a fee of €62 million.

Josko Gvardiol, Ruben Dias, and Eder Militao are the top three in the standings, having all earned more than €100 million in valuation.

William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes of Arsenal are ranked fourth and fifteenth, respectively.

Arsenal is establishing itself as a European powerhouse, with Saka and Martinelli already establishing themselves as some of the best (and most valuable) attackers, and Saliba and Gabriel establishing themselves as some of the best centre backs.

  1. We are more calm at the back this season and make less mistakes (except for a few so far). Gabriel has really matured and having Partey in front of them gives a good balance. Overall our midfielders are putting in a shift too starting from our captain.

    If God forbid Xhaka or Partey are out can we expect the same from Jorginho should he come in, I highly doubt it!

  2. So no news on JA that we given up on caicedo and nowwww going after another chelsea leftover ,not to mention we left it again for an 11hour deal tussle like last january when we then missed on top 4 becuase partey injuried and didnt get a back up,and like last summer trying for douglas luiz on last half hour of the window ,its going to come back and bite us just wait and see,

  3. Love the “European powerhouse” quote!!!
    Going to be a nervous last few hours, but MA has now got a brilliant set of defenders, including back up players.
    My only concern is reading about Tierney moving abroad and I hope that doesn’t happen.

    1. I agree wholeheartedly Ken.At the beginning of the season I had doubts concerning Gabriel, but during the past 6 weeks,he has been immense in every match and has become a real leader at the back.Certainly this is the strongest set of defenders we have had for some time.As to KT ,I believe he is a target for Newcastle next season.A friend’s Son is a season ticket holder at Newcastle and apparently Howe is a big admirer of the Scot who would be a big upgrade on Dan Burn, who is of course really a centre back.

  4. MA ought to have gone for a better midfielder who is still energetic and wants to build his CV not a person who has no pressure of anything. How I wish this could be done by tonight .For sure we really need Thomas Partey’s back up.A player who is very strong and aggressive as well in the midfield.

  5. Ojay, your final sentence is a description of Declan Rice who ,unfortunately, is not available this season, but will be next.Time for fans to exercise patience.Arteta knows what he is doing.
