It is no secret that Arsenal needs a massive rebuild and has to do it on a limited budget, so some creative thinking is required and one place we could look at is the free transfer market.
The Daily Mirror ran a piece today that listed 11 players that can be signed on a free transfer, two of those players are our very own Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck, so that leaves nine that we could have a look at.
Goalkeeper: Heurelho Gomes
38 years old, seriously? Does this one even need explaining why we would not touch him with a barge pole?
Defender: Gary Cahill
He is Chelsea and 33 but I must admit, we could do worse.
Defender: Diego Godin
Now we are talking, yes, he is 33 but he would bring immense experience and leadership to the back four but I would be worried about him handling the pace of the Premier League.
Defender: Filipe Luis
Another sold defender and like Godin, he is 33 and I would have the same worries but then again, the same positives.
Midfielder: Adrien Rabiot
Top quality player and he is just 24, the only concern for me would be his attitude but he is one free transfer I beleive we should try and get.
Midfielder: Juan Mata
Nope, too slow and if there is one thing we do not need is a slow winger.
Midfielder: Alan Dzagoev
Just 28 and he did finish joint top scorer in Euro 2012, he would not command a huge wage and definietly one to consider.
Midfielder: Arjen Robben
Too old now at 35 and his pace has gone a bit plus he has an attitude that would not suit us.
Forward: Daniel Sturridge
On his day can be great, he is just 29 but he is far too injury prone and if we were going to sign a player like him it would beg the question why not keep Danny Welbeck.
So in conclusion, of the nine players I would consider five of them, Cahill, Godin, Luis, Dzagoev and Rabiot but they all come with a big risk but even so, when you consider our measly transfer budget it may pay to take on a couple of them and in Rabiot and Dzagoev we could get two high-quality players that could do a fantastic job for us.
