The man Arsenal MUST sign this month

Just over a week into the January transfer window and we have seen two Gunners head out on loan but no new arrivals at The Emirates yet.

We have been linked with just about everyone and it seems we are set to strengthen every position in the side if reports are to be believed.

Many of the Arsenal faithful have called on Arsene Wenger to sign a striker, while some believe the back four still needs a little tweaking. Personally, I would just be happy to see a midfield enforcer come in this January. That’s it.

If we can reinforce some other areas of the squad this month then great. However, a dominant, powerful holding midfielder is a MUST, even if it means splashing out. We need someone in the side to press the ball and get stuck in, like Patrick Vieira used to do many years ago.

But who should Arsene Wenger look to bring in who fits the bill you ask? Yann M’Vila.

I know the Rennes midfielder has temperamental issues but he is exactly what the side needs – someone with passion and a bit nuts. Plus, the 22-year-old’s current contract at Rennes expires at the end of the season, meaning we could acquire him for as little as £7 million. A bargain.

The France international would certainly suit Arsenal’s style of play, as he possesses great energy, passing ability and is a powerful figure who could take to the Premier League like a duck to water.

He is still very young and his attitude at present may not be in the right state, but under the potential guidance of Wenger I believe he could become a great player for Arsenal if they were to reignite their interest in him once again.

    Wenger better get the defenders do their job well. Otherwise all the goals will count for nothing. 5 min from victory and the gunners concede a goal for Swansea to draw.t
    This has been happening all the time and will happen again. Wenger is responsible for this. He better get the gunners climb or it will be another season to forget.
    Already the gap with the top teams is widening thanks to his flawed views and there are many.Make it his last seson because the problems are repeated season after season which is totally unacceptable for atop club.As noted at any other team he would have been fired five years ago.

    I think is about time arsenal fans should boycott arsenal matches to show their displeasure to Arsene Wenger as to how arsenal team is gradually sinking,if he does not take care arsena may found it difficult to qualify for europa cup.
