A lot of the talk about Arsenal right now is the injury crisis and what Arsene Wenger might to do to boost his squad when the winter transfer window opens in January. One of the priority pieces of transfer business that the Arsenal fans wanted to see done was for the boss to sign a striker but after the French defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin picked up a long term injury last weekend the priority is now clearly to find a replacement for him.
A number of players are being linked with a January move to Arsenal and have been in the past before Coquelin returned from a loan spell and made himself an invaluable part of the first team. So we are seeing names like William Carvalho, Lars Bender, Lucas Biglia, Victor Wanyama and Grzegorz Krychowiak in the football media.
That last name may as well be taken away though, as the Sevilla and Poland international star has controversially ruled out a move to the Premier League and you will not believe the reason. He does not fancy the weather according to a report in The Mirror.
Krychowiak said, “A future in England? It’s too cold there.”
Er, I know that southern Spain is nice and warm but seriously. The 25-year old is from Poland after all and the average temperature there is colder than London. If he is that bothered by the weather then I guess we would not want him anyway. But who should Arsenal sign?
