Despite the fact that Arsenal weren’t able to transfer any full-backs in the January transfer window before it closed, the papers are still writing about the possibility of Arsenal going for all sorts of left-backs or right-backs.
Lyon’s Aly Cissokho, City’s Wayne Bridge or Saad Al-Mukhaini have all been linked with possible moves to the Emirates Stadium, but why?
Arsenal’s Sagna is back in full swing thankfully, Gibbs is about ready to get on the pitch allowing Vermaelen to claim back his spot in the center of the defence, and Santos and Jenkinson are to follow up, still having a bit of sideline time to spend though.
All in all Arsenal will have all of its 4 defenders by summer time, so why are the newspapers keeping that up? They’re even linking the Gunners to Vertonghen who would be an impressive addition, saying that he’ll be able to help the Gunners on the left side…and he’s not even a full-back!!
Santos and Gibbs are both top quality players who don’t need changing, and the same goes for Sagna. Let’s just hope that they’ll be injury free. What about Jenkinson? Is he good enough for Arsenal or should the manager think about finding a better replacement for Sagna, one who could actually create competition?
