It is being reported that Arsenal are planning to surprise us all and actually sign an outfield player this season. After being the only club from the top division of the five best leagues in Europe, perhaps Arsene Wenger has realised that his belief in the current Gunners squad may have been just a little too strong.
And with Arsenal having let in five goals in our last three games, it is hardly surprising to see The Independent reporting that the manager is looking to sign a defender in the January transfer window.
The player in question is Daniele Rugani, a 21-year old centre back for Juventus and the Italy under 21 international side. He has not played for the Serie A champions yet this season after spending two very impressive seasons on loan at Empoli and so the Gunners are hoping that a transfer bid of around £13 million should be able to get him to north London.
So is this transfer rumour a reason for the current Arsenal centre backs to worry about their places in the team?
