Arsenal’s full-back problems might be coming to an end as manager Arsene Wenger has eyed a young full-back who might be a proper addition to the Gunner squad.
Young Swansea full-back Neil Taylor has heard about the rumours and declared himself very excited about the possibility to join such a big club even though he’s happy at Swansea.
“I’m flattered by the interest from Arsenal,” said the 22-year-old in the Daily Star. “I’m enjoying my football at Swansea but it’s a great thing to hear.”
“People are already saying what a big test Arsenal are going to be for us. But the way we look at it, it is also a big test for them coming to the Liberty.
“We want to carry on doing as well as we have been at home and it’s about time we won a game against one of the top teams.
“I don’t see why they can’t be that big scalp. When we played them at the Emirates, we should definitely have got a result. Instead, only a freak goal on the day saw us lose.
“Only Manchester United have beaten us in 10 league games at home and, hopefully, if we can give a good account of ourselves, we can make it a tough day for them.”
Arsenal need to solve the full-back problem as soon as possible as they can’t go on like this for much longer and neither Gibbs or Santos seem ready to come back any time soon.
