You would have to say that is the defensive areas of the Arsenal squad that are most in need of a boost at the moment, with the Gunners leaking goals on a regular basis and having to play inexperienced young players like Hector Bellerin and use others out of position.
But Arsene Wenger is always looking for any good players coming on to the transfer market and was apparently hoping to make a swoop for the highly rated Barcelona and Spain international striker Munir El Haddadi in the near future. With Barca about to add the Uruguayan bitey man Luis Suarez to the attacking talents of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Pedro, the Arsenal boss thought he would be able to tempt the youngster to come to the English Premier League to further his career, according to a Daily Express report, as the young foward is thought to have a release clause of less than £10 million in his contract.
But the paper claims that new reports from Spain have dashed Wenger’s transfer plans, because Munir has been convinced by the new Barcelona boss Luis Enrique that he will be given plenty of chances, which he backed up again last night by bringing him on against Ajax in the Champions League. So the player is happy to stay in La Liga, for now at least. Back to the drawing board then Arsene.
