Arsene Weneger made it clear that he does not think Arsenal need to sign a new left-back this summer following Gael Clichy moving to Manchester City. “We have Kieran Gibbs, Armand Traore and Thomas Vermaelen who can play at left back so we have what we need,” Wenger said during a press conference on the Far East tour.

This stance taken by Wenger has not gone down well with many fans as the belief is that we can not reply on Kieran Gibbs to be our first choice left-back. He is still very young and has a lot to learn. We need an experienced head in our defence so we can stop shipping in goals. Gibbs will be a great player in two or three season time but we need to groom him nicely alongside an experienced player.

Newcastle’s Spanish left-back Jose Enrique is set to leave the club this summer as he seeks Champions League football. Liverpool are also interested in him but if Arsenal do decide to buy Enrique, which I believe they should, then Enrique would pick Arsenal over Liverpool.

The Newcastle manager, Alan Pardew has said, “The noises coming out of Jose’s camp are that he wants to get a new club [that is] playing Champions League football.

“We cannot offer him that at the moment, so that seems to be his focus. Hopefully that will change.”

Arsenal have to capitalise on this and make a move for Enrique.

    My opinion is’AW should sign an exprienced leftback ad if possible go for Mata in the middle ad release uncomfortable cesc.

    Arsenal must try to buy not only enrigue but also gary cahill,benzema,mata. Arsenal must try by all means to buy them. Let’s win us some trophies this season and put this shame behind us. Thanks

    We need a centre back ,left back and cdm .otherwise we will have big problem especially in the last months of the season thats similar to the last season.If we perform well this season we will also close to the title but dont have to touch it. Because of the injury problems and inadequate strength and experience in the bench. We hope arsene will strengthen the squad and no more long term injuries .goodluck arsenal.

  10. mas says:

    Wenger plz sign experienced players jst 4 the sake of fans.

    let me ask, is this gibbs better than glitch, if no, while sellin clitchy for gibbs, since he wants to win somthin this season, wenger is wasting his time, economicing money that does not belongs to him and killin the club jst to make profit without trophy.he shud buy a left back otherwise they will take advantage of that boy, or let him buy two centre half and play varmenem there

  12. Njen says:

    Bliv me. Wenger is not going to buy another player. He said that ‘we are not that bad defensively. We conceded less from open play, we need to defend from set-pieces…blah blah blah’ and that we have T.V. back so will get better. Just like he has said last season, the season b4, and the other season.
    We don’t need other offenssive player like he just signed- we had the best midfield and 2nd best goals without Cesc and Rvp, our best players for half the season.
    Cahill is a no no. Samba would be better. But like I said, summer spending is over. Maybe we should lower our hopes of a trophy and pray to be in top 4 next season.

  13. chukwu gerald says:

    if the fans dose not take alms against that club, nothin is goin to happen, because the board are happy, he is enriching them, so there is no how they will sack him

  17. olat says:

    Wonder the kind of person the la’prof is,biliv we fortify our defence now talking about anoda.Let wait and see what are his plans this season.

  18. arsenal should by Jose or Baines,I dnt see Gibbs or Traore filling the gap left by Clichy

  19. Emmanuel says:

    Wenger understand the club’s(arsenal) problems very well better than anyone. But his selfishness come first in his mind. I wonder why he “arsene wenger” wants to put horse on cat. We need strong and well experience center back that can stop people like Rooney, Messi, Tez and others.

  20. Martin says:

    are you actually listening to yourselves? Is it not like this every year? linked to this player and that and so on…and missing out on them because Wenger is a stubborn arse who is dillusional and needs to f off..HATE WENGER LOVE ARSENAL

  21. TrueWisdom says:

    I have faith in Gibbs. We just need to sign Mata, Benzema/Aguero and Stekelenberg

  22. adewale ogunbodun says:

    its high time arsenal board and mgt take a cusory look at arsene wenger untimely decision, fortify team so as to win trophy in the season to come.the coach is singing another tune if the man is tired or loosed focus let him just throw in the towel,because he is leading us to another trophyless season.when other team are busy in the transfer market,buying quality player heis looking for the reminant to buy.the fans will surely call for his resignation.enough is enough wenger had taken the arsenal fans for a ride.where is stan kroenke or ivan gazidis this is not what they promise the fans or are they expecting empty seat at the emirate stadium.tell kroenke to wake up frm sleep his hard earn money is at staked.

  23. if arsenal fc shuld fail to deliver again this season heavy curse shall be placed on the stingy useless coach.smaller team in epl are busy trying there luck on players signing,yu messing up ,i just dont know this coach prob when its comes to money issue.he should just thank his star the russia mogul did not make higher bids ,he will be in the labour market by now.
    sign players for us or get yur buttocks get fucked off. from the groove.

    Arsene my mentor. Do what you can do and 4get the critics. But mind you,if you don’t sign cahill,mata,enrique,benzema and aguero as said,arsenal may go on another trophyless year. And trust me,you won’t like the fans reaction even if it means sending a letter bomb to you and your family. So what do you say we win us some trophies. Experience is the key to a successful team. Thanks with love.
