3 positions Arsenal MUST strengthen in January

Central Midfield

Another position we desperately need to strengthen is in the middle of the park. Rumours continue to fly around that Arteta, Flamini, and Rosicky will be departing in the summer and all three are arguably no longer the quality we need as backup in the centre of the pitch.

The Cazorla/Coquelin partnership has gone beyond all expectations in the Premier League this season, but a powerful and dominating midfielder in the mould of Grzegorz Krychowiak would be a perfect addition to add a new dimension to our squad and provide competition. It’s a long season, and we need backup in the area, particularly if injuries or fatigue hits. Krychowiak wont be available until the summer, but there are plenty of other options for us to explore and Arsene has to act on this one, or risk burning out our first choice central midfielders. Some healthy competition would also keep Coquelin and Cazorla on their toes.
