Except the on loan transfer deadline signing of Swede Kim Kallstrom, Arsenal’s January transfer window was nothing but an abject failure. The Gunners are genuine title contenders and manager Arsene Wenger should have splashed the cash to strengthen his squad, instead he decided otherwise. Gunners were linked to was Schalke’s young German sensation Julian Draxler, but any sort of a deal failed to materialize. Whether or not Wenger’s boys will end their almost a decade long wait for the Premier League title is for all to see, but we here at Soccersouls decided to go on some pre-summer scouting. Thus we present our readers with three signings Arsenal need for this coming summer and how the London side can fight in the Champions League and domestically with the weapons in their armory.
1. Blaise Matuidi
Even though Mathieu Flamini has done a decent job for Arsenal, still they miss a world class DM who can boss the midfield on his own. This is where PSG’s Blaise Matuidi comes into the picture.
The French International is known for his hard tackles, good work rate and has brilliant vision coupled with dynamism on the ball. He’s worth an enquiry, and given the slightest glimmer of hope, PSG may sell their top midfielder for a right price.
