The Gunners left it late at the Emirates stadium to beat a stubborn Cardiff side on new year’s day to reclaim top spot in the Premier League table. Arsene Wenger’s side have a plethora of injury concerns at the current moment and as the campaign withers on, Arsenal’s squad depth will be stretched to the limit. Now with the Transfer Window open, Wenger must splash the cash to increase squad depth and provide defensive cover at the back to fuel their Championship aspirations.

The London side have delivered some sumptuous football in this season and can ill afford to lose pace with the other title contenders in Manchester City and Chelsea. Even though Sagna is playing well, his current backup Carl Jenkinson is very average to be honest. With Sagna’s contract expiring soon, it would be sensible to look for a long-term replacement for the French right-back.  So we here at Soccersouls decided to scout for Mr Wenger himself to give him three options at the right back position.

3. Sebastien Corchia:

The Gunners had been linked with the Sochaux full back for quite some time now and the player himself reiterated the fact that he might leave the French club in the winter transfer window. The 23 year old French International has become an indispensable part of the French club located in the eastern part of the country and has that every bit in him to succeed at the highest level.Corchia is very versatile, which is rare these days, and can play in the left wing too. The former Le Mans fan has terrific vision, composure beyond his years and the eye for the pass by playing out of the back, What more, he is more of the Leighton Baines mould in the either wing who can provide crosses from the wing for the strikers to head home. Sochaux won’t be inclined to sell but a move to one of the Premier League Giants will be hard to resist.
