The FIVE ‘transfer alternatives’ for Arsenal to ponder
It has been coming for a few seasons now. Bacary Sagna’s injuries have finally caught up with him. He has lost that yard of pace and incision which used t0 ensure he was a cut above of all the other full backs in the Premier League.
The right hand side is a flank which is left heavily exposed with Arsenal due to Theo Walcott choosing to wreak most of his havoc down this wing.
Nacho Monreal has been signed on the left hand side to combat the wing threat other teams posses which has been the undoing of the North London club recently but this only half resolves the issue.
Bale and Lennon painfully exposed the inefficiencies down the sides of the Gunners and they will not want to see that slicing apart repeated any time soon.
Wenger’s success used to be built on knowing when it was the right time to move players on and develop the team for the better when it is necessary.
Despite Sagna still being capable enough he is not up to the burden of the upper echelons of the Champions League anymore so drastic action needs to be taken.
Arsenal’s dominant play has always been based around counter attacking starting from the fullbacks so solving their current right back conundrum could reignite them back to the glory trail they so desperately desire.
