Three positions Arsenal need to strengthen this January
The centre-half pairing of Shkodran Mustafi and Lauren Koscielny are beginning to form a formidable partnership at the back, something the Gunners have lacked for a number of years. However, it is called a back FOUR for a reason, and if you look either side of the ever-improving duo, you can easily identify a weakness in the Gunners’ arsenal.
Hector Bellerin looks half the player he did last season, while Nacho Monreal, although consistent, fails to offer much in the attacking sense down the left. It’s an attribute of almost all modern full-backs yet one the Spaniard clearly lacks.
