Possible additions to the squad

The Summer Transfer Window is here, and it is a difficult choice to see who is the right player(s) to join Arsenal FC.

Now, Arsenal surely do not need any young players as we have enough of those and see all the them advance in their way of playing football and professionalism.

If Arsenal were to get someone young, it has to be someone with great potential, someone with almost the same potential as Henry or Anelka had when they joined. It has to be someone with a great future. We do not really need attackers, as Arsenal’s weakness is it’s central defence and defensive midfield. Fabregas is a world class central midfielder but he has an attacking mentality, so we need someone to cover for him. Song has done a wonderful job doing so this season, but we need someone that is stronger and more experienced than him. He will be a great player in two to three years from now for sure, but for now, we need someone who can do the job, until Song is ready to be a starter.

It is safe too say that we have a great attacking force, Arshavin, Robin Van Persie, Adebayor, Walcott, Eduardo, Nasri, Vela, and Bendtner. If i was Wegner I would not worry too much about attacking players. Although, it wouldn’t be a negative for them to join. We have been linked to some players such as, Yaya Toure (he’s always linked with us), Lorik Cana, Xabi Alonso, Thomas Vermaelen, Blaise Matuidi, and Edin Dzeko. For Xabi Alonso, it looks like it will not happen. Garreth Barry already went to Manchester City, were he is getting paid 100k a week. The people who will be a plus for Arsenal are, Lorik Cana, because he is a strong, big holding midfielder and is not scared to tackle; Blaise Matuidi because he looks like a younger version of Michael Essien, Yaya Toure because he can play almost any defensive role you give him, Thoman Vermaelen, although he is still a raw talent, he can grow into a great center back and Edin Dzeko because he can net many goals and can be a great replacement for Adebayor, who seems quite likely to depart this summer.

Now I have given my opinion, Lets hear yours!
