Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has admitted the fact that reinforcements will still be brought in at Arsenal now that Alex Song has chosen to leave the club for Barcelona. The Frenchman seems to be interested in adding a couple new players to the squad at least, and it seems that a midfielder and a defender are his biggest worries.
According to the Frenchman, the squad is still fragile in the defense and he is looking to add another defender to the team before too late. With Song now away, Wenger has to find a top defensive midfielder who can replace the Cameroon international as soon as possible.
“We are looking to bring one more midfielder in of course, and maybe one defender as well because we still feel we are short in some positions,” he told Arsenal’s official website.
“We didn’t lose, but it is frustrating when you are home with everyone here and you do not create more chances than we did,” he added. “It is very difficult to understand.”
It seems like Wenger’s options for the defensive midfield role are now either Real Madrid’s Nuri Sahin or Rennes’ Yann M’Vila. Who do you think would be better?
