Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Our win over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium now see us back fourth position. We find ourselves 8 points behind the league leader Chelsea.
Arsenal need to step up big time to win the title this season and must reinforce their squad this month.
Recently, we covered a report (via Le10Sport) claiming that the Gunners have moved in and contacted Ligue 1 side Monaco to hire the services of Tiemoue Bakayoko who is rated around €45million (The Times).
The French international is a top quality defensive midfielder who has been in brilliant form for Monaco. Arsene Wenger badly needs a specialist holding midfield star who can provide a solid cover in front of the back four and Bakayoko completely fits the bill.
Therefore, the French manager must spend and sign the 22-year-old star this month to utilize him in the defensive midfield position in place of injured Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin.
