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.
Arsenal have had a disastrous start to their Premier League campaign this season, with manager Arsene Wenger already facing calls from some fans to resign once again.
The experienced French manager will be glad with the international break over the coming weeks as it will give him time to re-strategize, and he will be hoping he can bring in more players before the transfer window slams shuts this Thursday.
The Gunners’ defense needs some serious reinforcements. Their humiliating experience at Anfield over the weekend made their frailties in that department glaring for all to see and there is a man available in the market that would be the perfect man to revive Arsenal’s defense – Javier Mascherano.
The experienced Argentinian has fallen down the pecking order at Barcelona, but he still has plenty to offer. His spells previously in England with both West Ham and Liverpool yielded success, and he is exactly the sort of player and character the Gunners could do with.
His destructive style of play and determination to win the ball and put his foot in where it matters make him an excellent choice in any line-up, not least for a club like Arsenal who are desperately in a need of a player with his skills.
He would be available cheap in today’s market, and would certainly be an excellent signing by Arsene Wenger.
