5 Players Arsenal Need to Acquire This Transfer Window

5 Players Arsenal Need to Nab

Arsenal are an incredibly solid team as is, especially with the injured masses returning. That being said, they still have some key positions to fill. Last year also exposed their lack of depth, and they need to address this concern as well.

5. Fabian Schar

Schar was heavily linked with Arsenal earlier in the year, but he's been unheard of this summer. Mertesacker and Kocielny are obviously embedded as the starters, but they are getting older and at some point a replacement has to come. Schar is that guy.

4. Lars Bender

This one isn't such a big need given Arsenal's stacked midfield, but with injuries a constant concern, a little extra depth never hurt anyone. Plus, he's a physical defensive midfielder which is something Arsenal don't exactly have.

3. Serge Aurier

This one seemed like all but a done deal, but it still hasn't happened. Bacary Sagna is moving on, and unless Arsene Wenger believes Carl Jenkinson can be an everyday player, a replacement has to be found.

2. Antoine Griezmann

Griezmann would add much-needed depth on the wing. Arsenal is in need of someone like him who can rotate into the squad without causing a step back in talent.

Arsenal are in need of another viable striking option to complement Olivier Giroud. Benzema is Giroud's teammate for the French National team, so putting them together would breed some nice chemistry. I'm still not convinced Mario Balotelli is a good idea, but Benzema is.
