Two Players That Arsenal Must Sign

I am sick and tired of hearing that Lukasz Fabianski is the best goalkeeper in training. Well, when I wank I’m the best lover in the world.

Fabianski is not strong enough mentally to play at a big club. Things may work out for him elsewhere, but it’s not happening for him at Arsenal.

Sell him.

Arsenal need a new goalkeeper. Jens Lehmann says we should sign Manuel Neuer from Schalke. Jens says he will be Germany’s Number one very soon. Lehmann is Neuer’s hero. He is 6 feet 4, has two caps for Germany and is only 24 years old. Arsenal, however, are not the only top club looking for a keeper. So are Manchester United who know that Edwin van der Saar can only last one more season.

Currently, Arsenal have Vermaelen, Song, Djourou and Gallas injured. They only have 35 year old Sol Campbell and 32 year old Mikael Silvestre left. Rookie Kyle Bartley is on loan at Sheffield United but is unable to break into their first team. At the end of the season, Gallas, Campbell, and Silvestre will be out of contract. I expect only one of them to be around next season. That leaves Arsenal with three centre-backs – not including Song – and that’s not enough judging by the amount of injuries that they suffer each season.

Aged 22 and 6 feet 2 inches tall is Jan Vertonghen who plays for Ajax. This Belgian international is a left-sided centre-back – like Vermaelen – who can also play as a defensive midfielder and loves to join attacks from the back. He can play anywhere on the left side and is good in the air. Wenger may decide that he doesn’t need another left sided centre-back because he already has Vermaelen. However, with Silvestre the only left footed back-up likely to leave and with Arsenal’s injury record, signing Vertonghen is a must. He has played with Vermaelen 21 times for Belgium proving that the two left footers can play alongside one another.

Vertonghen is available for 8 million pounds. Neuer is available for 12 million.

Arsenal need to act fast.

Keep It Arsenal
