Arsenal boss Unai Emery is currently facing a mild defence crisis at the moment.
Truth be told, since the start of the season, Emery has not had the luxury of options to pick his best defence lineup in all competitions, especially at left-back, with series of injuries hampering his available options.
This has seen the Gunners linked with numerous options ahead of the January transfer window.
Here we take a look at some of the targets that have been reported and have probably made it into Emery and Sven Mislintat’s transfer shopping list.
- Ben Chilwell
- Age: 21
- Current club: Leicester City
- Contract until: 2024
- Market value: £13.5m
Chilwell has been linked with Arsenal a lot in previous years, and those links have started to resurface this season despite the full-back’s new deal to stay in Leicester.
That’s as a result of the youngster’s impressive Premier League performances, including one against the Gunners, where he forced the opening goal in off Hector Bellerin.
Chilwell is strong in the air, a competent dribbler and a good chance creator, which are important attributes if you’re going to play in an Arsenal team. When the team’s full-backs aren’t making chances, the whole team suffers, as we’ve seen on a few occasions already this season.
If Chilwell is interested in making a step up and Arsenal are willing to pay a premium to buy him out of his contract, he could be worth the investment.
