Arsenal have the perfect opportunity to climb into the top four tomorrow but they won’t find it easy to secure all three points at Vicarage Road as Watford have been impressive at home this season.
The Gunners already have to worry about finding a replacement for Aaron Ramsey in the summer but that won’t be the main focus for the North London club as they’re in desperate need of defensive reinforcements.
What’s the News?
Interestingly, it appears as if Unai Emery is looking to launch a surprise raid on a rival player, as according to The Sun, Arsenal are considering a move for Spurs’ Toby Alderweireld.
The Belgian could leave for just £25 million in the summer due to a clause in his contract extension, so the Gunners could bag themselves a bargain.
It’s safe to say that Arsenal’s biggest problem this season has been at the heart of the defence as Shkodran Mustafi has been absolutely useless, so Alderweireld would be a great purchase.
Toby Alderweireld, who is valued at £36 million (by Transfermarkt), has established himself as one of the best defenders in world football over the past few seasons.
Of course, securing the Belgian would be massive for the Gunners in the summer as he’s the type of player who could take Arsenal’s defence to the next level. But, it remains to be seen as to whether the defender would want to move to the Emirates as they’re in a worse position than Spurs at this moment in time, and the rivalry could play a part.
Arsenal fans, surely it would be massive if you can somehow lure Alderweireld to the Emirates? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.
