Arsenal should strengthen their back three by signing this commanding central defender

Arsenal are heading into the 2017/18 campaign with no Champions League football to look forward to, and fans still looking divided on the decision to give manager Arsene Wenger a new deal. 

However, things must go on for the Gunners, and the signing of striker Alexandre Lacazette should prove a shrewd move by Wenger. The French striker is a goal machine, and linking up with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez should give the Gunners a real threat up top.

This season will no doubt see Arsenal opt to play their 3-4-3 formation which they finished last season with, and the Gunners fans here in the Tavern are looking forward to seeing how it pans out following its success last term.

Our landlord though thinks that with three at the back, the Gunners could do with one more centre back in the squad. The player he has in mind? Current Crystal Palace stalwart Scott Dann.

The big defender has become one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League over the last few seasons, and he also holds the handy knack of being able to chip in with vital goals from set pieces too.

Dann deserves his chance to play for a top club. His commanding performances and ability to dominate strikers make him an excellent signing for Arsenal on paper, and he is someone who could really shore up the backline.

Arsenal fans, what do you think? Good signing? Give us your thoughts in the comments!
