Arsenal will be glad to have got their first points under Unai Emery as they hope to make improvements under the former PSG boss during the course of the season.
After Emery spent a decent amount on new talent for his Arsenal team, it’s safe to say that in attack the Gunners look a threat for any team but defensively they continue to look vulnerable, something that was apparent also with Arsene Wenger and consequently it must be looked at in detail during the January transfer window.
Typically, business is a lot harder in January but Arsenal have to use that month to strengthen defensively, possibly with the massive addition of Jonathan Tah.
The German international is currently with Bayer Leverkusen, a club that Arsenal have already done business with in the recent months, persuading goalkeeper Bernd Leno to the Emirates.
With that in mind, the two clubs should be able to conduct business again, this time in regards to Jonathan Tah.
The 22-year-old, (who is valued at £36 million on Transfermarkt) is a regular for the German club but with the right money offered, Arsenal could bag themselves a top centre-back and the answer to their recent woes. Tah played his part in 33 games for Leverkusen last season and would be a tremendous addition at the back for Arsenal.
Jonathan Tah is a big, physical centre-back that has shown in his fast rise to the top of German football that he will soon become a top, top defender, something Arsenal would be lucky to have.
His dominance in the air and quick turn of pace means any mistakes can be rectified and pace is something Arsenal’s centre-backs massively lack.
Sokratis and Mustafi are generally a solid pairing but if attackers get in behind, there is no chance of recovery from either of them, that’s where Tah comes in yet again.
Pace is key in the modern game and with that attribute in abundance, Jonathan Tah simply has to be a centre-back Arsenal consider in January.
