Arsenal simply have to make signing Koulibaly their main priority

Arsenal would like to think that their excellent unbeaten run will go towards propelling them back into the top four by the end of the season.

Having come so far in a short space of time, it would be testament to the quality Unai Emery has had as manager, seeing as Arsenal were a club slowly regressing under Arsene Wenger.

As good a start as they have endured, it will all count for nothing if they don’t finish the season well, hence the need for some big signings in January so Arsenal can be sure of pushing their rivals for a top-four finish.

A centre-back should be a priority with Rob Holding recently suffering a season-ending injury but Arsenal shouldn’t just look to replace him but bring in an amazing defender like Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

Koulibaly, who is valued at £54 million on Transfermarkt, has shown what a brilliant defender he is yet again this season for Napoli.

For the duration of the two games in which Napoli played Liverpool, Koulibaly kept their forwards quiet and even if players do get around him, he more often than not has the pace to recover.

Arsenal’s defence is in desperate need of a talent like Kalidou Koulibaly, who would alone completely reform their back-line and make it a lot tougher to score against.

It’s no coincidence that Napoli have kept eight clean-sheets when Koulibaly has been at the heart of their defence, the big 27-year-old is an imposing player that attackers struggle to get past.

This signing alone for Arsenal could see the Gunners make the top four in the Premier League with ease – Do you agree?
