Arsenal know exactly how they need to improve during the January transfer window, as that has been evident throughout the season so far.
For all their good attacking work, the Gunners have been very poor in defence, which has been the biggest reason why they’re again pushing towards the top four, rather than being in it themselves.
Their back-line has been so worrying at times, that it may even be necessary to sign more than one defender during the January transfer window.
It can’t just be any defender they target either, a top youngster they can build their team around in the future would be a great idea.
The perfect solution, in this case for Arsenal, could be Porto’s Eder Militao.
Militao, who is valued at £18 million on Transfermarkt, is a defender heading to the top of the game, if his form this season is anything to go by.
Big European teams have flocked towards the Brazilian defender, as they watch in amazement at just how talented the 20-year-old is already.
In the 17 appearances, Militao has made this season, he has shown exactly why he is so highly regarded. With a goal and two assists from centre-back, the Porto man has shown skill in not only keeping clean sheets for his side but helping them score as well.
Not only a centre-back, but Eder Militao can also play defensive-midfield and even as a right-back, casting away Arsenal’s problems of having to conjure up a random back-line, like they did against Southampton.
Simply put, Unai Emery has done a terrific job and if he can improve Arsenal defensively, it won’t be long until the Gunners are a permanent fixture back in the top four.
