It’s crystal clear to see from the Arsenal fans perspective that they desperately need team improvements this summer and they simply have to address the inadequate defensive issues that keep reoccurring.
Following another disappointing away defeat in the Premier League, the blame was firmly on the defence after another poor display from certain individuals. Steve Bould, who sits on the side with Arsene Wenger, surely must squirm in his seat given how successful the defence he was a part of was.
It’s obvious that with Arsenal missing out on the top four again this season, something must change. Whether the Gunners will finally be bold enough to make a managerial change is still unlikely, so the Arsenal faithful will again have to be hopeful of players arriving.
One player our punters believe would single-handily help Arsenal’s defence massively is Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane, who is valued at £54.00 million on Transfermarkt. After 37 appearances so far this summer, Varane has again been a solid performer for Los Blancos alongside Sergio Ramos.
It seems that top English clubs have been rumoured with Raphael Varane for years but given that the Frenchman is still only 24-years-old, it would prove to be a massive coup and a real signal of intent from Arsenal in order to get back into the top four at least.
Arsenal have increased their team with a number of big signings recently, bringing in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette but now the Gunners must look to improve their vulnerable defence. For too long this has gone un-noticed and with it becoming more and more obvious their defence isn’t good enough, Raphael Varane would be an unbelievable coup if Arsenal were audacious enough to pull it off.
