Arsenal lost out once more today as they were swept aside by Newcastle United at St James’ Park to ensure they remain without a point away from home in 2018, losing five in a row for the first time in the club’s history away from home.
The Gunners are in serious need of an overhaul in terms of some of their squad, and our landlord here in the Tavern is still amazed at some of the poor quality he has seen manager Arsene Wenger bring in over the years.
One such player who we here think could be an excellent signing is West Brom defeder Ahmed Hegazi, who has taken to the Premier League like a duck to water and looks an assured presence in the Baggies back four.
With Albion looking set for relegation back to the Championship, you would assume they need to clear the decks somewhat, and Hegazi is certainly a saleable asset given his form and how well he has adapted to life in the top flight in England.
Strong, not the slowest for his size, and simply an out and out defender, Hegazi could well be the perfect sort of signing for Arsenal, who need to add some presence and personality to a squad which appears to be desperately lacking in any sort of fight.
Gunners fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
