Our defensive frailty was made bare in the game against Liverpool, where we cheaply conceded four goals at the Emirates.
The result of the lose is that Wenger is now compelled to complete deals for his defensive targets before the close of this week.
Nonetheless, recent report claims Arsenal have been handed a massive boost in their pursuit of Manchester City defender Jason Denayer, after the player reportedly missed training with club.
Arsenal are locked in a race with Galatasaray to secure the signature of Denayer according to The Sun.
Arsenal are currently facing a defensive crisis following injuries to Per Mertesacker and Gabriel. The Gunners have been forced to field the young defender Rob Holding in their opening two games of the Premier league.
Despite joining Manchester City in 2013 from JMG Lie, the Belgium international is yet to make a Premier League appearances for the Citizens.
The Sporting director of Galatasaray Levent Nazifoglu reveals that talks are ongoing for a deal but not yet concluded.
“Nothing has been finalised yet but talks have been promising,” Nazifoglu was quoted as saying by Turkish-football.com
Denayer has been reduced to a fringe at the Etihad, failing to feature even on the bench last Saturday in Manchester City’s win over Sunderland.
The report claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has his eye on Denayer as a solution for his defensive crisis – Mertesacker, Gabriel and Koscielny are all currently out.
He is valued at £12 million.
