Arsenal may be able to get their long term target once the January transfer window opens. If you believe reports from Spain this morning, Victor Ruiz who has been a long term target for Arsenal has finally decided to leave Valencia as he has finally come to terms with the fact that it will be difficult to oust current first central defence pair Adil Rami or Ricardo Costa.
Fichajes.net are reporting that Ruiz has told the club he will seek to leave once the January window opens as he seeks regular first team football which Valencia can not guarantee. Victor Ruiz has been constantly linked with a move to Arsenal in the last couple of windows but with the players constantly refusing to move.
With Arsenal still lacking in the defense in terms of numbers, it will not be a surprise if Arsenal finally lands their man once the January transfer window opens. Victor Ruiz will offer competition to current defensive pair Per Mertesacker and Koscielny and his versatility means he can cover up at both left back and right back as well.
