There have many rumours recently regarding Cesc Fabregas returning to Arsenal, whether this happens or not I must first make it clear that I like almost all other fans would love Fab to return, but am going to put forward the idea that, provided he is available, we don’t actually need him…but should sign him anyway.
With the current formation that Arsene Wenger employs there are three central midfield positions available, one of those being a central attacking midfield role. Currently I prefer Cazorla in that attacking role as I don’t believe that Rosicky is talented enough and that Wilshere scores enough goals to play there. That would mean that if Fabregas joined then two of Wilshere, Arteta and Ramsey would be on the bench, which would be unfortunate for two of them because at times they can all be
excellent players. It is also unfortunate for them because the centre of midfield is one of the positions where we have the most strength in depth.
However, when an opportunity of this magnitude arises we just have to take it, never does a player of Fabregas’ quality become available for £20-25 million, so we have to make this signing. Furthermore It is not just the first team that dictates a squad’s success over a season but its strength in depth, as United have shown time
and time again.
I would also like to point out that last year Man. United did not need to sign Van Persie, as they already had 4 quality strikers, but they made room for him, because when quality players come along you have to sign them. Ultimately last season Van Persie won them the title over city, and I believe that this signing could propel us to a trophy next season. Not only this but it would show an ambition for Arsenal and be a huge morale booster amongst our team. I genuinely believe that if this signing took place alongside a couple of other moves that Arsenal could be genuine title contenders.
