Arsenal are in fourth place, nine points behind league leaders Chelsea and today they have the chance to move above Man City who lost against Liverpool yesterday.
The Gunners are in shaky form at the moment and it will be a massive shock if they can somehow catch the Blues this season.
As far as the transfers are concerned, the North Londoners are linked with yet another defensive midfielder in the form of Sevilla star Steven N’Zonzi.
According to Daily Express, Wenger has moved in an made inquiries to sign the 28-year-old French international who is rated around 25 million pounds ($31million)
Arsenal already have more than a few players who can play in the holding midfield position.
Francis Coquelin has been impressive and not to forget, the Gunners splashed heavy cash to sign Swiss international Granit Xhaka in the summer transfer window. Therefore, signing another defensive midfielder makes little sense.
The former Stoke City player has been in top form for Sevilla who are just a point behind champions Barca and four points behind league leaders Real Madrid (game in hand).
On the other hand, Sevilla have qualified for the KO stages of the Champions League as well and will be playing English champions Leicester City in the Round of 16. Hence, the Spanish side will not want to lose N’Zonzi who has provided a solid cover in front of their defense. This season, in 22 games, Steven has scored 3 goals and provided 1 assist.
In all fairness, Wenger should forget about signing another DM and must splash the cash to sign a top playmaker.
