Six potential free agent signings for the Gunners.
Arsenal have been plunged into something of a defensive crisis in recent weeks, with right back Mathieu Debuchy having been ruled out for up to three months and doubts also having emerged over the fitness of Calum Chambers and Nacho Monreal, leading to teenager Hector Bellerin making his debut against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League this week.
There have been some whispers that Arsene Wenger may delve into the free transfer market to help solve his issues, with unattached players still able to be signed and registered, although the quality on offer is not entirely ideal. Here are six potential solutions from the Mirror:
Former West Ham United and Leeds United full back George McCartney had a largely uneventful career before finding himself without a club this summer, but has been known as a solid and dependable, if unspectacular, performer in the Premier League over a number of years. Whilst he may not have the requisite quality to be a genuine solution for Arsenal, he could offer some dependable short-term cover.
