Gunners attempt last minute reinforcements for transfer deadline day.
Arsenal are reportedly lining up a deal for two defenders before the end of the transfer window, with manager Arsene Wenger finally losing patience with his haphazard defenders.
fanatix tickets – El Clasico tickets are still available for the biggest derby match in Europe.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona tickets are on sale for this massive La Liga clash at the Bernabeu on March 3rd.
Whilst Wenger often earns criticism for the side’s defending, it is also fair to say that the astonishing amount of mistakes made by his back five is surely not the fault of the coaching staff.
Who could have predicted that every Arsenal player would fall over simultaneously for both Liverpool goals on Wednesday evening?
Wenger is believed to be looking at reinforcements at both left back and centre half to sign before the transfer deadline passes tonight: Nacho Monreal of Malaga CF is thought to be the left back in mind, with Spanish station Radio Marca reporting he is already on his way to London, but reports Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta is the central defender appear to be wide of the mark.
The 27 year-old has travelled with his team to face Valladolid, and so a transfer seems particularly unlikely.
Instead, Swansea City centre half Chico Flores and Rayo Vallecano man Alejandro Galvez, who have each excelled this season and could be ready to make the step up to a big club such as Arsenal.
Malaga star Nacho Monreal would be an impressive signing too – especially in the wake of the injury suffered by Kieran Gibbs. Monreal is a Spain international, but Barcelona star Jordi Alba is ahead of him in the Spain hierarchy.
It would be the second Arsenal transfer raid on Malaga CF in recent history after Santi Cazorla moved to Emirates Stadium last summer.
