Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says Arsenal need more defenders if they are to challenge for the Premier League title anytime soon.
Carragher Arsene Wenger is short of quality players at the back and must add to this department in the winter transfer window.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said:
“Whether they are conceding goals or racking up clean sheets, Arsenal need another defender – probably two.
“Numbers-wise they are very low in that department, with Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscieley, Nacho Monreal, Kieran Gibbs, Calum Chambers and the currently-injured Mathieu Debuchy the only established players.
“You can’t really expect to get through a whole season with that few players and with Thomas Vermaelen going (to Barcelona) in the summer, I think they need another centre-back to come in, preferably one with pace.
“I also think they could do with a bit more speed in central midfield but strengthening at the back is key for them at the moment.”
