4 defenders Arsenal could sign in January

Arsenal have defensive problems ahead of Boxing Day in EPL.

Unai Emery’s side hasn’t lost in their last 14 EPL matches, however Gunners coach may face problems in future as Rob Holding will be out for several months, while Laurent Koscielny is yet to come back after the injury he suffered last season.

With only Sokratis and Mustafi in the center, Emery might consider a move for another center back, as he prefers to play with 3-4-3 in recent matches.

Here are 4 options provided by Evening Standard.

Eric Bailly

Current club: Manchester United:

Current market value: €30 m

Why he can leave Manchester United?

Ivory Coast international has poor relationship with Jose Mourinho. Bailly isn’t playing much this season despite being included in starting lineup in the past matches.

Gary Cahill

Current club: Chelsea

Current market value: €10 m

Why he can leave Chelsea?

Cahill doesn’t play under Maurizio Sarri. He can be a short-term replacement for Rob Holding until Arsenal will go for a center back in summer of 2019.
