Take a risk Arsenal and sign up £40 milion Premier League star Ake to help solve issues
Arsenal can solve their defensive issues in January with the signing of Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.
Arsenal may have improved the back-line during the summer transfer window, but they failed to acquire the type of players that would make a serious impact in the premier League, and once again, they are struggling to keep clean sheets.
Arsenal know they need to start spending the big money and signing the kind of world class players that their rivals are currently acquiring if they have a chance of picking up the Premier League in the next couple of seasons, and they need to get more solid defenders than the likes of David Luiz
And one man that has been making all the right noise in the Premier League over the past few seasons is that of Ake.
Emery is insistent on playing out from the back and does not have the personnel to do so, but Ake has shown that he is comfortable on the ball wherever he has been and has the ability to help the Spaniard play the kind of football that brings success at the top level.
And considering Arsenal need to add some pace to their back-line, Ake is quick for a centre-back, something that Emery needs to add to his defence as the best Premier League strikers are no slow coaches, they all have the pace to get through the middle of the Arsenal back-line.
And most importantly of all for Arsenal, Ake has proven that he has the ability and quality to cope with the best players in the Premier League, and that is because he is already adapted to the quality of the English game, something a player from outside the Premier League would have to contend with if Emery brought in players from another country.
The bottom line is that Ake would be an upgrade on Arsenal’s current centre-backs, some may say that is not difficult, but there is also plenty of potential still left in him and for the £40 million that Arsenal could snap him up for in the coming transfer windows, he would be a great long-term investment for the club too that could make an immediate impact on the current Arsenal side.
Arsenal fans are sick of seeing talented youngsters arrive at the club and would like the club to take a bigger risk and land a big name, as well as a player like Ake.
