With the fantastic form of Arsenal’s center backs this season they haven’t been facing problems in the heart of their defense. In the past Arsenal have known for being vulnerable in the defense department courtesy some poor signings like Squillaci and Djorou. But Arsene Wenger again proved the critics wrong when he signed Mertasacker.

The Big German was criticized for his slow gait and was labeled as ‘weak’ by the pundits, but this season, along with Koscielny they have been rock solid at the back.

At the start of the season The Gunners have cleared the deadwood in their squad and now they lack depth because of Vermaelen’s poor form. Reports suggest that The Gunners have closely monitored the situation for Kyriakos Papadopoulos who has been a sensation for Schalke football club. The Greek International has caught the attention of many European Giants including Manchester United and Barcelona.

ESPN have also reported about the news that Arsenal are after the player and might as well look to land him in the coming January. There are also chances of Gunners being bidding for Draxler and Papadopoulos. So the Arsenal fanbase must be anxious for exciting times in January.
