Mikel Arteta and Edu told Arsenal’s January transfer priority and it’s not a striker

Bacary Sagna, a former Arsenal defender, has urged the club to buy a centre-back in the January transfer window.

Bacary Sagna, a former Arsenal right-back, has urged technical director Edu that the club should recruit a centre-back in January.

The Gunners have been on a tear recently, avoiding loss in each of their past ten games while also strengthening their defense, surrendering only four goals in their last eight Premier League games.

Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale, and Takehiro Tomiyasu, who signed in the summer, have all settled in nicely to help Mikel Arteta’s side become more solid at the back, and Sagna has pushed the north Londoners to add depth in the coming months.

“The team is quite complete at the moment,” he revealed exclusively to football.london through freebets.com.

“They’ll most likely require a centre-back.” It’s not like they’re not giving it their all, and while White and Gabriel appear to be in good condition, and Tomiyasu is outstanding, they must avoid injury.

“To press on, you’ll need a center-back for cover to guarantee you don’t surrender.” To generate and score opportunities, they have (Bukayo) Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, and Auba(meyang).

The former France international also believes his former club can win at Anfield on Saturday evening.

“Arsenal will be put to the test against Liverpool,” he continued.

“If Arsenal wins, it will send a message that they can compete.” I believe they can beat Liverpool and cause them issues, but only if they continue to play like they have in recent weeks, with the same runs and intensity.”

Jurgen Klopp’s team suffered a 3-2 setback to West Ham United in their most recent match, putting them only two points ahead of Arsenal heading into this weekend’s highly anticipated meeting.
