Arsenal Close in to Sign $19 million Playmaker

Alessio Cerci TorinoArsenal finished their Champions League group as runner ups and have been impressive in the competition.

However, in premier league, Arsenal have shown the usual inconsistency under the management of Wenger.

The club is no way near capable of competing for the title and need more world class players to turn the situation around.

The Gunners are very weak in defense lacking a top defensive midfielder and center half as well.

Still, they are linked with more playmakers even when they have so many at their disposal already.

According to latest reports, Arsenal are closing in to sign Italian winger Alessio Cerci.

The 27 year old winger was linked with a move to Emirates in summer as well but ended up signing for Spanish champions Atletico Madrid.

Since his move to La Liga, Cerci has normally found himself frustrated on the bench as he has just played 5 games in the league.

Last season, he was one of the best attackers in Serie A as he netted 13 goals and provided 12 assists for Torino.

With him warming the bench more often than not, Arsenal are all set to take advantage and have begun talks to secure his services in the winter transfer window.

However, starting place is surely not guaranteed at Arsenal as well with players like Sanchez, Cazorla, Ramsey, Chamberlain, Ozil etc already there.

    It’s not the area of our midfield which needs strengthened why can Arsene not see that and why do our scouting team not point this out to him? They should be telling him of the need for a holding midfielder and centre backs.Wenger had all summer to access the areas we were weakest and sign players who would provide cover.He had the opportunity to sign Micha Richards who is an arsenal fan,and experience in the pl he can also play any position in the back line.Wake up arsene address our weak areas and help us to compete as a trophy winning team again,or else resign and let some-else take over.
