The Summer transfer window came to an abrupt close on September the first thus ensuring the host of rumours and player movements were ended, for now. Arsenal fans were left extremely disappointed after manager Arsene Wenger failed to fix the ongoing problems at the Gunners.
Having gone five years with out succeeding with silverware, fans and the footballing world alike expected Wenger to dig deep and pursue vigorously for the necessary talent. Many feel Arsenal trophy absence is due to their lack of presence in the keeping department.
Since Jens Lehman departure in 2008, deputies Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski have performed miserably at the front of the helm. Despite at times looking solid, the pair have a severe tendency to make vital errors consistently and struggle with lapses in concentration and decision making.
However Wenger was unable to cure his keeping conundrum by adding new talent. Albeit there were a ton of rumours, nothing materialized for the Gunners and Wenger is now forced to continue on with his shaky duo. Although the Frenchman does boast to promising talents in Vito Mannone and Wojciech Szczensy, it is unlikely either will be utilized due to their lack of experience.
So January will emerge as Wenger next opportunity to restructure his roster and here are five players he must sign.
