With Arsenal currently locked in at number three in the Premier League, there seems to be an added emphasis this season to bolster a team that can and will finally win a trophy after almost five seasons of 'close, but no cigar'.
However, with the January transfer window at its midpoint, Arsenal are still looking toward adding a center back after Thomas Vermaelen suffered yet another setback to his long-term Achilles injury, which has already ruled him out for almost five months, and injuries to Sébastien Squillaci haven't helped the cause either.
Offensively Arsenal have lacked a little in the last few weeks, especially from the left side. And despite Wenger stating that he is "desperate" to retain the services of Andrey Arshavin, there are plenty of Arsenal fans that disagree with Lille winger Eden Hazard a leading candidate to eventually replace Arshavin in the future.
So looking onwards here are some candidates that Mr. Wenger should consider before the window shuts and before it's too late.
