Danny Welbeck's goal this past weekend highlighted the Gunners' lack of physicality in the heart of their defense. Who better to add physicality than the very person Wenger criticized?
Ryan Shawcross has made a career of being a hard-nosed, no-nonsense, tough-tacking defender. Just ask Aaron Ramsey, who was sidelined by Shawcross in early 2010.
Shawcross' 6'3'' frame will also help Arsenal in both defending and executing dead ball situations.
At only 23, Shawcross is the youngest on this list, but has shown composure beyond his years, which helped convince Tony Pulis to name the young Englishman Stoke captain for the 2010-11 season.
While bringing in Shawcross would certainly have a mixed reception, the Stoke defender would no doubt add some much needed grit to the North London side.
