Arsenal had a very turbulent summer in which two of their most important players, Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, departed the Emirates and manager Arsene Wenger waited until the last two days of the transfer window to splash the money to acquire as many as five new players, though Yossi Benayoun was signed on a season-long loan deal.
This is one of the most difficult seasons ever for Wenger, who has faced huge pressure since Arsenal's terrible start to the season. However, the Gunners, who were in the bottom half after their defeats to Blackburn and Tottenham, have made a strong comeback with five wins on the trot in the league before the draw against Fulham. They are firmly in contention for the top four places though it will be difficult, but if Wenger does make the right moves in the January transfer window, they do have a good chance of achieving success in the near future.
The Gunners will be awaiting the return of key players Bacary Sagna and Jack Wilshere for the second half of the season but the addition of Mario Goetze could be massive in Arsenal's pursuit of Champions League places. According to the Mirror, Borussia Dortmund's Mario Goetze is Arsenal's top target and here are 11 reasons why Arsenal have to sign the midfielder.
