Player: Etienne Capoue | Club: Arsenal
Arsene Wenger is experiencing his most difficult season yet as Arsenal manager and one of the problems has been his side’s habit of conceding sloppy goals after leaving the back for exposed.
Mikel Arteta has given his all in trying to fulfil this role since the sale of Alex Song to Barcelona but he does not do it naturally and his lack of mobility has been exposed at times.
France international Capoue has been linked with a switch to Emirates Stadium and he would provide the Gunners with exactly what they need were he to make the move.
Powerful and quick, Capoue has the necessary physical qualities to provide a formidable screen in front of the Arsenal defence, though is technically gifted enough to fulfil the creative element of Arteta’s role.
