Despite the signing of Petr Cech, numerous holes persist in Arsenal’s squad. From the lack of a prolific forward, to the absence of a leader in the center of defence, Arsene Wenger has a lot of work left to do.
Perhaps one of Arsenal’s largest problems is their lack of a Patrick Vieira-esque midfielder. Sure, Francis Coquelin is in the side, but can Arsenal really rely on a player who has played just one successful season in the top flight?
Elsewhere, Arsenal’s midfield ranks all look strikingly alike. There’s Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, and more. All of these names are attack minded players and most of them are small but technically gifted. However, their miniature size and lack of strength leaves Arsenal’s midfield fragile.

Busquets has been playing at the highest level for many years now with Barcelona and the Spain national team. The Spanish international has won countless honours with the Catalans and was trusted with being the successor to the legendary Xavi Hernandez.
It’s not just his outstanding CV which should have Arsenal fans excited. He could also benefit Wenger’s side incredibly well . Busquets is an exquisite tackler of the ball and his defensive ability is just as good, if not better than Coquelin. He would break the mould of an Arsenal style midfielder with his astute play without the ball.
Busquets has everything
However, the Spain international is not a pure tackler like Coquelin. He has other avenues to his game. In fact, while his defensive skills are very good, his attacking worth surpasses it. Busquets is an incredible passer of the ball. His ability to recycle possession calmly is one of the best in the world, which is a key reason as to why Barcelona won the treble.
With Busquets’ numerous strengths, he would not only provide a unique element to the Arsenal midfield, but he would fit in as well. Signing this midfield maestro might just be key for a strong title challenge.
