It could only happen at Arsenal couldn’t it. We lose our right back with a broken leg, so what do we do? Yes you’ve guessed it we are after a left back, well according to reports today we are anyway.
The player in question is the Tunisian left back Aymen Abdennour of French Club Toulouse, for whom he signed in the summer from Tunisian club Etoile du Sahel, but he can also play in midfield.
Abdennour, 22, has played in seven of Toulouse’s Ligue 1 fixtures this season, and he has impressed, and helped them to fourth in the table just three points behind the leaders Paris Saint Germain.
According to talkSPORT Abdennour is well known to Arsene Wenger and the scouts at Arsenal because he has been watched before during his loan spell with Werder Bremen last year. The report goes on to say that he has been watched this season as well, and we could make a move for him in January. Perhaps Per Mertesacker has put in a good word for him with the boss!
A left back that can play left midfield. I don’t mean to be cynical, but haven’t we just bought Andre Santos for £6million to play in those very same positions. Oh well you can’t beat strength in depth I suppose! Anyone know much about this guy let us know your thoughts?
