Charlie Nicholas takes a look at Arsenal’s transfer needs

Saturday Football and Skysports analyst, Charlie Nicholas has highlighted the transfers moves that Arsenal need to make during the now operational January window.

Charlie stated that:

I don’t think much has changed from the summer in that there are a few players Arsene Wenger needs to move on. The key for me is unloading all of the players who are not doing the business to freshen up the squad.

Top of that list is Alexis Sanchez. Just move him on and end this farce. With that money, the top of the list of positions is at least one centre-back – two ideally – but that’s not realistic in this window, so one top centre-back. I’m also interested in us getting a right-back to push Hector Bellerin, with Carl Jenkinson, Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers also on the list of players I would move on.

It has been so poor defensively for four, five seasons and a defensive-minded midfielder would really help us out. I don’t bring Steven N’Zonzi into that party, I’d be more interested in somebody like Abdoulaye Doucouré, who could play a deeper role quite nicely for us.

I also think Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott would want out so we would need cover in those attacking areas and I would consider Wilfried Zaha and would have him ahead of Riyad Mahrez.
