Charlie Nicholas reckons Arsenal need to sign two defenders before the end of the January transfer window.
Following a disappointing performance in their 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield United over the weekend, ten-man Arsenal put in a promising display to hold Chelsea to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
Tenth-placed Arsenal have conceded 34 goals, more than any other side in the top half apart from in-form Southampton, who occupy ninth position.
“There’s not much time to go [in the January transfer window], but I’d like to see some defenders in. We need two defenders in,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.
“I don’t mean to be disrespectful but you see David Luiz last night and you see the mess Shkodran Mustafi made for the goal. It’s still evident that Arsenal are so bad at the back.
“Hector Bellerin coming back is obviously a boost but there are problems all over the defensive set-up. We need defenders to come in and help the current situation.”
