Arsenal are a tad late to the party, but they are very close to signing two new players. Their rivals have all signed at least two new players, but Arsenal’s exploitation of the transfer market means that they could bring in Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez in a matter of days, as reported by Talksport. The fans are obviously jubilant at this news, which has been in circulation for a few days now. However, they will now be wondering who is next on the shopping list.
I am personally wondering who Arsenal are lining up because beyond Sanchez and Debuchy, not much has been reported. There have been hints that a defensive midfielder, striker, centre-back and back-up goalkeeper will be brought in. Who do Arsenal need to focus on first though?
It was apparently made clear that the Gunners would be trying to bring in a striker next season, but if they are successful in signing Alexis Sanchez then the need to buy another expensive attacker is reduced. As Arsenal are seemingly not chasing a big-name striker, they may be content with bringing in a cheaper option that is not sought after by everybody. The reduced competition would not only make them more likely to get their man, but also for a relatively low price.
I think Arsenal should be eyeing up a defensive midfielder next, as they need to pay up to replace Mikel Arteta who simply doesn’t have the fitness to start and finish every game of the Premier League season. He will still be a very important player, but he shouldn’t be starter. Therefore, I think the Gunners need a player who is both for the long-term and ready to play for a team like Arsenal now.

Saturday lunch times are becoming synonymous with Liverpool on the television and this time they tackle local rivals Everton. Despite some hiccups in the cup competitions, Liverpool have been red hot in the Premiership, winning their last five in the league. Expect them to avenge the 3-0 defeat they suffered at Everton last September.
Aston Villa are looking nervously at the relegation places after winning just once in their last 14 matches. Their win came against struggling Watford and they face another troubled side in West Ham United this weekend. Villa are usually tough to beat at home and should get all three points.
Home wins seems to be the order of the day, with Blackburn looking to overturn a run of three losses in their last four league matches against Sheffield United, while Chelsea should make it an away day jolly when they face Charlton Athletic at the Valley.
Fulham are draw specialists this Togel Online season and prior to their defeat at Sheffield United, their previous six matches ended all square. They face Newcastle United who have been hit and miss this season, but with both sides strong in attack but hopeless in defence, a high scoring draw is not beyond the realm of possibility.
Reading are pressing for a place in Europe next season and should get at least a point from their trip to Manchester City. Stuart Pearce’s side have been inconsistent this season while Reading are unbeaten so far in 2007.
Watford are seven points from safety and host Bolton who have not won in five games. Wanderers could get their season back on track with a win at Vicarage Road as they are still within touching distance of the coveted fourth Champions League spot.
