These three clubs are all crying out for success, and are experiencing differing starts to the season to say the least, but all of them are crying out for the one signing that could bring them success and here are the players that can fill those gaps nicely.
Arsenal – Need midfielder
Arsene has a squad chock-a-block with young talent, but many Gunners fans believe they are still a little light in the midfield, given the summer departures of Mathieu Flamini and Gilberto Silva. One man who is said to be available to fill that position is Yaya Toure, a player who has found himself frozen out at Barcelona. And of course having Yaya’s big brother at the club could help things and would give the club the edge over some of the big clubs also monitoring the Ivorian.
Liverpool – Need striker
With Torres having had a couple of knocks and injuries already this season, and with Robbie Keane not exactly setting the world alight, it appears that Rafa could do with a striker with experience to help ease the load and cover for El Nino. Having sold Peter Crouch, Benitez doesn’t have a lot of strength in depth in the front third, so maybe they need to spend in January to insure against further problems? One player who could fit the bill is Lukas Podolski. The German international is almost certainly going to leave Bayern Munich either next summer or earlier, and he could be a very clever signing for the Merseyside club. He is a proven goalscorer who is more than likely to be up for moving to such a huge club, and would welcome the challenge at Anfield. It is also possible that Rafa could fit the adaptable Podolski as well as Keane and Torres in what would be a very attacking front three.
Spurs – Need midfielder
For a long time now, Juande Ramos’s midfield has looked light in the tackle and low on determination. One player said to be on the Tottenham radar is former England international Scott Parker and I have to say he does seem like the perfect fit. The 28-year-old midfielder still has a lot to give and, with his club in need of cash, they could well accept a decent offer from the White Hart Lane outfit. Parker may see a move to Spurs rejuvenate his career and get him back into the England reckoning. He has the grit and desire that is sadly lacking at the club right now and would be a relatively cheap addition.
