It was a disappointing January for Arsenal, with veteran midfielder Kim Kallstrom the only addition to the Gunners squad.

Critics are already claiming boss Arsene Wenger bottled the club’s best chance in years to push for the Premier League title by failing to invest, but others argue there is no value in the January market.

We take a look at three players Arsenal could, and should, have signed this month:

Dimitar Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov

The sultry Bulgarian is not everyone’s cup of tea but he comes with bags of ability and, crucially, experience of winning the Premier League. The 32-year-old wanted out of Fulham, was keen to stay in London and was available for almost nothing. Doubtless Arsene Wenger had reservations over his temperament and commitment, but the former Spurs striker would have been a worthy deputy for Olivier Giroud in the matches against lesser sides and would have also provided a different option from the bench. As it is, Arsenal are now one injury to Giroud away from playing Nicklas Bendtner against the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham in the coming months. On deadline day, Berbatov signed for Monaco on loan until the end of the season.
