Five things Arsene Wenger must do to save Arsenal’s season.
The Poland international completed a £4m switch to La Liga from Reims over the summer and has since greatly impressed in the Spanish top tier.
Wenger had an eye on Krychowiak when the 24-year-old was playing in Ligue 1 as well and the midfielder’s form in 2014/15 has convinced the Frenchman the Pole would be the ideal choice to bolster his squad.
There are concerns over the holding role in the Gunners team currently, with both captain Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini not considered good enough for the position.
Wenger hopes that Jack Wilshere can occupy the spot in front of the back four at some point in the future, but is not prepared to rely on the England international on a consistent basis just yet.
Krychowiak could be the ideal solution to this defensive role, but the Polish star’s £24m release clause could prove to be a problem as the North London outfit would not be willing to pay that much for him.
