Arsenal fans may be delighted about the possibility of the club finally recruiting a new face this month and that is a justified excitement, considering the fact that the Gunners are not usually the most active team during most transfer windows.
With the gossip of Layvin Kurzawa being the man that Mikel Arteta now wants, there might be someone else to fill-in at left-back where Arsenal are down to bare bones at the moment.
However, the real question is whether Kurzawa is a worthy solution to the Gunners’ problem. And that concern is based on the fact that the Frenchman has a long record of injuries over his career.
A snapshot of Kurzawa’s history of injuries over the past couple of years reveals he has spent a lot of time on the sidelines, something that most fans of the Gunners are familiar with and have often bemoaned.
Therefore, some may wonder what the point is in signing a desperately injury-prone player to cover for another desperately injury-prone player.
Perhaps, Mikel Arteta is simply better off keeping faith in young Bukayo Saka instead of spending wages on another man who may well spend more time in the treatment room than the actual pitch.
