Many Arsenal fans would have been looking beyond December 25th for their ideal Christmas present. Because they have been crying out for a top anchor man for years and may just get on in January.
We have speculated over the last few months about a variety of big names coming to Arsenal but one who was been less often mentioned could be close to a move to The Emirates in January. The Express reports:
Arsenal close in on Suarez (not that one) as Arsene Wenger eyes spending spree
ARSENAL are edging closer to the signing of Atletico Madrid midfielder Mario Suarez.
Mario Suárez Mata, the 27 year old defensive midfielder, rose through the ranks at Atletico Madrid before moving to Mallorca, after a couple of loan spells, in 2008. But after a couple of years he came back to Madrid and has really blossomed in his second spell at the club.
Since 2010 he’s played 144 games for Madrid scoring thrice. Mata is a real pass master who works hard and keeps things ticking in the midfield. His quality in the engine room has elevated him to the Spain international side, for whom he has played twice since his debut in 2013.
He may not be top of the wanted list for many an Arsenal fan but we think he’s just the sort of player that they need.
Let’s see the lad in action. Arsenal fans: is this guy the answer or would you rather sign a player with more Premier League experience?
