2. Ben Chilwell

Okay, this one is a bit of a wildcard but I don’t mind throwing it out there. I know it’s unrealistic, but Arsenal should seriously consider the option of signing Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell.

As far as I’m aware, the Gunners haven’t been linked with a move for the Englishman but their London rivals Chelsea have. And this should give the club all the motivation they need to steal their rival’s transfer target.

Not only would they be strengthening a position of need, but they would also be weakening a league rival in Leicester and rubbing salt into Chelsea’s wounds; the perfect trio. I can dream, right?

Chilwell is an exceptional defender and he has been key to Leicester’s resurgence this season. Not only has he completed his defensive duties well, but he’s also been an exceptional asset to the final third for the Foxes.

Kolasinac’s creative and crossing abilities is what gets him game time, nothing else really since he defends like a headless chicken. That said, Chilwell would replace those creative abilities well since hs is a great crosser of the ball and he can overlap his left-sided winger well.
