William Gallas urges Arsenal to make new signings in January

Former Arsenal captain William Gallas believes the club should make changes to the squad when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year. The north London giants have endured a difficult 2020/21 campaign in the Premier League and they have attained just 14 points from 13 games into the season.

That is already their worst ever start since the league was formed in 1992 and that has led to criticism from a certain section of the fans. Gunners boss Mikel Arteta continues to retain the support from the hierarchy and a major section of the supporters, but there is bound to be some transfer activity at the turn of the year.

After a lot of doubts were raised about the experience of the former Arsenal midfielder when it comes to coaching world-class players, the 38-year-old has been able to create a strong impression. He has clearly learned a lot from his time under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. For several years, Arsenal were criticised as a team who could not perform in away matches against the top six.

Such a criticism has come to an end with Arsenal registering a 1-0 win over Manchester United last weekend. This was the first away win against a top six outfit by Arsenal in the last five years. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the penalty that provided a victory for the gunners. Wright says that Arsenal have done plenty of good business during the summer and it is again a sign of maturity from Arteta. The former Arsenal forward expects the positivity to continue going forward. Even after a run of four victories from the opening seven matches, Arsenal find themselves in the ninth place of the table. This is largely down to a string of good performances from teams like Leicester, Southampton, Wolves, and Aston Villa.
