Arsenal - 2 more weeks to secure a center back?

Latest news is a set back for the Gunners with Vermaelen heading under the knife for his nagging ankle injury. That is not good, especially with Squillaci injured as well. Arsenal's slim EPL title hopes have taken a bigger hit with this news. The latest news is that old friend Sol Campbell might be in the mix....seriously? I am not sure the old man is a viable option nor is having the likes of Djourou or even Song filling in more at center back a real option. With the names of Upson, Cahill or Samba as potential transfer targets, I just hope that Wenger makes a move. Arsenal need to shore up the center back role and soon, otherwise I think the slim title hopes will rapidly melt away.

Who should Wenger purchase? I also think he needs another that can actually put the ball in the goal!!!

I think Djourou has been the best Centre back out of the 3. I really hope they get a good one by the next two weeks though. Really upset to hear about the Vermaelen news.

Also I don't think we need another striker. Van Persie is getting his old self back and we have midfield players who score as much as strikers, like Nasri.

I've always thought Samba was quite good.
