Arsenal Need Scott Dann as New Counterpart to Thomas Vermaelen

(Bleacher Report)Scott Dann is another key target that Arsene Wenger will be watching closely over the next few weeks in anticipation of possibly making a move before the end of the window.

The young Birmingham City player has enjoyed more domestic trophy success than anyone on the Gunners side in the last season. The only current member of Arsene Wenger’s side is new boy Gervinho who enjoyed winning the French Ligue 1 Orange Championship last year.

Dann is believed to be valued around £10 million and if the offer is right he could more than certainly head to the Emirates as the Blues will be looking to continue shedding wages after suffering relegation.

The combination of a healthy Tomas Vermaelen and Scott Dann could produce a great offensive as well as defensive partnership for the Gunners as both players are excellent defenders with an eye for the goal.

Vermaelen’s injury also is one more reason why the arrival of Dann could be more of a necessity than a want as there are few options left for Wenger. His current remaining crop is not much to be spoken for. If Wenger is forced to endure another season with his star center back injured, his team will have a hard time overcoming their poor back line no matter how good their offense is.
