Puyol could be a great signing for Arsenal

Seven games played, with a superior goal difference of 14 has left many accepting this Arsenal side is capable of doing big things this year, however there is an area in which most gooners would like to see strengthened, the central defence. Carles Puyol the latest name to be linked, someone who I never thought of putting on the red and white to be honest but after giving it some thought, he could prove to be a good signing should it happen. The reports claim we want him on a free next summer but I believe if Wenger is interested, he could make a move in January in a cut price deal going into the home straight should we be in the race for the Title and Champions League. Puyol is no doubt a winner, leading Spain to the Euro's and Barcelona to the Champions League last year, and one big ingredient that could prove vital should we get him is the fact he is a big game player, he was a lion at the back for the Catalans when they played United off the park in that final. Puyol has said he wants to test himself in England and why not. His ingredients are suited. Granted his pace might be a little suspect for Arsenal but his intelligence carries him through. He has the heart of a warrior and for me that fighting spirit, tabled with his experience proves he would be a welcome, even if short term addition at Arsenal.
