Arsene Wenger may not add anymore forwards into the squad but he would be looking for an experienced defender.
Spanish defender, Carles Puyol, 31, has been linked for a move to the Premiership at the end of the season. Arsenal is his most likely destination.
The Barcelona defender's contract ends on June 2010. He had been expected to sign a new deal with Barca but
the deal has still not been agreed.
Who would he replace, Gallas? Yes, he and Vermaelen would be a great partner but would he adapt to English football?
Thomas Vermaelen has adapted well in his two months at Arsenal. Currently, he scored five goals in all competition this season.
