Premier League

Arteta's new defensive priority and how Soares could be the key for him solidifying his backline

Takehiro Tomiyasu, Arsenal's right back, has so far been one of the best Premier league signings whose instant impact is unqeustionable. 


Although this is so, Arteta is reportedly considering bringing one of three right backs on top of their game in the Premier League. It may be surprising to hear such reports, but the revelation about Arteta's desire for a new right back is being fueled by the notion that Arteta is not convinced about Tomiyasu's attacking threat, thus he seeks to sign either Brighton's Tariq Lamptey or Norwich's Max Aaron or Leicester's Justin, to sort out his right wing attacking deficiency. Apparently, the funds for this transfer move are to be raised from the sale of Cedric Soares

If one of these is signed, many believe Arterta could switch to a 3-4-3 formation which could see Gabriel Maghales, Ben White, and Tomiyasu in his defense while Tierney and the new right back feature as wingbacks.


Is signing another right back a wise move by Arteta? Plus, can a 3-4-3 formation work for Arsenal? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
