I'm sure you're wondering if Arsenal really needs another defender at this point. They do if you consider that Arteta was looking for a left-footed defender in the summer, and Arsenal's interest in then-Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez justifies this. So, why did Arteta want a left-footed defender? Gabriel Maghales appears to be Arsenal's only reliable left-footed center-back. Many people wonder why Arteta can't seem to rest him, and the answer is probably because there isn't anyone as good as him.
The arrival of Ndicka might aid Arteta in solving his defensive lineup selection issues. Anyway, if you're curious about how Arsenal completed the Ndicka transaction, the Eintracht Frankfurt player's current contract expires in the summer of 2019, and since extension talks are not on the menu, he was expected to either leave for nothing in the summer or for a low price in the winter. It appears he will remain where he is until the summer, when he will join Arsenal.
Many teams, including AS Roma and Tottenham Hotspurs, who were interested in signing the 23-year-old, have suffered greatly as a result of his move to Arsenal.
