Players Arsenal should buy in the Winter Transfer Windows

The season is nearly halfway, and the transfer windows is going to be opened soon. Arsenal, which occupied fifth place, has been hit by injuries, especially on the backline, with all the fullback are out. Bacary Sagna, Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson, and Andre Santos are not available. While upfront, Wenger wouldn't able to play Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh because of the African Cup. Not only because unavailability of the players, it would be wise for Wenger to bring in some players as Arsenal seems too dependant on the first team players - the second teams has too big gap with the first team players. Here are some player Arsenal should buy in the winter transfer windows to bolster the team.

1. Mario Goetze
A great player who surely would add some qualities for Arsenal. Despite his age, he has shown a great maturity, as well as great vision. He primarily plays as a playmaker, but he also could ocassionally play in the wing. With Andrey Arshavin nearing the exit door, Goetze would perfectly replace the Russian. Considering the current form, Mario Goetze is far better than Arshavin. However, he wouldn't be available for cheap. Dortmund values him around thirty million pounds, and we know Arsene Wenger is not the man who like to spend a lot. Dortmund also is not likely to release him in this transfer windows. Well, it is more likely - if Wenger really interested in bringing him - to scoop him in the end of the season.

2. Eden Hazard
Another superb player, who is said to be fitted in Arsenal style of play. Could play in either wing, and is technically gifted. A former team mate of Gervinho, and could reunite again soon. Like Goetze, he wouldn't be available for cheap. A transfer fee over 30 million would be needed to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.

3. Mauricio Isla
Has been in superb form this season with Udinese, tirelessly playing the ball down the right flank. A dependable full back, but could also play in the central midfield - an unlikely position he would play in Arsenal. With Sagna and Jenkinson is still out. He would be perfect for Arsenal, replacing Sagna and Jenkinson.

4. Lukas Podolski
A German national team regular players, but somehow doesn't really shine in the club level. Said that he admired Arsenal, and he has been linked to move to emirates. The move to Emirates is quite possible, as the contract for him runs out on 2013. Could plays down the left wing, but also able to play in the central striker, giving option for Wenger to back-up van Persie.
