Arsenal looking to make moves for West Ham United duo Scott Parker and James Tomkins
It appears as though Arsenal are going to try and add to West Ham United’s relegation troubles as the North London side is looking to make moves for both, Scott Parker and James Tomkins at the end of the season.
West Ham are expected to have a major clear-out once the season comes to an end and their relegation is confirmed. However, are planning to get their hands on the cream of the crop before anyone else can.
The two players that the Gunners want to land are Parker and Tomkins. Parker has gone on to prove his worth this term, as he went on to win Football Writers Footballer of the Year award. On the other hand, Tomkins has been one of the best defenders on display at Upton Park this season and his solid defensive work at the back has kept West Ham from being humiliated on a number of occasions.
At the moment, two players that Arsenal could really use are a holding midfielder and a defender. Those two areas of the Gunners roster lack depth and seem be to be amongst the reasons for Arsenal failing to win anything this term. are the two most competent players to play as defensive midfielders at Arsenal, however, recent developments in the duo leads us to think otherwise. Both Song and Wilshere have evolved their game and now look to be more threatening when they play a slightly more creative role and create play, rather than break it up. As a result, should Parker join Arsenal, he is going to find himself playing in the first-team almost immediately.
Arsenal’s defence is something that has been talked about time and time again, this season. The Gunners back-line can either be brilliant, or be the source of their very problem. Currently, Arsenal have and Sebastien Squillaci from whom to pick their centre-backs. Just looking at those names, makes it easy for anyone to assess that the team really needs to invest in bringing in at least one or two defenders in the summers.
Tomkins happens to be a player who has ample Premier League experience and he has also proven that he has what it takes to play at the highest level. At the same time, the fact that he is still only 22 years old means that he has more than enough time to adapt to the Arsenal style of play.
