Collymore - Toure and Modric would win Gunners the league

Arsene Wenger In Emirates Press Conference 2

Stan Collymore has revealed the two signings he thinks could win Arsenal the league.

Former Liverpool and England forward Stan Collymore has suggested there are two players who could win Arsenal the Premier League title.

The Gunners remain linked with some of the best players from all over Europe but Collymore suggests it’s Yaya Toure of Manchester City and Luka Modric of Real Madrid who would make the difference for Arsene Wenger.

Arsena;l are well stocked in terms of creative and attacking midfielders but Collymore has a point with Toure in the respect of the City star’s physical presence in the middle of his team.

Toure cuts a very large and imposing figure who is just as capable of protecting his defence as he is getting forward to create an extra goal threat in attack.

Modric is a more interesting one because Arsenal have several players who are gifted in possession and can control games with the ball at their feet such as Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and the returning Mesut Ozil.

Oddly, Collymore didn’t suggest a striker when he was asked the question by a fan on Twitter, which is amazing considering the criticism Olivier Giroud has received this week and the pressure on Wenger to sign a world class forward.

Arsenal still have time left to add players in the transfer market and even if they don’t they’ll still be a decent bet for silverware on all fronts this season.
