Benedikt Howedes

Howedes was a potential answer to Arsenal’s defensive gaps in the winter, but we opted for Paulista instead. However, now that the 27-year old German has mentioned that England may be his next stop, the rumors have risen from the dead.

“I can imagine going abroad to gain a new experience and I think England is possibly my next destination” he said, as reported by the Express.

Barring an unforeseen exit on the defensive line, I can’t see this move happening either. With Paulista and the emergence of Hector Bellerin, Arsenal’s defense is all of a sudden not the problem anymore.
