The latest poll at Vital Arsenal asks “Which defender we`ve been linked with would you prefer?”.

Over the past few weeks we`ve been linked heavily with three Premiership defenders, and we`re wondering which of these 3, if any, would gooners most like to see in the famous red and white.

Chris Samba has been a long term linkee for the Gunners, big, powerful and aerially adept the Blackburn defender appears at face value to be just what we`re looking for.

Bolton`s Gary Cahill is another player who we`ve been linked with before, highly rated (there it is again ? arrgghh) and wanted by a few other teams, the centre back has worked his way into the England team so therefore must possess “English grit” ?. Unfortunately English grit comes with a price.

Phil Jagielka has played all over the park in his career, even between the sticks, the Everton man has a wealth of experience and a surname that means we could pass him off as a foreigner as not to blight out Anglo-phobic image.

Of course you might be of the opinion that our great club should be aiming higher when looking to sign players to marshall our defence, if that is the case then a “none of the above” answer is available to you!

The poll can be found at the bottom right handside of this page.
