The Gunners are set to launch a late move to sign out-of-favour Chelsea defender Gary Cahill on loan as Unai Emery looks to ease his defensive injury crisis, according to the Mirror.

We’ve seen our defence ripped apart by a number of injury problems in recent weeks with Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin ruled out for the rest of the season with serious knee ligament injuries.

Sokratis has also been ruled out for the next month after suffering an ankle injury during our FA Cup defeat to Manchester United last Friday while Laurent Koscielny also picked up a jaw problem in that game after being kicked in the face by Romelu Lukaku.

Nacho Monreal and Dinos Mavropanos have only recently returned from long injury lay-off’s so they’re still working their way back to full match fitness meaning head coach Emery is facing a mounting selection headache at the back.
