In his hour of need, Arsene Wenger has turned his eyes naturally, to Stewart Downing.
The Mail story goes on to say that Wenger believes that Downing has the technical ability to play for Arsenal and Arsene likes the fact he can play left-back which is a problem position for Arsenal. Well, yes he can in theory play left-back, the same way in theory I can. Honestly, you couldn't make it up. Actually, you can.
