Who do you think Arsenal need to add to their squad in the Jan transfer window??

Realistically, I dont think they will go for an expensive player in the Jan window. Had heard something about Ribery coming, but I think thats been postponed to June. Also think that the loan deals of Reyes (to Madrid) and Baptista (to us) is for 1 yr (till June), so a full striker is almost certainly ruled out. I would like to see someone like Agbonlahor come in though (the guy has amazing pace) and we dont have someone in the left midfield (position of Pires/Reyes). Would like to see Bentley back (what a goal he scored today against Reading) and fit into that position!! Even a SW Philips (if the price is right) would be welcome but I doubt Chelsea would let him go. A good defender is also very important 'coz we are conceding far too many this season and also scoring less ('coz Henry is not scoring). But who would you guyz like to see in the Arsenal squad this Jan '07. Please post your opinion here (be realistic please)!!

Hey, Ribery seems to be a good prospect!! Atleast he was impressive in the World Cup. SWP would also be an useful addition to the squad, but no way he is worth what Chelsea bought him at, and I doubt Chelsea would let go 4 cheap!! Defence-wise, I think Malouda (again a French) can be a good addition!! An unrealistic suggestion would be Shevchenko (again from Chelsea) who is rumoured to be unhappy at Chelsea. But I think he doesnt want to continue in England and also his price will not be affordable for us!!
