I know that Arsene Wenger often tends to get any Arsenal transfer deals completed with the clock ticking down towards the end of a transfer window (personally I think that he does this just to see us suffer) and the Frenchman may well do so again in the upcoming January window.
If he does, though, I really hope it is not our first or only signing of the month, because I really want to see the Frenchman seal a deal nice and early. I would love for it to be Dimitri Payet and a piece in The Mirror gives me hope as they are reporting that Arsenal are strong favourites to land the West Ham and France star.
As well as feeling that Payet would add some extra quality and attacking threat to the side, I believe that the early transfer of a top player, and it does not have to be Payet, would give the whole club a timely lift as we head into the crucial second half of a season that we are all hoping turns out to be the one in which Arsenal regain the title of English champions.
The question is, does Wenger see the need to give Arsenal a big boost and will he do anything about it?
