Arsenal fans will be desperately hoping for some action from Arsene Wenger in the transfer market during the January transfer window and for many of us it is a case of the sooner, the better. Our poor old nerves cannot stand up to another final few days of tension and nerve-wracking waiting for the manager to bring in the players that we need to enjoy a strong second half of the season.
Well according to a Metro report we might have one less thing to worry about by the end of the week. The paper claims that Wenger is due to make a £25 million transfer swoop for the Sporting Lisbon and Portugal international star William Carvalho, in an attempt to finally silence the questions about the sort centre at the heart of the Arsenal midfield.
The 22-year old defensive midfielder has apparently already made it clear that he wants to come and play in the Premier League and it was reported that the Gunners were trying to sign Carvalho in the summer until talks broke down.
We have also been heavily linked with Morgan Schneiderlin of Southampton and Moussa Sissoko of Newcastle in recent weeks, who are both all-round central midfielders but if the report is true, then Wenger really has seen the need for a proper combative and defensively minded player in the middle. Would you be happy with this transfer?
