Arsene Wenger may be playing down the need for Arsenal to make some signing when the mid-season transfer window opens up in January, but Arsenal fans will feel differently and are hoping that the lack of spending during the summer, when we all expected a big splurge from the club, will not happen again.
The really big name being mentioned in a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours is the Monaco and France international winger Thomas Lemar, who it seems clear that Wenger did try to sign in the summer and so we could be set to try again.
Not as big a name, perhaps, but a pretty big transfer story nonetheless, is being reported by The Mirror. That is because the player in question, 21-year old Belgian Charly Musonda, is currently on the books of our direct Premier League title rivals Chelsea.
The report claims that Musonda is ready to quit Stamford Bridge after turning down a loan deal in the summer only to be largely ignored by Antonio Conte this season. Wenger is keen, apparently, and could be set to offer the talented youngster a lifeline in January.
I know we would rather see Lemar come to north London, but what do you make of the Musonda rumours Gooners?
