There is two weeks left before the transfer window slams shut, and Arsenal’s business looks far from complete at present.
There are a number of players linked with the exit door, with certain fringe players touted for moves, but there is a new player being linked with a move away today.
Shkodran Mustafi is supposedly talking to Inter Milan about a move this month, with Rob Holding having supposedly usurped him in the pecking order for first-team football. The German was a £34 Million signing last summer, and would surely not be available despite a mixed opening campaign with the club, but the Serie A side are trying to tempt him away at present.
Should we manage to offload some players, Julian Draxler is a realistic target to bolster our attacking options. This German international has been told that he can leave the club following the arrival of Neymar from Barcelona this month, and has had a £32 Million asking price slapped on his head. Arsenal have been known suitors of his signature for some time now, and could well land him for a more than reasonable fee.
Should we fail to sign the above, we could well return for Juan Cuadrado of Juventus. We are said to have made an enquiry about his signature earlier in the window, only to dither with their reply, and he is likely to have unfinished business in the Premier League.
Aleksandr Golovin is another player who could be added to our midfield ranks in the current window. The 21 year-old Russian was watched during the Confederations Cup this summer, and is happy to be linked with our club.
Should Draxler be our number one target? Do we need more than one creative star added to the squad?
