We are less than a month away from the winter transfer window, and there are some interesting players linked with an Arsenal move.
Jonny Evans was strongly linked with a switch in the summer, with many believing he was lined up to replace Inter Milan target Shkodran Mustafi, but no move prevailed. We are claimed to be favourites to land him in the coming window also, and he may well look to jump from West Brom’s sinking ship.
One player who we are strongly expected to quit his club in the coming window is Steven N’Zonzi, as his club admits that he is currently training alone following a fall-out. The midfielder is currently in London visiting his son, but there is plenty of talk claiming he is eyeing a potential move, with us as favourites for his signing also.
Another central midfielder we are supposedly looking at bringing in next month is Real Madrid’s fringe star Dani Cabellos. The 21 year-old is struggling to battle with the likes of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric and is supposedly considering a move in search of more regular action.
Alexis Sanchez on the other hand is now being strongly linked with a move in the opposite direction. Real Madrid are tipped to be keen to bring him to the Bernabeu, and are supposedly willing to ditch Lucas Vazquez to make room for him.
Another winger who could potentially leave in the near future is Theo Walcott. The speedster is believed to have been told he can go in the coming window, but finding a club who would be willing to match his wages could prove a stumbling block.
Olivier Giroud is one who is being urged to leave, but not by anyone employed in North London. France international assistant coach Guy Stephan has called for him to leave as his current minutes is insufficient, and his place in the international squad is at risk should things continue ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
Which winter signing would benefit our team most? Could we really offload both Giroud and Walcott next month?
