There is just over a week left of the winter transfer window remaining, and despite Arsenal not looking likely to sign any first team players, the speculation has remained pretty constant.
The latest reports are mostly talking of potential summer moves, but one deal that is hoped to be in place is that of Goncalo Guedes.
The Benfica winger has been linked with our club for a couple of windows now, and at 20 years of-age remains one of the brightest young talents on the continent. Guedes has notched up seven goals in all competitions this term and is supposedly being offered to Arsenal. The Primeira Liga side are looking to offload some players currently, and their club president is supposedly in London to try and carve out a sale.
Another player we have been linked with for a little while now is Wolfsburg left-back Ricardo Rodriguez. Juventus are now said to be ready to rival us and Inter Milan in chasing his signature this summer, which doesn’t bode well for us with the defender supposedly keen on a Serie A switch.
One Italian-based player we are linked with signing is Ivan Perisic, who is enjoying life with Inter currently. The Croatian winger has scored seven goals so far this term, and is being touted as a possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez, should contract negotiations continue to frustrate until the end of the season.
Another from Serie A whom we are supposedly looking at signing is Lorenzo Insigne, who is currently in talks over a contract extension. The 25 year-old is currently on a measly £30,000 per week deal, and Napoli are said to be offering him an extra £10,000, which is nowhere near enough to deter him from being tempted by supposed interest from other clubs, including Arsenal.
Anthony Maisonnial is the last of our supposed potential targets who we are bringing you today, and is a relative unknown to us here at JustArsenal. The 18 year-old has already earned the right to debut for St Etienne’s first-team side, but has since found himself returned to the bench. The young keeper has represented France at various youth levels and is currently the first-choice for their Under-19 team. We are said to be keeping tabs on his progress.
Can you see any of these stars wearing our famous Red next season?
