Arsenal fans will be keeping a very close eye on the injury situation at the club in the run up to the festive period, because that and the form of the individual Arsenal players and the team as a whole will probably determine whether January will see any transfer action from Arsene Wenger.
Assuming that the currently injured Gunners like Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck do not suffer any setbacks on their paths to recovery and that we keep putting in the good performances and getting the right results in the Premier League, then I cannot see the boss being any more keen to add to his squad.
However, there may be other concerns for Arsenal fans in the winter transfer window, namely the danger of some of Europe´s biggest and richest clubs coming sniffing for our stars. One name that is likely to be near the top of the wish list of many a club manager is Alexis Sanchez, whose fantastic form this season has just been rewarded with the PFA Fans Player of the Month award for October.
Some recent Arsenal transfer rumours have suggested that the Chilean is wanted by La Liga giants Real Madrid but according to a Metro report, we have nothing to worry about as Alexis is actually looking to sign a contract extension and is determined to stay at Arsenal and win the EPL title.
If this is true then Wenger should work fast and get him signed up to a new deal as soon as possible and perhaps a big fat release clause would be a good idea as well?
