The problem for Arsene Wenger during this January transfer window is likely to be the same one that Arsenal fans have been hearing for years, lack of availability. The Frenchman has said over and over again that he will not sign any players for the sake of signing someone, although the current injury situation in the Arsenal midfield may well have been behind the imminent transfer of Mohamed Elneny from Basel.
I know that we are sick of hearing it but Wenger does have a valid point, especially when it comes to finding a striker. The prof will only sign a new forward if it improves the quality of his squad options With Alexis Sanchez on the verge of a comeback and with Olivier Giroud in good form and looking set to increase his goal stats for the fourth season in a row since becoming a Gunner, an upgrade will be very hard to find.
There are some big name forwards out there but they are hard to come by, especially halfway through a season. One that has constantly been linked with Arsenal is the PSG and Uruguay star Edinson Cavani and the good news, according to a Metro report, is that he could be available after issuing his current club with an ultimatum about his role in the side compared to team mate Zlatan Ibrahimovich.
The bad news is that we would have to wait until the summer to sign him. Can Arsenal really afford to wait?
