Wenger: Arsenal Will Be BUSY In The January Transfer Market! by AT
It is no secret that Arsenal have wrapped up a deal for the FC Basel midfielder Mohammed Elneny, but the Egyptian international might not be the only player that the Gunners sign next month. If the comments made by Arsene Wenger are anything to go by, the North London side will be looking at bringing in further reinforcements as they look to consolidate their place at the top of the Premier League table.
As quoted by the Daily Mirror, the Arsenal boss said: ” I’ll be busy, that’s for sure. I’m already busy and I said already one month ago we are a bit short to deal with all the competitions we face, especially in midfield. We will be busy, yes.”
First of all, it is very surprising that the Frenchman admitted that there is a shortage and that reinforcements have to be brought in. In my opinion, I think this is a clear indication that Wenger realises this season is his best opportunity to win the title and it seems like the boss is not taking any chances with his squad depth heading into the business end of the season.
It will also be interesting to see which areas of the pitch Wenger has prioritised to bring in reinforcements. While central midfield is an obvious area of concern, we may also need a new right-back, with Wenger confirming that there is a chance Debuchy may leave. Who knows, perhaps he is looking at attacking reinforcements as well.
Anyway, the most important thing here is that Arsene Wenger has realised that this is his best opportunity to win the title and is ready to invest in January, despite not being a fan of the mid-season market. With Arsenal being linked with moves for players like Marcelo Brozovic, Aleksandr Kokorin and Javier Hernandez, it remains to be seen who Le Prof will decide to bring to the Emirates.
