Arsenal set to use just the loan market to strengthen their squad this month

Arsenal will not be splashing the cash this month as most of their fans would want.

The Gunners have been in shaky form and there have been clear signs that Mikel Arteta will need to bring in reinforcements.

The defence is one area that Arsenal particularly needs to add some quality, however, the Gunners will have to make do with temporary moves if they are to make any signings.

Jerome Boateng and Dayot Upamecano have been linked with moves to the Emirates this month, but those moves can only happen if their respective teams would agree to loan moves, according to Goal.com.

The report claims that because of the significant money Arsenal spent last summer, they will only sign players on-loan while waiting for the summer to make another spree.

Calum Chambers has recently gotten injured and becomes the latest defender to be injured in Mikel Arteta’s squad.

The Spaniard has admitted that Chambers’ injury changes their transfer plans this month, but it remains unclear if Arsenal will change their plans and help their new manager land a top defender on a permanent transfer this month.

It has to be said that if Arteta is not allowed to strengthen the squad with proper acquisitions then it will leave a sour taste in the mouths of most fans.

Arsenal cannot hope to compete with the likes of Man City and Liverpool if the playing field remains uneven.

To launch any sort of credible title challenge expensive new players are required, that is a cold hard fact that the Arsenal board will have to grasp at some point.

    If we can’t get quality in then I prefer we don’t buy or loan anyone specially the ones we are linked with. Chambers was not integral part of the team or that much regular that we will really struggle in his absence. We should give marvaponus the chance n we have holding back from injury as well so I think we are pretty much covered.

      Why doesn’t mavrapanos ever play he’s been with us about 3 seasons now what’s wrong with him

    How did we suddenly go from battling against relegation to battling for the Premiership?? We need reinforcements in January in order to bring this campaign back on track and not get relegated. We should not be talking about challenging for the league for the next years to come. That’s completely delusional at this time.

      We never battling relegation

      never battled relegation. Media and fans just exagerrated a bit. People wanted Big Sam to coach us just to “save” us… If anybody bothered to look at the table, even stringing together two wins takes you very far up the table. Arsenal were at least capable of doing that.

        We were in relegation form long before we decided to sack Emery! We couldnt scrap a win to save ourselves! We kept going down the table, it was a matter of time we would be fighting to avoid relegation! Anyone could see this! Even after we sacked Emery our performances didn’t improve enough! Our first half display yesterday was the worst at home lately and that with Arteta! The second half display gives us hope, but don’t expect miracles from the current squad. We need to invest heavily in order to be able to compete again on high level and we also need to get loose from the underperforming players.

    Holding defended well but his distribution was poor but i can see a fine player in him

    And SOKRATIS is super aggressive,i love it.

    I hear Jerome Boateng will join us as part of our ‘help the aged’ campaign. Good to see us taking on over the hill players. Maybe we can pay him £350,000 a week too.

  6. Management will exactly do what they think and feel is good for the club. They know what we want, they read our comments.
    So lets wait and see how events unfold, i still don’t trust these guys. Why do they always leave it late to make important decision, why do they always sign players at the last minute.

    There are a good number of defenders around the globe who can’t refuse playing at the emirates once an opportunity came knocking on the door, clubs are always waiting and willing to off load(balance books)

    All we need is just to grab them by their nose, and bring them home to the promised land and you will be amazed to see them dancing, taking selfies and heaping praise on their way to the Emirates.

    Gunners we can do this,

  7. As the saying goes.

    IT’S DIFFICULT TO TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS

    If you feel Boateng will fair well in the EPL well bring him on even tomorrow or the other day.

    We need young players who want to write their names in the history books, who want to prove they can be part of the THREE LIONS and bring the TROPHY HOME.

    We don’t really need players who have passed their best and playing down their career, those who have achieved a lot and have remained with nothing to PROVE. Those with nothing to lose attitude.

    When was the last time we had players representing Gunners in the senior national team. Thats how bad we’ve become in tapping into the local talent.
    We need to go back to the drawing board and see where we messed up, something is not right at Arsenal.

    This is January transfer window is there any club willing to break the bank in order to get our player?

  8. Ade says:

    Arsenal should learn to sign on time, if Boateng is what our board decides then get him fast, enough of delay. Surely, chamber must be replaced quickly.
