Arsenal to make January move for a creative midfielder

Arsenal has been lacking goals in the Premier League in recent weeks.

The Gunners had won the FA Cup and Community Shield in August and started this season with a 3-0 win over Fulham.

But they are struggling for goals now, and one of the reasons for that is that they lack a creative midfielder.

Mikel Arteta decided to sideline Mesut Ozil for the rest of this season after the German failed to impress him when he first became the club’s manager.

The Gunners wanted to sign Houssem Aouar in the last transfer window, but couldn’t get the deal over the line.

They have also targeted, Dominik Szoboszlai this season with the Hungarian emerging as one of the best young midfielders in Europe.

But he is heading to RB Leipzig, this means Arsenal will have to look for another player in that position for their team (CBS Sports).

Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that the Gunners will indeed look to sign a new creative midfielder in the next transfer window.

He quoted a Tweet from an Arsenal fan account with Edu confirming the January plans.

His Tweet reads: “Edu just confirmed #AFC plans: “Yes, it’s quite clear that we need a player with creativity in the middle, we don’t have that in the squad right now.”

    I’d prefer Arsenal get the types of attackers we don’t have, since we’ve got too many players who can play as CAM. But what do I know compared to Edu and Arteta

      we have players who can play as CAM. we don’t have a top CAM. we need quality, and at the moment we don’t have it.

      1. gotanidea says:

        Ceballos played well as CAM at Arsenal. He showed his skills and vision again yesterday, unfortunately he was also busy with defending duty

        I bet Willian and Nelson would be good as CAM as well

    we need a carzola type of player if there is any left nowadays in football.

    Sell emerick,lacazette,luiz ,mustafi,sokratis,bellerin,xhaka,kolasinac……recall torreira,guendouzi,Ballard,coyle,smith,Jules….,.possible line up come next season…….. Leno,coyle,Gabriel,saliba,Tierney,Thomas, torreira,emile,pepe,martinelli,saka in a 4231 formation… Believe in youth arsenal…..for crying out loud,you have the best young stars in england…if not in the world

      I go with you .we have enough young players that can help us. luiz,lacazet,mustafi,kolasinac,xhaka ,sokratis and willian must go

    Exactly Cazorla type or strong and more energetic vision of Ozil.

  5. Wayne says:

    Ceballos is not good enough. Besides, he is always in a fight with teammates. Szoboszlai should definitely be the first choice as he provides assist and scores goals at the highest level of competition, Champions league. He costs only 23m pounds and his wages are affordable. A great long term investment. Arsenal should also buy Buendia, who has premier league experience, plays like Carzola and was ranked fourth in assists provided in last year’s premier league, although he was playing for Norwich city, which was relegated. Buendia is also young and costs only 23m pounds approx.

    This is all the kroankies fault for picking Emery and not backing wenger when he was there they don’t care so why should anyone else give a t..as if your boss is not interested then how do you expect to give your best..IV SAID TIME And TIME AGAIN as long as the Americans are in control we will be what spurs were crap mid table team sell the club to someone who wants to back the manager and players just like the russian of Chelsea mr Abromovich he puts his money were his mouth is .. stupid Americans they ruin everything they touched

  7. Angel Evans says:

    I think arsenal boss arteta should give young players a chance, see the way they are always hungry for ball,we dont just have to underestimate them,the only players to be included to the young players should be pepe,gabriel, bellerin, Tierney, elneny ,holding and Leno. Young players to be played should be saka,Niles, balogun, willock, Smith, Eddie,Nelson, azeez and gabriel martinelli, let’s try the young stars please, when you watch them on Europa you will understand what I am talking about
