Arsenal urged to target these three quality players next month

Arsenal has been in fine form in the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean they will not look to strengthen their squad next month if they can.

After banishing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the first team, the Gunners could easily have struggled.

But they have been in good shape and are scoring more goals than when he was in the team.

Next month offers the club the opportunity to sign more players and a new report has named some they might consider adding to their squad.

Metro Sport says the Gunners should pursue a deal for Dusan Vlahovic, Dejan Kulusevski and Denis Zakaria.

The latter would be a free agent in the summer, while the other two are fine young players in Europe.

Kulusevski might be the easiest to sign as he struggles for game time at Juventus, while Vlahovic has many suitors because of his performances for Fiorentina.

Zakaria would want to leave Borussia Monchengladbach on a free transfer in the summer, but they could be tempted to cash in on him next month.

Just Arsenal Opinion

These players are impressive individuals and they could add the much-needed quality to the Arsenal squad if they join.

However, the January transfer market is tricky and most top players never change clubs in it.

Sometimes, money can change that, but it remains unclear if Arsenal has the money to lure any of these players next month.

  1. Zakaria would be great considering we will be very light in midfield with Partey and Elneny off to the AFCON shortly. Could even be worse if Maitland-Niles leaves as it’s being rumored.
    But I would go for Winaljdum on a short term loan while we sort the squad out in the summer

    1. the fans would demand the club to spend some money and sign a player that has 4 month left on his contract rather than signing him for free in the summer

  2. Zakaria is bang average and injury-prone.

    Vlahovic probably out of our reach.

    Kulusevski has potential but we have few wingers already in great form. Total wild card this kid.

  3. A Cabral
    D Zakaria
    B. Kamara

    With these three AFFORDABLE additions AFC
    be a serious threat for the top 4 and a team
    NOBODY would want to play down the stretch.

    1. Arthur cabral to me is preferable to Vlahovic; very intelligent striker; cambative and fells really free to do wnat he likes with the ball from various angles

        1. Totally agree Tom, Arthur Cabral would fit in perfectly at Arsenal, he is exactly the physical striker we need.

  4. Rumor is the agent of Dusan Vlahovic is asking for $200,000 a week. This is over and above whatever the transfer fee is.
    If Auba goes that might cover the salary (and that is speculative), but the fee itself might be prohibitive.

    I believe Dejan Kulusevski is a winger, and I assume he would replace Pepe. But what do we do with Pepe? We would need to sell him for $30m to cover the outstanding transfer fee debt, but what if we cannot find a buyer?
    Maybe Arteta should start teaching Pepe Geordie!!

    Finally we have Denis Zakaria. He plays in the Bundesliga, with no experience in the Premier league.
    It has taken Partey at least a year to get to grips with the pace of the PL, but he is still not completely atuned to it.
    Zakaria would be expected to hit the ground running, he might not be able to do that, but we will need someone who can soon!!!.

    All in all this is, in my view, a very specious article.

  5. only Dusan is a worthy target on this list, considering our present and future needs…Zakaria is far too injury-prone, which should be a serious red flag considering our problematic history in that regards and Dejan is little more than a luxury purchase that unnecessarily complicates matters in a position that’s already muddled

    no matter what, we simply can’t get back into the business of investing in half-measures or band-aids and/or selling players without having suitable replacements under contract…if we pursue a loan contingency, we mustn’t do so if it requires unreasonable contractual assurances and it must include an option to buy at an already agreed upon price

  6. With large amount of spending in summer, Arsenal may want to look at affordable choices, especially in striker position.
    If Niles will go on loan, we must sign extension and a replacement.

    1. Even if Auba came hack, I do not want to see him starting ahead if any of the current starters. He can play a role from the bench though.
      The problem of benching him would be his salary.
