Arteta convinces me that Arsenal will improve the squad in January

As a man that reads every single Arsenal transfer rumour every single day, and have been doing for the last ten years since before I even started JustArsenal, I think I have a good idea of when to seperate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to the likelihood of a rumour becoming fact or not.

So I have surmised that during this coming January transfer window, Arteta and Edu will definitely be bringing in at least two new arrivals, and listening to what Arteta said yesterday about the quality of Arsenal’s squad depth, has only reinforced my belief in my opinion.

He told Arsenal.com: “I feel like my squad is really good. Unfortunately, we’ve had injuries and we will try to see what we can do to be strong. We have players, we have a lot of accompanying players. [The question is] do we have the players that can give us the performances and the consistency that we need to maintain and improve from where we are?”

The obvious answer to his question is “No” at the moment, and I consider that, after his meeting with Josh Kroenke this week, that he has got the green light to do what he has to do in January.

So, I am going to stick my neck out here, and predict that we will see at least two new brilliant arrivals, and I’m speaking about Mudryk and Danilo, and as usual I think there will also be a little known gem as an extra surprise for us all.

What do you make of Arteta’s comments?

  1. Well, it is not surprise that Ad PAT knows about every single rumour concerning Arsenal. Most, if not all, find their way onto his site!
    I ALSO BELIEVE THAT OUR CLUB WILL BRING IN AT LEAST TWO SIGNIFICANT PLAYERS IN JANUARY. Unless we do so, we can write off winning the title for sure.

    How much will actually be spent upfront though, is open to debate. AND I LEAN TOIWARDS NOT A GREAT DEAL BEING LAID OUT UPFRONT. Not enough for our liking, nor for MA’S either, IMO!

  2. I heard Arsenal still owe some clubs around 117 M and they must think about FFP after spending a lot of money in the summer, so I guess they’d just call Balogun

    Could we recall Pepe to rotate with Nketiah and Saka? We haven’t tried him out in the CF position

    If Arsenal plan to sign an affordable CF with expiring contract, they’d better do it quickly because Moukoko seems to be in talks with BVB/ Barcelona and Kudus is rumored to be targeted by Dortmund/ Tottenham

  3. Only be convinced when the deals are sealed. Of course Arteta will want to strengthen. Five points clear. Not that they will but his team can afford to lose one and draw one against City and still be on top meaning that Arsenal can control their own destiny. It would be an extreme failure of nerve or ambition to not go all out for the title.

    1. Would like to think they have learnt from last year. If poss we will do. Don’t think FFP will hinder us. Bring em in,or bring em on.

  4. I have no doubt new signing will be coming in and the two names mentioned in the article seems the main targets.

    The gaffer knows new signing especially of the marquee types will inspire confidence and may just be what the doctor order to take us over the line.

    So yes the new signings will depend on the size of the war chest

  5. if new players come in means there will be players going out either in the winter or summer window

    no players want to sit on the bench on a regular basis

  6. Thanks for clearing up the rumours, because with these(rumours) Arsenal is after every player out there 😄🤣

  7. Arteta and Edu are visionaries when it comes to upgrading AFC and getting the anticipated results
    .Our goal for 22/23 Season is clear in every Arsenal Supporters Mind.
    Edu and Arteta only need to cut the Ts and dot the Is.
    Martinelli can play a false 9 with Nketiah while Gabriel Jesus receives his knee Surgery vtreatment and rehabilitation if we must be in the Championship as League leaders or Top 4 the least
    .

  8. Are not Baloguh’s and Pepe’s loan out deals premised on a full Season long loan out deals? Is recalling any of them ar anytime during the season by their parent club side – Arsenbal inserted into the deals which saw the duo Arsenal players loaned out? I doubt if such recall insertion was made by Arsenal when they loan the pair out to French club sides last summer. If so, therefore recalling the duo Gunners this winter is a none starter.
    From every indication currently on the table at Arsenal as it’s concerned them in the area of to further improved on the present quality of their 1st team squad. So as to sustain their current leadership of the Epl. And make it long last to season’s end to subsequently win the title.
    Mostly certainly Arsenal will further improved on their last 4 summer signings with 2 – 3 new top quality additions to their ranks to help them to active their aims and objectives of winning the treble this season which are still on very much on the cards when the season restart.
    In this quest, through I don’t know the new players who Arsenal will sign in the soon to open Jan transfer window. But the thinking is the club may sign 2 – 3 out of the 4 of: CR7 though he’s now 37 but he still looks to have some good number goals left on his boots to score them. Despite that he doesn’t fit-in into Arteta’s age profile recruitment for Arsenal. He could still score those goals for Arsenal this season which are still left in his boots to be scored in their good numbers.
    And it’s looking likely Arsenal will sign the 2 of Danilo, Douglas Luiz and Mykhayio Mudryk next ,month to bolster their team. So, we Que waiting to see what will happen when next Jan window is opened.

  10. Ivan Toney is the only player that can rhyme with Arteta system of play.And can replace Gabriel Jesus at now or else Arsenal will forget top League.

  11. helo mr arteta
    please bring in the replacements for party, jesus and saka. those guys need not play every game. they get fatigue. and especially after picking injuries.
    you over play them.

  12. Fair play in sticking your neck out. It’s difficult to predict the arrival of a certain player, so, rarely will anyone attempt it. I too would guess that two more arrivals would be ideal in our upper management’s eyes. But for the exact type of forward player __I’m at a loss since Jesus’s injury and in the fact, it’s a Jan window. In the summer we tried definitively to sign a right-wide player. Then, Mudryk with strong links to AFC is himself a left-sided player for his club. And now, there is a need for more quality centrally speaking. So am not even sure about the position of the targeted forward, and I’m certainly not set on who he might be…
