Five January signings Arsenal can make to improve their squad

The January transfer window offers clubs an opportunity to add new players to their squad and prepare them better for the second half of the season.

Arsenal will need strengthening to continue staying at the top of the EPL table, and these players will help their chances if any of them are signed,

Mykhailo Mudryk

Mudryk has shown he is an exciting yet productive talent who can make things happen regardless of the opponent.

He will be a great backup to Bukayo Saka or Gabriel Martinelli.

Sofyan Amrabat

Amrabat was the star man for the Morocco team at the World Cup, and he is probably a better option than the other midfielders Arsenal has targeted.

He will cover for Granit Xhaka or Thomas Partey very well.

Cody Gakpo

Gakpo’s stock rose because of his stunning World Cup performances, and he might leave PSV in January.

If Arsenal needs more goals and assists, he is the player they must add to their squad in January.

Youri Tielemans

Tielemans is a long-term target of the Gunners, and the Belgian will certainly improve their midfield. In addition, his Premier League experience will help him settle faster than most new signings.

Joao Felix

Felix is unbelievably only 23 and has learnt how to destroy defences under Diego Simeone. He will add more goals for Arsenal if they sign him in the January transfer window.

  1. Why would world cup stars want to join to cover for our players? Wouldn’t they expect to start most games, at least at the beginning? I’d find it a bit deflating personally.

  2. I would like to see an experienced striker come in on loan till the seasons end ,just for cover until jesus is back .
    January signings can be abit hit or miss situation which can cost a fortune if clubs know you’re desperate .
    That said if we are serious About adding a player that can improve the squad then I’m all for it .

    1. What level of experience striker do you expect we can get just on a loan? I think we will need to sign someone, not loan one, as no striker of any real talent will be available on loan IMO.

      I’m not aginst loaning in principle but for practical reasons it won’t be much use. Unless we sign one properly.

      1. Man Utd have done it for years getting high quality strikers on short term deals ,if you pay the money they come ,better spending 10 million in wages on a experienced striker for 6-12 months than spending 80 million on a panic buy .

      2. If you were to have a good look around the world,at the biggest clubs like RM, PSG..we would definitely find at least one CF,DM both experienced and good enough to do a job for us,until the end of the season.players who are unhappy sitting on the bench and looking to start again their careers and remind people what they can do, given the opportunity.even young players (early 20’s) looking for exposure, playing time.the likes of PSG,RM,Barca…are full of them.

  3. Arsenal cannot afford not sign at least two players preferably in attack. I would like to see Edu and Mikel sign Mudryk and Felix not only for pushing for league but to prepare for next season’s Champions League as well
    COYG!!! Let’s go for it!!

  4. – Mudryk seems to be a pacey hardworking LW who’s productive in the field, but we’ve got Martinelli, Smith-Rowe, Nelson, Nketiah, Balogun, Flores, Oulad M’Hand and Taylor-Hart for that role

    – Amrabat is a very good DM, but I doubt he’d like to play second fiddle to Partey. Unless Partey will start in Xhaka’s position to let Amrabat play CDM

    – Gakpo’s playing style is too similar to Aubameyang’s, in my opinion. His work rate seems much higher than our ex-captain and he’s a very good finisher, but Jesus and Martinelli are way trickier than him

    – Tielemans is an experienced EPL midfielder with excellent close control skills, so he’d likely be perfect for Arteta’s tactics. Unfortunately, Smith-Rowe’s playing time in central midfield would likely get more limited if Tielemans comes

    – Felix is a highly technical attacker with very good work rate, pace, touches and close control skills, but he doesn’t seem to be as good as Martinelli at dribbling and Jesus at hold-up play. His lack of specialties made him unable to penetrate Morocco’s defense, in a match which En-Nesyri was the game changer with his aerial ability

  5. We are very light upfront and need to sign two attackers preferably.

    Mudryk-heavily linked to us and would bring explosive pace and trickery down the flanks.
    Felix-can play on either wing, behind the striker and as a false 9 if needed.
    Ferran Torres-similar to felix
    Ben Brerenton Diaz- maybe we should take a punt on him, doing quite well in the championship, centre forward who can play wide too, contract expires in June therefore Blackburn are at risk of losing him for nothing so we can get him for a cut price deal. Offer them £10M-£15M.

    In regards to the holding midfield role one of Amrabat Bennacer Danilo or Bamba would be greatly welcomed.

  6. Why not go for proven strikers that will make Jesus even reck with fear that he may lose his position if he doesn’t get back to his best quickly after recovering.. Arteta always go for second fiddle player’s.Why not go for players who offer something different & will hit the ground running.I don’t mind if Amrabat comes & benches xhaka/partey.What matters is the competition & not making numbers.Instead of going for rejects/players who have lost form hoping to use arsenal as a career resurgence why not go for Proven EPL players ready to hit the ground runnin.We got Ivan tonney or Wilfred ZAha or even Torsard..In my opinion I rather go for a taller, physical,& better clinical striker like an Ivan tonney/vlahovic & exchange nkieteah for ZAha and get Telemens/amrabat/Mac Alistair/caciedo and let’s leave mudriyk till his club is ready to play ball..This is Artetas season and if he fails to get the job done now,I bet u,when the other teams get their teams back in shape he will definitely regret it all his life ..thanks

    1. Nice comment.
      I hope the conclusion can be sent to Mr Arteta.
      That has been my thought all this while.

      If Arsenal fail to win something this season, other teams won’t allow us next season.we need to capitalise on the 5 points gap.

    2. Yeah. Just like he missed in January allowing Bruno get captured by Newcastle. I guess this winter is also a very good time to get his house fixed and solid.

  7. Arsenal should go for Demurai Gray of Everton or Wilfred Zaha of C.Palace.. Pace, trickery and Explosiveness is needed in the Attack of a Title challenging team.
    Let’s not Waste this great chance..😒

    1. Mudryk seems the most likely signing with Felix on a one year loan deal. Gakpo is off to Man U and Tielemans is a bit meh, but a decent squad addition.

  8. Why do we need two wingers that have no PL experience ?? Murdryk and Felix look great in their leagues but all you will do is piss off Saka and Martenelli and also Smith-Rowe, Nelson and others will end up way down the line in the pecking order.
    What we do need urgently is a pure striker who can put the ball in the net 80% of the opportunities he gets. Toney and Mitrovic shd be considered. Both have proven PL experience and score plenty goals. Pep realised early on that Jesus does not score enough goals as a striker despite his great all-round ability !!!

  9. The first priority is mudryk ,so what we expecting is him to came first and the following player will came his who will help eddi for strikeing thanks have a good Christmas all arsenal fun
