Seven transfer targets for Arsenal and United this January.
Arsenal and Manchester United may be about to do battle in the Premier League this weekend, but the two old rivals could also be in for some battles in the transfer market this January.
Both teams are seemingly in need of players in similar positions, with Arsene Wenger and Louis van Gaal short of quality options in defence and defensive midfield in particular.
This could make for an intriguing January as the two Premier League giants tussle to get their hands on the world’s best talent, with these seven players thought to be in these sides’ plans this winter:
1) Sami Khedira (Real Madrid)
One of the world’s top defensive midfield players, Real Madrid contract rebel Sami Khedira is attracting plenty of attention at the moment as he could be available on a free transfer next summer. The German international could be a top signing for any big club, but Arsenal and United are unsurprisingly keen to land him as they may not find a more ideal player available for nothing. Still, some recent reports claim Bayern Munich are leading the race for his signature.
