How Gunners could line up with rumoured January targets.Arsenal have today been linked with moves for Schalke’s exciting youngster Julian Draxler and Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani ahead of the January transfer window.
There’s no doubt the Gunners look in need of further strengthening after a poor start to the season, with attacking duo Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck in the firing line as the team look stale going forward.
Although Welbeck will likely remain at the club as a squad player, the £16m man doesn’t look like convincing as first choice for the club, while Ozil has attracted interest from Bayern Munich after a series of below-par displays.
With a busy January possibly in store, here’s a look at how Arsenal could line up for the second half of the season, with three exciting new signings.
Goalkeeper and defence:
Although Arsenal could certainly do with more depth in defence, the club are not currently looking likely to sign anyone in that area, leaving the Gunners’ back four looking the same as it does at the moment, with Mathieu Debuchy, Kieran Gibbs, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny lining up in front of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.
