Which players could Arsene Wenger target in January to replace the outbound German attacker?
According to rumours, including a Guardian story which quotes the German striker, Lukas Podolski is on his way out of the Emirates, and the question is just whether it will be in January or in the summer. Either way, injuries mean Arsenal are already short of players in Podolski’s position, and will need to replace him in January. Here are five realistic targets for Arsene Wenger to look at in the next window.
5) Pedro – Barcelona
The Spanish winger has been pushed down the pecking order by Luis Suarez’s arrival at Arsenal, and there have been reports in the last few weeks that he could hand in a transfer request to force a move. He’s technically good enough for Wenger, proven at the top level, and even better, he will likely be available relatively cheaply.
