Gunners preparing to raid Italy in January transfer window.
Arsenal could be doing much of their January transfer spending in Serie A this year, with various recent reports linking the Gunners with some Italian-based players to improve their squad.
Arsene Wenger’s side are not at their best so far this season, with summer signings Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck and Calum Chambers not quite doing enough to lift the club to mount a serious title challenge, with a fight to finish in the top four looking likely again for the team this season.
With additions needed in a number of different positions, Arsenal seemingly have their eye on strikers, midfielders and defenders in a bid to enhance each key area of their squad this winter, with these five players emerging as Wenger’s top priority targets in the coming months:
1) Mattia Destro (AS Roma)
An impressively prolific front-man, AS Roma star Mattia Destro is attracting plenty of interest and seems likely to be the subject of a bid from Arsenal this January, though Chelsea are also interested.. With Olivier Giroud injured, the Gunners could do with an alternative to Danny Welbeck upfront, with the former Manchester United man only scoring twice in the Premier League so far this season.
