Arsenal Look to Land £24m Pair In January: Ideal Duo Crucial to Top Four Hopes

Winston Reid West Ham United

Wenger will also look to strengthen his central defensive options with a £4m bid for West Ham man Winston Reid with the New Zealand international seemingly set for an Upton Park exit.

The 26 year old has been in superb form this term but is yet to pen a new Hammers deal and with his current contract set to expire next summer there is a chance that the East London side will consider ‘cut-price’ offers for the defender in preference to see the player leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Per Mertesacker has been poor this term and the sale of Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona has left Wenger short of options and has led to both Nacho Monreal and Mathieu Debuchy at times having to fill in as make-shift central defenders with varying degrees of success.
