Arsenal are close to making their first signing of the window, but is he the player they really need?
Arsenal look to be on the verge of completing their first signing of the January transfer window, with 17-year-old Krystian Bielik set to join the club for a reported £2.4m, reports the Guardian.
There are fears among fans that this will be Arsenal’s only midfield signing this winter, and that Arsene Wenger will be looking to youth once again.
Here are six more experienced players Arsenal should be targeting:
6) William Carvalho – Sporting Lisbon
A player that has been linked to Arsenal for a long time now, the powerful midfielder would certainly add some steel to the midfield.
At 22-years old he already has a fair amount of first team experience, and could prove to be a long term solution to the Gunners’ midfield problems.
