Arsenal transfer news
The Gunners are short of quality and depth in both of these areas, with injuries hitting them hard in midfield this season as the likes of Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere have both faced long spells out.
In defence, Thomas Vermaelen’s departure to Barcelona has left them short of backup options as the likes of Per Mertesacker have not always been on top form this season, while Laurent Koscielny has also struggled with injury, leaving untested youngster Calum Chambers to play an unexpected amount of games in that position, while Nacho Monreal has also filled in out of position in the centre.
Still, Arsene Wenger has identified seven players he could look to bring to the club this January, with only two of these targets likely to be brought in…
1) Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton)
A player in fine form this season, it is no surprise to see that Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is one of Arsenal’s top targets to solve their troublesome defensive midfield position.
