Arsenal transfer news: Arsene Wenger looking to fill empty spaces in side
Arsene Wenger is planning to amp up Arsenal FC transfer news as he looks to bring in atleast two new players during the January transfer window. With Marouane Chamakh joining West Ham and Johan Djourou leaving to Hannover on loan the Gunners might be looking to fill the voids in their line-up and the wins column as well.
The 2-2 draw against Swansea has led the Gunners boss to think more on his feet as he tries to plot a resurgence. Arsenal FC fans might be hoping to see some new faces at the Emirates stadium for the revival of the fortunes of the club. The club has been linked to Barcelona FC striker, David Villa, who might be a good catch, if he starts performing.
Talking about his intentions for the January transfer window, “If we find one or two in the transfer market, then why not? Let’s first keep the players we have and maybe add one or two because we’ve lost Chamakh and Djourou now.” With Arsene Wenger reported to ponder over the terms of the contract of Theo Walcott, Arsenal FC might need more than two transfers if they want to rise above their current status.
Commenting about the delay Wenger said, “I don’t know how it works at other clubs. But it’s not only me, it’s in cooperation with the board. When I want to go far in setting a higher salary for a player, I ask the authorisation of the board.” Arsenal FC takes on Manchester City, West Ham and Liverpool at home and an away game with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal FC has been linked with a move for Montpellier defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Wigan midfielder James McCarthy among many other prospects.
