If reports are to be believed, Arsenal are set to be one of the Premier League’s busiest clubs in January.
Arsene Wenger still has money to spend, after spending the summer with his cards kept firmly to his chest until producing the incredible capture of Mesut Ozil on deadline day.
The German has had an instant impact, and the time spent pining after the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez has gone, with the Gunners currently top of the Premier League, and well poised to escape their Champions League ‘group of death’.
Whilst Wenger remains perhaps another top class striker short, there are plenty who believe his side are perfectly set to end their trophy drought – possibly with the biggest of the lot.
The rumour mill has been rife with suggestions of big name signings Wenger is set to pursue, the likes of Alexandre Pato, Javier Pastore, Lars Bender and Karim Benzema have all been strongly linked.
With Wenger set to strengthen, you can expect there to be some outgoings.
The summer was spent disposing with the deadwood, as the likes of Gervinho, Denilson and Andrey Arshavin were all sent packing.
Whereas January may be similar, it could also be about allowing some of the clubs talented young players to gain some crucial experience.
Here we look at five players who could be desperate for a January loan move.
