Punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are sitting enjoying a pint and reflecting on the results seen thus far. As our landlord notes, it would take something special to pull them away from their conversations – but the question of who Arsenal will most certainly not be signing this January has done exactly that.
Gunners fans in the tavern roll their eyes at the mention of their summer transfer acquisitions – quite cheeky according to our landlord, given they managed to net Mesut Ozil! As we are reminded however, they also failed to land a host of other targets and before deadline day certainly looked like they would be struggling this season.
Whilst that has not turned out to be the case, there are still some whispers that the club will fall away from the title race this winter, and do not have as strong a squad as people think. There are certainly positions they still have issues in – and as we know full well from our daily discussions, there are still some rather audacious links with players the Gunners have no chance of signing.
With that in mind, we pulled our punters away from their match predictions to sit down and come up with a list of five transfers that are the least likely for Arsenal this winter.
Will Wenger miss out on these targets? Let us know your thoughts below.
