Arsenal fans remain disappointed they are not toasting a Christmas drink inside the Football Transfer Tavern to their team being top of the Premier League on December 25th.
The 0-0 draw with Chelsea on Monday night was seen as a missed opportunity for Arsenal to really lay down a marker for the second half of the season.
A run of three Premier League games without a win has seen Wenger’s side lose their top spot to a Luis Suarez inspired Liverpool, something that is hugely frustrating for Gunners fans considering a victory over Everton just over three weeks ago would have opened up a seven point gap at the top.
Recent results have reinforced the idea that Arsene Wenger needs to strengthen his squad in January.
The late captures of Mesut Ozil and Mathieu Flamini in the summer, masked what was up until that point perhaps the most frustrating summer transfer window in Arsenal supporters’ memories.
Arsene Wenger set his sights on a host of strikers over the summer, only to miss out on every single one.
Olivier Giroud has been handed the responsibility of being the main striker and has recently faded after a superb start.
Striking reinforcements are considered a must in January, whilst there are also one or two other areas the Arsenal boss will hope to strengthen.
Here we have identified the five most likely Arsenal swoops during the January sales.
