Doesn’t it seem like an eternity since the North London Derby now with our Arsenal supporters itching to get back to the bread and butter of the Premier League.
Sitting joint top of the table right now alongside Manchester City points wise, Gunners fans can be very pleased with their efforts this campaign so far but with their annual injury crisis striking yet again in recent weeks, many are expecting this to derail Arsene Wenger’s team over the coming months.
It’s a frustrating tale for Gooners who were all preaching that Wenger signed some more outfield talent to compensate for probable losses during the season but the stubborn Frenchman only plumped for Petr Cech as we know.
While everything is still relatively rosy in the league at the moment, injuries to the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Francis Coquelin or Olivier Giroud could really harm Arsenal’s prospects.
Of course, the January transfer window isn’t too far away and additions could be made then to bolster the ranks but the New Year isn’t always the best time to buy with inflated fees and we all know what Wenger thinks of them!
Nevertheless, one man who has been strongly linked with an Emirates Stadium switch of late is Napoli’s naturalised Italian defensive midfielder Jorginho who has been impressing in Serie A this season.
Rated at around £22 million, The Mirror claim the player has already been scouted by the Gunners, fuelling speculation that he could move to North London as early as January.
If this was to prove the case, who else may be joining him as a Gooner in the winter window?
