In Capital One Cup action against Sheffield Wednesday in just 45 minutes’ time, Arsenal supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are just getting their rounds in ahead of the televised fixture at Hillsborough.
In what will probably be a much changed Gunners starting eleven with Arsene Wenger’s primary focus on the Premier League and a Champions League salvage job right now, Arsenal will still be expected to win against a side they haven’t played against for an incredibly long time.
Carlos Carvalhal’s Owls will be hoping they can cause the upset of the round and everybody connected with the Gunners will be hoping that their second string can get the job done in normal time.
Our Gunners contingent have been in incredibly buoyant spirits of late, having stepped their season up a notch in recent weeks, firstly emphatically beating Manchester United 3-0 ahead of a notable 2-0 triumph over Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Add Premier League victories over both Watford and Everton into the mix and Arsene Wenger’s men are joint top of the table right now alongside Manchester City and if they’re still there of thereabouts in January, our Arsenal fans will be urging Wenger to spend to finally get the Gunners over the line.
One man who the Daily Star claimed may be back on Arsenal’s radar earlier was Sevilla’s Grzegorz Krychowiak who could be a perfect foil for Francis Coquelin in defensive midfield.
That said, later on today, fresher reports from The Express claimed Sevilla are looking to tie the Polish international down to a new deal very soon so if the Gunners do have solid designs on signing him, they’ll have to move quick.
Nevertheless, we’ve devised a list of five players who may well end up following Krychowiak to Emirates Stadium in the January transfer window.
