Tomorrow night right here in the Football Transfer Tavern, we’re expecting bumper crowds for the huge midweek match-up between both Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield.
With our big screen projector being set up as we speak, the Gunners will be heading to Merseyside full of confidence after winning three straight games on the bounce after their sorry Boxing Day humbling away at Southampton.
Many Gooners are claiming that if they can get through the next two tough away games unscathed – Liverpool and Stoke City – then their title bid can be considered good enough as genuine, if it wasn’t already; it just depends on whether you’re an optimistic or pessimistic Arsenal fan I suppose!
The wait continues for the first January transfer window signing at Emirates Stadium with Mohamed Elneny’s impending switch from FC Basel still being held up by red tape to Arsenal fans’ continued frustration.
That said, the expectation is that the Egyptian international will be linking up sometime soon and it’s just a shame that Arsene Wenger couldn’t use the Sunderland game in the FA Cup to bed him in.
Talking of new arrivals, there could also be two more in North London if these reports are to be believed with the Gunners reportedly set to beat Bayern Munich to the capture of exciting Nigerian youth international duo Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze.
Although Arsenal fans want players for the here and now, the teenagers are amongst the hottest prospects in the world for their age group and would cost around a combined £3 million.
So say that duo are to arrive; who else could be joining them in North London this month? Lets look at five guys who might be set to follow.
