These are proving to be exciting times for Arsenal fans.
As we head into the international break, recently crowned Manager of the Month Arsene Wenger has his side sitting top of the Premier League table, and top of the Champions League ‘group of death’.
There is genuine optimism surrounding the Emirates Stadium at present, after a summer of discontent and frustration in the transfer market.
The deadline day signing of Mesut Ozil appears to have been a real game changer for the Gunners, who are now perhaps finally considered genuine title contenders.
And the exciting news for Gunners fans is that they have further cash to splash in January.
All the talk during the summer was of Wenger having a £70 million war chest to spend – of which he only splashed £42.5 million, albeit on one player.
That gives the Gunners boss an excess £30 million or so to spend in January, and he has no doubt been busy identifying targets to take his side go on to reach that next level.
Whilst a new striker and a centre back remain the priority, we have identified five potential ways Wenger could splash the cash this January.
