Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have stopped their game of darts to gather around the bar and discuss sensational reports, which state who incredible signings will be made this month.
With Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini’s contracts expiring in North London this summer, the Gunners ere eying midfield successors to the trio. Their quest to land midfielders has been intensified by injuries to Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla- meaning the Gunners are eying imminent additions.
Mohamed Elneny will arrive this week as the first midfield addition but it seems Arsene Wenger is not done there, as reports state he will step-up his interest in the two long-term targets.
Xhaka, a creative midfielder, may be regarded as the long-term successor to Santi Cazorla whilst Rabiot would bolster the Gunners defensive-midfield ranks, with Francis Coquelin remaining unavailable until mid-February.
Our landlord believes this pair would be a sensational coup for Arsenal, guaranteeing them the Premier League title and increasing their chances of seeing-off Barcelona in the Champions League.
Arsenal fans, do you really need to sign three midfielders this month? Let us know in the comments below!
