Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling rather heavy headed today after celebrating their thrilling victory over Manchester City yesterday long into the night but celebrations have sparked again, in anticipation of an exciting deal.
The Express state that Arsenal are readying a £15m bid to lure Southampton ace Victor Wanyama to North London in January, with Arsene Wenger keen to bolster his midfield ranks in the new year.
Arsenal are favourites to win the Premier League after their victory over the Citizens last night but the strongest challenge to their title push is injury problems, which have seen Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Wenger recently admitted that he’s likely to be very active in the January transfer window and fans are hoping of exciting deals, with the midfield being the key area to focus on when the window reopens.
Nigerian international Wanyama has excelled in the Premier League since arriving from Celtic in a £12.5m deal back in 2013 and the Arsenal punters are confident he can take the step-up to Champion League level.
Arsenal fans, is Wanyama the ideal midfield signing? Let us know in the comments below!
