The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see some new signings in the January transfer window.

And they will be encouraged by recent transfer developments as Arsene Wenger ups the ante in his pursuit of a Bundesliga midfielder.

Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka is one of the top names on Arsenal’s wishlist, according to The Mirror.

The 22-year-old has entered the final year of his contract and Schalke might be forced into selling their prize asset so that they do not lose him for free next summer.

This has alerted Arsenal, who could swoop with a cut-price move for Goretzka.

The ten cap Germany midfielder is said to be keen on a switch to Barcelona or Bayern Munich but Arsenal are hoping to compete with these two European giants in the transfer market.

Arsenal have sent scouts to watch Leon Goretzka on a number of occasions this season as they seek reinforcements in the middle of the park.

With Barcelona still under a transfer embargo, Arsenal are hoping to take advantage and steal a march in the race to snap up the highly rated youngster, although many other top European sides are chasing the energetic midfielder.
