The arrival of Mkhitaryan has boosted the Arsenal fans desire to see more talent arrive at the club. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang appears to be firmly at the top of their wish list, however, the fans are also hoping that Wenger will add defensive quality to his squad by the end of January.

According to The Mirror, Arsenal are interested in Abdou Diallo who currently plays his trade at centre-back for FSV Mainz and captains the French U21 side.

Diallo (valued at £7.2 million by Transfermarkt) arrived in the Bundesliga during the summer of 2017, so it’s more than likely that Mainz will be highly reluctant to sell their 21-year-old talent who has been a key player for the relegation-threatened side this season.

However, that fact has certainly not deterred the Arsenal supporters from calling for Wenger to secure his signature this month.
