Arsenal are flying at the moment. But with the overdose of injuries and the number of key games coming up, they need to be clever this window. Fans expect some arrivals given they only signed Petr Cech in the summer (what a signing that one has been though!). FC Basel’s Mohamed Elneny might well be confirmed by the time this article is published.
He is a powerful holding midfielder, a position the Gunners’ fans have long craved for. But Arsene Wenger might also look at sprucing up his forward line, given Welbeck’s long-term injury. They should consider their defensive options as well.
What they want: Lars Bender, Karim Benzema, Victor Wanyama, Ezequiel Lavezzi
What they might get: Mohamed Elneny
Who might leave: Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina
