Hints that Arsenal will do more transfer deals in January


Against what has been experienced in a long while, the English Premier League club Arsenal engaged in a lot of transfer activities in the just concluded summer window and there are hints that it will continue in the January winter window.

The North London outfit brought in Willian from Chelsea while Gabriel Magalhaes joined from French Ligue 1 side Lille. The Transfer window did not end until the big one was done on the transfer deadline day with the signature of Ghanaian international Thomas Partey from the Spanish La Liga outfit.

Football-London claims that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is eager to do more deals as soon as the winter transfer window is opened as he seeks to improve his squad to be Premier League challengers.

The report adds that the Spanish boss wants to add at least two more players in the coming winter window, hoping to sign a back-up centre-forward and a flexible forward.

Arsenal chief Edu has already hinted that the essence of the signings is to add quality and physicality to the squad so as to meet the plan for the future.

However, the Arsenal owners seem to have big faith in the new project by manager Mikel Arteta as supported by Edu and they are willing to give him all needed support in achieving this.
