Arsenal transfer news

Arsenal wants to return to the Champions League, therefore they’ll have to make sure they get the January transfer window right.

However, the Gunners’ most recent transaction has raised doubts about whether they are making the correct option.

Arsenal wants to return to the Champions League, so they’ll need to make sure they get everything right in the January transfer window. However, the Gunners’ most recent transaction has raised doubts about whether they are making the correct option.

Arsenal’s chance to clinch a place in the Champions League qualifying slots this season has come as a pleasant surprise. Manchester United was expected to join Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea as championship challengers and the established top four following their signings.

Chelsea and Liverpool, on the other hand, have started to slip, allowing the Gunners to think even higher than fourth. Despite this, the reality is that Arsenal has a lot of games coming up, and their squad has just been thinned significantly.

Both Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny have left the midfield to compete in the Afcon. As a result, the only senior orthodox choices are Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Granit Xhaka, and Sambi Lokonga.

Maitland-Niles, on the other hand, is set to depart the club on loan to Roma, with the Italian club agreeing to a straight loan.

This has been a long-awaited move for such midfielder, who has been disappointed by a lack of regular game time and Arsenal’s absence from European contention.

He will join Tammy Abraham, another England international who departed Chelsea after slipping down the pecking order in west London.

Arsenal’s current difficulty is that only Lokonga and Xhaka remain as senior midfielders. In his sole appearance of the season, Charlie Patino netted in a 5-1 victory over Sunderland.

Mikel Arteta, on the other hand, has two League Cup games with Liverpool and an important visit to Tottenham Hotspur later this month.

With a tight competition for the top four looming, having so few options in the middle of the season, and the risk of both injury and Covid’s presence every week, failing to sign a replacement would be considered as naïve.

This would be similar to when Sead Kolasinac was permitted to join Schalke on loan in January 2021. As a result, the club’s sole senior natural alternative is Kierney.

When the Scot was injured, Xhaka stepped in, but was exposed by Samuel Chukwueze over the first leg, leading to a Europa League semi-final loss to Unai Emery’s Villarreal.

Making the same mistake two winters in a row when Champions League football is on hand would be a terrible blow to Edu and Arteta’s recruitment authority after such a successful summer transfer window recovering supporter faith lost during their early custodianship with some doubtful acquisitions.

There are still choices, with connections to Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Denis Zakaria.

Even a six-month loan might be preferable than no signing. Offering a deal to Jack Wilshere, who has been practicing with the side, will be preferable to bringing in no one.

There can be no blunders, and if no alternative signings are made before the deadline, there will be severe consequences.
