The January transfer window usually isn’t the most exciting time to be an Arsenal supporter, but with a top four finish slipping away and the clock ticking on several current Gunners’ contracts, a flurry of transfer activity could be on the horizon.
While the future of Riyad Mahrez seems to flip flop every hour between a move to Liverpool, Arsenal, or staying at Leicester, here are five much more promising Arsenal transfer targets for the January window.
The possibility of Sevilla’s Steven N’Zonzi moving to north London within the next few weeks is probably as close to a ‘sure thing’ as Arsenal are going to get.
Express Sport reports that the 6’5″ defensive midfielder is Wenger’s number one target and his addition would surely be welcome to a side that’s shipped the most goals in the top six.
N’Zonzi has made over 70 appearances for Sevilla since 2015 and prior to that he was a nailed on starter at Stoke City for three seasons.
To acquire him, Arsenal will have to get to him before Everton’s Sam Allardyce, who managed N’Zonzi at Blackburn from 2009-12.
