Arteta has witnessed the worst start ever in a Premier League season by losing three games consecutively this year at the Emirates.

The Gunners have fallen as low as 15th due to these games. They have scored their lowest points total at this stage of a season, and they are worryingly near to the bottom of the table.

Arsenal did a great job of recruitment the last summer, but still, they have struggled. It is no wonder that Arsenal would want to sign in some new talent over the course of the January Transfer window, as the previous additions to the team may not solve all the problems of Arsenal.

Here are the players whom Arsenal should sign in the January transfer window 2021 according to our opinion.

Houssem Aouar

The Gunners had tried to grab this 22-year-old French-Algerian midfielder, but the deal could not be sealed as Aouar asked more money that Arteta would have agreed. After the arrival of Thomas and Gabriel in the Gunners, Aouar must be on the priority for Arteta. We are not sure whether Arteta would stretch the deal asked by Houssem Aouar, but in order to bring strength in the next season, this investment seems fair. Arsenal may sell some of their other players to generate funds. It remains to be seen in the January window but it would not be a surprise if Arteta takes a flight to France.

Dominik Szoboszlai

If somehow the Aouar deal may not get done, Arteta should look for another creative midfielder. Szoboszlai should be on their list as an alternative to Aouar. Not only Arsenal, but several other clubs may also try to grab this player when the transfer window opens in January. When Arteta is looking for another player like Aouar on a tight budget, this Red Bull Salzburg player can be finalized under a 20-million-euro deal.

Patson Daka

Arsenal should go for a new striker and that is why they may interest in another player from Red Bull Salzburg. 22-year-old Patson Daka scored over 25 goals for his current club in the last season, and he has got all the features Arteta is looking for. The performance of Alexandre Lacazette was good this season, but it seems like Arteta isn’t convinced.  With Eddie Nketiah and Pierre-Emerick in the field, Arsenal should have a striker like Patson Daka to make the team more menacing.

Christian Eriksen

This 28-year-old doesn’t need an introduction to his skills. The Danish player might not have a very good time at Inter Milan. Rumour has it that Conte is prepared to sell this player at the wage bill and Arsenal should grab this player. He has showcased his ability as one of the best central attacking midfielders when he played for Tottenham for seven years. Eriksen is the player Arsenal need. So, we can expect him to be on the shortlist of Arteta.

Bottom line

Well, these are our picks of the player whom Arsenal should look for in the January transfer window. Well, we don’t know for whom Arteta may go. But the fans can order vape juices from the online vape shop and enjoy the season because in Arteta we trust.
