Arsenal are reportedly going to be busy in the January transfer window. This is in terms of incomings, outgoings, and also negotiating contract extensions with their existing players.

Hence, Edu Gaspar and Mikel Arteta will have a lot of decisions to make in the January transfer window. The owners are also ready to provide funds to Mikel Arteta to keep the title challenge going.


According to reports, Arsenal will try to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk, a midfielder and a forward in the January transfer window. The report also claims that sporting director Edu Gaspar is leading the negotiations. It also claims that the midfielder will be a holding midfielder. This is to provide squad depth and competition to Thomas Partey for the starting spot. The report also claims that the club are looking to make a loan bid for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

However, they want to pay a less loan fee than 21 million to the La Liga giants for the remainder of the season. It also claims that Manchester United and Chelsea are also monitoring the situation. Hence, Arsenal will have to at least start the negotiations for the Portuguese forward. However, the best option for the holding midfielder position is Youri Tielemans. The Belgian midfielder has already rejected multiple contract proposals from Leicester City. Hence, the Gunners have the chance to sign for as low as 15-20 million range.


According to reports, Arsenal are also hoping to extend the contracts of William Saliba, Gabriel Martinelli, and Bukayo Saka. Hence, it is clear that Mikel Arteta is very keen to retain the young core team for the future. The report also claims that all three players are in positive advanced negotiations to extend the contract. Hence, the Gunners are hoping for positive news on all three players contracts. However, the club will also have to focus on selling the fringe players and loaning out youngsters

The club are currently open to selling players like Albert Sambi Lokonga, Rob Holding, and Cedric. There also multiple teams interested in every single player. Hence, Arsenal will hope to also balance the financial books this season. The club are also hoping to loan out young players like Marquinhos and a host of academy players. However, the club will only loan them out after signing new players. Therefore, it is also busy at the front of outgoings permanently and in the loan market.

Arsenal will hope that their new potential signings can help them compete for the title and qualify for the Champions League. They will also hope that the scouting team can find young players that have a future re-sell value. This is because they can sell them if things do not work out. The young potential players also attract large sponsorships and also help in selling all the match tickets every match day.
