ARSENAL AND DANILO TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal will not sign Palmeiras midfielder Danilo in the January transfer window. The report also claims that the midfielder lacks the experience to play for such a big club. Hence, the Gunners have decided against the move. However, a move in the future transfer window cannot be ruled out. This is because they have extensively scouted the talented Brazilian midfielder. Therefore, the midfielder might have to stay with the Brazilian giants until the end of the season.
However, there are other teams interested also in January. The report also claims that La Liga clubs and Southampton are also tracking the situation of the midfielder. However, the midfielder prefers to wait for Arsenal in the future. The report also claims that Mikel Arteta is not going to take the risks of signing an inexperienced player in the January transfer window. Another reason is Mikel Arteta is currently focusing on strengthening the attacking areas of the team.
THE GUNNERS ARE FOCUSING THEIR ATTENTION ON SIGNING FORWARDS AND WINGERS IN JANUARY
According to reports, Arsenal are now focusing on signing wingers and forwards in the January transfer window. At the moment, their priority is to sign Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, they also want to sign a striker. The potential striker will replace injured star striker Gabriel Jesus. However, it will not be easy to sign both players within the limited January budget. A number of reports claim that both winger and the potential new striker is likely to cost 85-100 million in the January transfer window.
Hence, the Arsenal owners will have to take a big risk in January to continue the Premier League title fight. However, they hope to fund the big transfers. Mikel Arteta is also hoping to get signings in the midfielder. If Danilo is not on list, there is certainly a chance for players like Douglas Luiz and Youri Tielemans. Both the players had agreed on personal terms in the summer transfer window. However, the Gunners could not agree on a transfer fee with their respective clubs.
Hence, Arsenal will hope that they can sign all of their priority players in the January transfer window. This will help them continue their title challenge against Manchester City. However, the main aim is to qualify for the Champions League this season. Therefore, the club must prioritize finishing in the top 4.
