With the January transfer window fast approaching, Arsene Wenger and the board will be looking at their squad and making decisions on any areas they may need to strengthen in.

Arsenal have had two bad results recently, losing 2-1 at Everton and Manchester City respectively and therefore have slid down the table – dropping to 4th place and nine points off the front-runners, Chelsea.

It’s clear that Arsenal need to strengthen in the January window if they want to mount a title challenge. They will need to splash the cash and show that they really mean business. Any additions could be key to an already strong squad and with Wenger coming under more pressure by the day, a big-name signing could get some of the fans back on his side.

Without further ado, here are some players Arsenal should consider signing in January.
