Arsenal has been linked with two midfielders in the January transfer window, says a report.
The Gunners have been atop the EPL table for much of this season, but they were eliminated from the Carabao Cup in midweek after Mikel Arteta made several changes to his squad.
That exit shows this Arsenal team lacks depth and they might need to do something about it in the January transfer window.
A move for new players will cost them money, but teams who win competitions have to bolster their squads, says a report.
Arsenal is prepared to start winning trophies and they have been tipped to sign two new midfielders.
A report on 90mins reveals the Gunners want to sign Youri Tielemans of Leicester City and Danilo of Palmeiras.
They targeted both players in the last transfer window, but neither joined.
Arsenal’s pursuit of Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans has seemed to intensify in recent weeks after the Belgian’s turnaround of form. Tielemans’ deal at the King Power Stadium expires at the end of the season and he seems almost certain to leave Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Tielemans joins Palmeiras midfielder Danilo as Mikel Arteta’s top two midfield targets as the Gunners continued to be linked with a hefty list of top names ahead of the January transfer window. Arsenal are not normally associated with spending in January with their last big signing in the winter – minus Martin Odegaard’s loan from Real Madrid – being Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in 2018.
However, 2023 provides a fresh outlook on the mid-season window as Arteta’s men find themselves currently top of the Premier League and already deep into an intense title battle with reigning champions Manchester City. The title may still not return to north London for the first time since 2004 in May, but why not go all out for it?
Tielemans would do no harm to Arsenal’s title chances. If anything, it would undoubtedly bolster Arteta’s options in the middle of the park. Despite starting the campaign poorly at Leicester, the 25-year-old has enjoyed a string of impressive performances accompanied with a couple of incredible strikes.
