Arsenal ready to strengthen in two positions in January transfer window to aid title challenge

An insight into Arsenal’s January transfer plans has been provided.

Arsenal saw off Leeds United on Sunday afternoon by one goal to nil.

Elsewhere, Manchester City fell to defeat by the same scoreline at the hands of Liverpool.

Those results mean Arsenal are now sat top of the Premier League with 27 points, four points clear of second-place Manchester City.

And whilst it is still only early in the season, there is talk Arsenal could mount a proper title challenge this term.

To do so, though, Arsenal would likely need to improve their squad depth somewhat.

And now, Fabrizio Romano has revealed the Gunners are planning to do so in January:

“Arsenal have always been optimistic for this season, but not expecting to be top of the league and four points clear in October,” Romano said.

“They will keep going step by step, game by game with the aim to improve the whole project with new contracts, new players in the future and more.

“They will be ready in case there will be good opportunities; midfielder and winger were two possibilities considered in the summer and still in the potential plans, but it depends on the players.

“I think Arsenal need at least one more midfielder to help Arteta’s rotation, I’d have loved to see Youri Tielemans there.”
