Arsenal are now only four points behind Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table following yesterday’s 3-0 victory over in-form Aston Villa, however I still firmly believe Arsene Wenger needs to sign a top class player during the January transfer window if they are to win their first Premier League title in six years this time around.
Wenger admitted earlier this month that he would like to add to his squad in January. This led to literally dozens of names being linked with a move to the Emirates this January, including the likes of Marouane Chamakh, Craig Bellamy, Carlton Cole and Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
We all know Arsenal have money to spend. That has been the case for several years now but for whatever reasons Wenger has decided not to avail of it. This transfer window is likely to see a change in Wenger’s thinking, so we at Football Corner want to know who you think Wenger should be splashing the cash on this January. Look for those big cash advance signing bonuses.
I personally believe that the addition of a new striker could see Arsenal go all the way this season. Wenger may be looking to sign someone who would be available to play in the latter stages of the Champions League, so that immediately rules out a few names. I think signing Manchester City’s Craig Bellamy would be an incredible signing for Arsenal. I know the Welsh striker has come out today and denied any truth in the rumour that he is looking to leave Eastlands, however given the opportunity, he may find it difficult to turn down Arsenal.
