Following Arsenal’s poor start to the season, here’s a look at four players the Gunners could sign in the January transfer window as Freddie Ljungberg looks to get his side’s league campaign back on track;
Arsenal need to bolster their midfield once the January transfer window opens up. Granit Xhaka has proven that he is incapable of manning Arsenal’s midfield, and thus, needs to be replaced – one player who could do just that is Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Doucoure was highly sought-after last season with the likes of Everton and even Paris Saint-Germain looking to acquire his services following his impressive performances for Watford which led them to a decent 11th place finish last season after threatening to secure an European qualification spot at the start of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.
Watford currently find themselves sat at the bottom of the table having garnered just eight points from 14 games this season. Due to Watford’s poor form, Arsenal could sign Doucoure for much cheaper than the £50m price tag PSG were considering paying last season.
A strong box-to-box midfielder, Doucoure is able to make attacking contributions whilst making his side’s midfield difficult to penetrate.
In a functional Arsenal side, Doucoure could realise his full potential as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
