In terms of urgency and severity, the entirety of this list should just be centre-backs and more centre-backs. But straightforward has never been the Arsenal way. With reports pointing towards Arsenal not having much money to spend this winter, the signings on this list could come in the form of a loan deal instead. And if they were to make a big signing, it’d only occur if outgoings were to take place first.
Here are 5 players Arsenal could sign this January.
Out of favour and out of form, Daniele Rugani has found himself way down the pecking order at Juventus. This season he’s been limited to just four league appearances for the Italian Champions. At 24 years of age he’s in the prime of his developmental years, meaning there’s still time to salvage his fading career.
Arsenal is desperate for centre-backs as their established ones aren’t up to standard, while the younger ones don’t look like they’ll amount to anything special. Due to that, Sven Mislintat cannot pass up on the opportunity to acquire the services of Rugani, a defender whose confident on the ball and solid in the air – everything Arsenal currently lack.
