Arsenal eyeing first winter signing, Wenger wants to seal deal for £25m midfielder

News, NewsNow, Premier League, Transfers

Arsenal are now fourth in the Premier League table after a brilliant display against Crystal Palace but still nine points behind the seemingly unstoppable Chelsea who are currently topping the League table.

We started the season brilliantly and major priority seemed to be winning the title but unfortunately for us we lost form at a crucial point in time, losing to Everton and Man City in a week, despite leading in both games, and we now find ourselves in a scrap to pull clear of 4th place, with teams around us winning every game. Liverpool drew with Sunderland, but aside from that, all the teams around us seem to be winning every game they play.

The winter transfer window is now open, so manager Arsene Wenger can now reinforce his squad in order to challenge for the title and the latest report in the media now reckons that Arsenal is now looking to sign in-form midfielder Steven N’Zonzi who is currently at Sevilla.

A report in Daily Express says that the Gunners French manager will now make an attempt to sign the ace who is rated around £25 million.

Again this is another rumour from the papers which sound very speculative (i.e. made up) especially given that we already have players who play in that role so it comes as a surprise to me to see us showing interest in signing N’Zonzi. It could just be a short term replacement for Mohamed Elneny who will be out of the club for a month due to the upcoming African Nation’s Cup but again, £25m seems a lot to spend on a player who could possibly step in for a player who rarely starts for us.

The former Stoke City star has been a key man for Sevilla this season, who are currently third in the La liga League table just one point behind champions Barca.
