Arsenal will look to immediately respond to their recent slump in form by targeting Manchester City’s Wilfried Zaha and Crystal Palace youngster Wilfried Zaha during the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
The Gunners could only manage a 3-3 draw against Fulham on Saturday despite taking a 2-0 lead and having the chance to take all three points with a last-gasp penalty – making it three games without a win in all competitions for Arsene Wenger’s men.
That run of results has heaped the pressure on the Frenchman, who remains adamant Arsenal aren't already out of the Premier League title race despite having fallen 11 points behind league leaders Chelsea.
According to the Mail, the Gunners have begun making plans for January in an attempt to halt their slump in form amidst fears they miss out on a top four spot, and have identified three areas they need to strengthen.
The paper claims that the Gunners will seek to bring in a striker, a goalkeeper and an attacking wide player.
While Spanish pair Adrian Lopez and Fernando Llorente are said to be on Arsenal’s radar, the Mail report Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is the man the Gunners want at the Emirates Stadium.
Dzeko has been in excellent form this season and bagged the winner in Manchester City’s 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday, however the Bosnian is still not considered an automatic choice at the Etihad Stadium.
With Theo Walcott’s future also hanging in the balance, Wenger also reportedly wants Crystal Palace youngster Wilfried Zaha, who has been linked with a move to numerous Premier League clubs.
Tottenham and Manchester City have been tracking the talented youngster, who earned his first call-up for England this weekend.
