It’s that time of the year again, the transfer window is open. Arsenal are sitting at the top of the table going into the New Year.
After an uncomfortable win against Cardiff City on New Year’s Day, will Arsene Wenger look to strengthen his side to push for silverware?
Here I look at three players who Wenger should buy to strengthen his side:
3: Javier Hernandez
One area in which Arsenal should strengthen is upfront, as Oliver Giroud is Arsenal's only real main striker. The Mexican international is Manchester United's third choice forward behind Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney, although Danny Welbeck is currently in tremendous form.
David Moyes chose to play Wayne Rooney who hadn’t trained all week ahead of Hernandez in their New Year’s Day clash with Tottenham. Hernandez must be looking towards the exit door especially with the World Cup in mind.
2: Juan Mata
Juan Mata is someone Arsene Wenger is very fond off. The Spaniard has an undoubtedly great talent and would bring something special to the Arsenal midfield.
Wenger is having problems selected his starting midfield due to the wealth of talent already at The Emirates but I’m sure if there was a chance Arsenal could sign Mata, the Arsenal boss would bid for the 25-year-old.
Mata wasn’t pleased after being substituted against Southampton and Mourinho stated in a press conference “I want to keep him. I don’t want him to go. That is my opinion, my wish, but my door is open”.
1: Demba Ba
According to reports, Arsenal tried to sign Demba Ba in the summer transfer window, but were turned down by Chelsea as they didn’t want to sell or loan out there players to another title challenging side.
However, Chelsea may not have the final decision as Demba Ba has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea brought in another striker in Samuel Eto’o.
The 28-year-old would be a perfect second choice forward for Arsenal, as Ba could come on with 20-30 minutes left and make an impact, Also, if Giroud gets injured he’ll be the ideal replacement to start as he has a wealth of Premier League experience.
