The summer transfer window is well behind us now, but with Arsene Wenger starting to identify several deficiencies in his Arsenal squad, it promises to be a busy January for the Gunners.
Speculation over the future of Sami Khedira intensified on Wednesday after the Germany international was spotted training at the St George's Park complex.
Khedira has been linked with both Arsenal and Chelsea ahead of the January transfer window as his future at Real Madrid continues to come under scrutiny. The player's contract expires next summer.
However, Arsenal could be heading down a dead end with regards to Khedira after it was reported that Chelsea are ready to offer Petr Cech to Real Madrid in a stunning swap deal.
Cech is unhappy at Stamford Bridge and Khedira is thought to be keen to reunite with former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal's defence is another area targeted for strengthening in January and Wenger has already highlighted a potential bargain in Stephane Sparagna.
The Marseille defender is set to become a free agent in December and the Arsenal boss is confident of sealing his signature after offering him a lucrative contract.
While one youngster looks to be heading to the Emirates, another has reportedly rejected Arsenal's advances. Promising goalkeeper Nicolas Tie has reportedly already agreed to move to Chelsea despite interest from the Gunners.
At only 13-years-old, Chelsea will have to wait until 2017 to seal his signature, but reports in France claim a pre-contract has been agreed three years in advance.
Wenger is already preparing to get his own back, however, targeting a £15 million deal for long-term Chelsea target Emmanuel Emenike.
The Fenerbahce striker netted 12 goals in 28 appearances last term and would increase competition between Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud up front.
Arsenal could also be about to swoop for Croatian wonderkid Marcelo Brozovic after his agent confirmed he will travel to London to hold talks with the club.
The midfielder, 21, has a burgeoning reputation having broken into the NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac first-team at the age of 17.
It seems Arsenal can not go a week without losing another star to injury and, unfortunately, their curse has struck again.
Tomas Rosicky has confirmed that he sustained a knock for Czech Republic in their Euro 2016 qualifier against Turkey on Friday and is set undergo scans to see how long he will be out for.
Rosicky joins Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny on the list of Arsenal players who picked up injuries whilst on international duty this week.
