Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal side have enjoyed a rather torrid season up to this point, having been knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round and falling behind the top four in the league. When it became clear that talisman Alexis Sanchez wanted out in the January transfer window, it looked as though Arsenal's season was going from bad to worse.

However, the Gunners pulled off what some might see as an astute bit of business after negotiating a swap deal with Manchester United that saw Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan move from Manchester to North London with Sanchez going the other way. 

To add to that positive news, the Arsenal look to be on the brink of signing Borussia Dortmund hitman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to bolster their attacking options as they look to steal a march on the top four in the second half of the season.

Now, another target that has been linked with the Emirates recently, Lucas Moura, has made himself available for a move after stating that he is unhappy with his current state of affairs at PSG. Moura has fallen dramatically out of favour at the French club, making just six appearances this season with the likes of Neymar, Angel Di Maria, and Julian Draxler all being favoured over the Brazilian.

However, Arsenal could face some stiff competition for the Brazilian's signature from North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur who also have a hell of a fight on their hands to secure a spot in next seasons Champions League after falling out of the top four.

Moura will take some convincing if he is to make a move to the Premier League though, after admitting that La Liga would probably suit him best.

"I believe I'd be well suited to LaLiga, with my speed and my technique.

"I think I could perform well there but the truth is it does not matter where I play as I know I am capable and will work hard.

"I am not disgusted at not being able to play more here and cannot express myself, things have changed this weekend and I'm not happy."

If Arsenal could get a deal over the line for the Brazilian, they might just come out of January in a better position, despite seeing Alexis move to one of their most fierce rivals.
