Arsenal are yet to make their move in the January transfer market.

With just eight days remaining of the window, it's clear the Gunners need to bring in some reinforcements to challenge for the top four.

Their 2-0 win at home to Chelsea was a welcome boost and now, the club simply must follow up with some new additions.

Trusted Arsenal source David Ornstein tweeted on Monday that the Gunners were looking to bring in two players on loan this window.

Barcelona's Denis Suarez has been regularly linked with a switch to the Emirates, with Bayern Munich's James Rodriguez also a rumoured target.

The Colombian is currently in Munich on a two-year loan from Real Madrid, but has fallen out of favour at the club under Niko Kovac.

Reports have suggested that Arsenal could pay Bayern a sum of £3m to bring him to north London for the remainder of his loan from Real.

The Gunners would then negotiate a permanent deal with Los Blancos in the summer.

However, their bitter rivals Tottenham could have a big say in Arsenal's interest in the Colombian playmaker.

As reported by AS, Real are already planning to use the star of the 2014 World Cup in their bid to sign Christian Eriksen in the summer.

The Dane is unlikely to sign a new deal with Spurs and Daniel Levy may be forced into selling his star midfielder in the summer, rather than run the risk of losing him for a reduced fee.

With the prospect of getting a player in return such as Rodriguez, Levy would surely be far more motivated to sell Eriksen.

Real's plan may not impact Arsenal's desire to bring Rodriguez to the Emirates for the rest of the 2018/19 season, but signing him permanently does not look likely.

Would Rodriguez be a suitable replacement for Eriksen at Tottenham? Have your say in the comment box below.
