Arsene Wenger prepares to shock fans in January transfer window

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is contemplating making a shock swoop for Tottenham Hotspur defender Vlad Chiriches in the winter transfer window, in order to ensure that he’s not left short at the back as he enters the New Year. Injuries have left the Gunners struggling for options when it comes to their defensive third, and the summer sales of Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna appear to have adversely affected Wenger’s fortunes.
