After three straight losses, Arsenal’s plans for a quiet January transfer window might have changed.
Unfortunately, Mikel Arteta’s team’s recent struggles have brought attention to the holes in their exciting idea.
And while a striker is obviously needed, Mikel’s side would also gain from adding a midfield player during the January transfer window.
In light of this, the gunners and Everton’s Amadou Onana are currently in negotiations for a signing that might happen very soon.
A new update on X has been released by journalist Sacha Tavolieri, who states that in-depth talks have started.
In order to stay in the Premier League, Onana would be eager to join Arsenal this month.
Speaking about Amadou Onana, Tavolieri stated: “Everton and Arsenal are currently having intense talks.”
The Belgian midfielder is eager to transfer, having always prioritized staying in the Premier League.
“Things might happen very soon… watch and find out!
Although acquiring £58 million Onana may seem wise, opinions among supporters may differ.
Amadou Onana of Everton is being courted by Arsenal for a January transfer.
This news would have pleased Arsenal supporters a lot a few weeks ago, or even in a different window.
The supporters would undoubtedly prefer to see that money go towards a striker, though, as the team’s main problem right now is a lack of goals.
Although Onana is a “outstanding” player, he does not score goals.
Conversely, some contend that adding a number six would improve midfield support for the gunner’s existing team, enabling them to score more goals.
Declan Rice would almost certainly switch permanently to the number eight position if Onana were to join Arsenal during the January transfer window.
Gunners’s wingers would be able to flourish with a formidable trio of Onana, Rice, and Martin Odegaard.
However, one of the team’s goals for a striker has suddenly acknowledged that he supports Arsenal, which might lead to another transfer this month.
It’s evident that Arteta has some moving parts in January, and the upcoming weeks may be critical to any hopes for cutlery.
