Arsenal have a host of transfer targets they could look to sign in the January transfer window, according to their former player Thomas Vermaelen. Mikel Arteta is claimed to be ‘ready’ to sign a central midfielder and a winger if the right deal is available. Express Sport looks at eight players the Gunners could look to bring in during the winter window.

Youri Tielemans

Leicester star Tielemans has been linked with Arsenal throughout 2022. His contract expires at the end of the season and looks set to leave for free if he doesn’t move in January. Tielemans has not had a good start to the season with the Foxes. A

Konrad Laimer

Laimer was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer. His contract at RB Leipzig expires in 2023 and Arsenal were rumoured to be keen on him.

Jesper Lindstrom

Lindstrom is another Bundesliga midfielder linked with Arsenal. He is the most attacking of the quartet mentioned in this piece.


Palmeiras star Danilo emerged as an Arsenal target late in the summer window. Injuries to Partey and Mohamed Elneny saw the Gunners scour the market for options.

Mykhaylo Mudryk

Mudryk has made it clear he would be open to a move to the Premier League, and Arsenal in particular. He has impressed for Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League campaign to date.

Pedro Neto

Wolves star Neto was reported as Arsenal’s top winger target in the summer. However, the asking price was too high for the north London club.

Yeremy Pino

Spain international Pino was another player linked with Arsenal earlier this year. He turns 20 on Thursday but is already closing in on 100 career appearances for Villarreal.

Cody Gakpo

Gakpo is one of the form players in Europe. He already has 20 goal contributions for PSV Eindhoven this season and is set to come up against Arsenal twice in the next few weeks.


The Gunners are one of a host of English teams said to be interested in the 23-year-old. However, Manchester United may no longer be in the race following the signing of Antony.
